Hello,  I am new to the community and would like to ask if anyone has examples of a die cast mold with vacuum line inlets or multiple borings.  I have a 30% moisture content ceramic slurry for a magnesium casting and I need to heat three upside down cone shaped impressions (shapes) filled with the ceramic slurry while drawing 6 bar vacuum (88 lbs) .  I just need a resource to look at or idea on current practices to protect the ceramic infill.    I guess I need to check whether the oven has the vacuum inlet on the top, bottom etc.  This is a manual infill scenario only heating to 330 F.  Thanks for any ideas on this.
