QuikCAST, the key foundry simulation solution for the accurate prediction of microshrinkage risks in spheroidal cast iron at Azterlan research center

Casting
Heavy Industry & Machinery
With spheroidal iron casting, we had to accurately define parameters such as the enthalpy curve of the metal, the interdendritic feeding fraction and the critical solid fraction. Using QuikCAST to simulate the casting of a brake calliper, we were able to correct and improve the metallurgical quality of the manufactured parts without changing the mold design.
