Abstract: Squeeze casting combines the strength and integrity of forging with the economy and design flexibility of casting to produce components with better surface finish. The primary aim of this study was to analyze the influence of the process parameters on surface roughness in squeeze casting of LM6 aluminium alloy using Taguchi method. A three level orthogonal array L₉ (3⁴) was used to determine the S/N ratio (dB), and analysis of variance (ANOVA). The most significant process parameters affecting the surface roughness were identified using F test. The results indicated that squeeze pressure and die pre-heating temperature were the parameters responsible for causing appreciable improvement in the surface finish of the squeeze cast components.
