Metalcast improves Investment Casting with simulation solution ProCAST

Casting
Heavy Industry & Machinery
Computer simulation of the casting process helps understand the root cause of defects and evaluate the performance of modified designs without having to build tooling.
Stefan Plotz, Foundry and Engineering Consultant

Challenge

Metalcast is casting increasingly complex parts in alloys that are difficult to cast. Yet Metalcast's customers expect them to continually meet their strict quality specifications and at the same time maintain or reduce product development time and expenses.

Benefits

With ESI's ProCAST Multiple design iterations via simulation to reach an optimal design thereby reducing shop floor trials ; Reduction in product development times Rejections reduced from 25% to 3% on a valve body casting part.
