Cutting costs and reducing time to market are two of the most pressing problems for the casting industry. This webinar will discuss the power of simulation tools in your process and will explore the benefits including:


  • Predict, analyze, measure and quantify the most common casting defects in the earliest stages of design (E.g., Volume of porosity measured, as in Tomography)
  • Simulate the entire process – from furnace to final casting to capturing and tracking all physics. (E.g., Start with the dosing of the sleeve to predict early air entrainment)
  • Comprehensively compute radiation with view factors to account for the shadowing effects, common in high-temperature investment castings
  • Compute stresses through the process, both during solidification inside the mold and cooling outside the mold, predict final distortions and evaluate them easily with 3D scanner measurements
  • Predict grain structure including equiaxed & single crystal, microstructure, and mechanical properties
  • Automatically determine the casting part's best process window to reach the final quality goal through DOE, Optimization & Process Robustness analysis.

You will also hear from OEM’s and Tier 1 suppliers that are finding value in the use of simulation.
