Die-cast rotor design

The method of creating a die-cast rotor is as follows:

1. An assembly of steel laminations (which may or may not be grain-oriented) containing the openings for both rotor bars and ventilation (as required) is made and clamped together to form a cylindrical iron core.
2. The assembly is inserted into a mold, which has space both above and below the core for the end (shorting) ring assembly.
3. The molten conductor material (aluminum or copper, usually) is injected into the mold and allowed to flow through the bar openings. It also fills the end ring spaces.
4. The entire assembly is allowed to cool so that the conductor solidifies.
5. The "cast" core is then shrunk onto a steel shaft.

Now we have a "cast" rotor assembly, ready for bearings and mounting into machine.
