Solidification simulation, fluid flow and stress analysis using MAGMASOFT™
Solidification simulation, fluid flow and stress analysis packages such as MAGMASOFT with 3D modelling such as SOLIDWORKS are used by two full time engineers to establish the optimum casting design and method
Each mould- gating system is designed to deliver the metal stream to the mould cavity in a cohesive non turbulent manner.
Ingate velocities are closely controlled to prevent metal splashes, reduce molten metal damage by oxidation.
The fluid filling of casting is simulated using Magmasoft™ simulation software.
During the simulation the mould filling characteristics such as, ingate velocity, fill time, and turbulence are validated to optimise pouring cleanliness
