Option A -  Three Ingates on a Side

In Option A, the gating system consists of three ingates feeding metal into each side of the mold cavity

This gating approach is not good, because it will --
  • provide insufficient and slow flow into the mold cavity.
  • May cause misruns and flaws in the casting.
Option A is not the preferred gating system design.
