CAD Geometry

Sand Casting

  • The total riser and gating system, filter and core are the part of the model
  • Precise physical data for exothermic materials are available
  • Graphite expansion and precise defect prediction are typical requirements
  • Validation with experiments is fundamental for good simulation results

High Pressure Die Casting

  • CAD Data
  • FEM Model
  • Mold Filling
  • Solidification
  • Residual Stress
  • Cycle Calculation

The simulation of solidification is the base for the prediction of porosities, residual stress and deformation.  Several cycles are calculated to draw near the steady state.

  • Process Optimization
  • Mechanical Properties
  • Cooling Calculation
  • Defect Calculation
  • Pressure-time Input
  • Dendrite Arm Spacing

Investment Casting

Precise geometry with high level of detail is the reason for real success.
Optimized riser and gating system leads to a minimal deformed part.  Simulation of temperature, solidification, stress and deformation are the keys to reach optimum.

Continuous Casting

The thermal and mechanical equations are coupled.  Thus the material flow and the shrinkage of the billet can be determined as well as the gap formation and gap dependent heat transfer.

  • Primary and secondary cooling
  • Material and heat transport
  • Pull (and push) conditions
  • Contact between strand and graphite chill
  • Contact between graphite and copper chill
  • Heat transport within cooling lines

Vertical or horizontal casting models

Heat Treatment

The changing residual stresses while heat treatment can be calculated in order to optimize the oven curve to reduce deformation.

High differences in temperature during a high pressure die casting cycle and enormous pressure peaks are the reasons for local cracking in the die and reduce the lifetime significantly.
