One of the great challenges of the automotive industry is the reduction of gas emissions combined with greater energy efficiency of fuels, in this way the use of materials with low density such as plastics and aluminum are increasingly used in cars as an alternative. One of the most used processes to obtain aluminum parts is the high pressure die casting (HPDC) with the use of injection molds. These molds are expensive and there is a need for great assertiveness in your project so that reworks are minimized. One of the tools that can be used to minimize these errors is CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) software. Thus, the objective of this work will be to demonstrate the importance of using CAE in the design of parts and high pressure aluminum injection mold. For this, the QuikCAST® software will be used, particularities of the injection process and some of the main failures that can occur in the mold will also be discussed. At the end of the article, it is concluded that the use of aluminum in the automotive industry is a trend to be followed and still has a lot to evolve, and for that the HPDC presents itself as a great option, for producing a varied range of parts with a great Dimensional precision and roughness, as it is a high-cost tool, one must pay close attention to its use and, for that, the importance of CAE software is given, with it, flaws in molds and parts are possible to be identified. CAE was of great help in identifying the point of entry of material into the part and air outlets.
