Altair provided EDAG Group with software at no charge for the development of a novel, crash-resistant aluminum alloy within the scope of a research project supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
"The temperature control of die casting tools comes at the end" - this approach is still used to design temperature control channels in die casting molds. However, an efficient design and process-specific optimization of complex 3D temperature control systems in die casting tools is different.
As one of the most influential die casting trade fairs in the world, CHINA DIECASTING & CHINA NONFERROUS 2019 opens its door again to the whole world from July 17 to 19 at Shanghai New International Expo Center, using Hall N1 to N3.
The panel discussion at the 10th VDI Symposium "Casting Technology in Engine Construction" took place according to the theme "Strategic Challenges of the Foundry Industry through Shifts in Value Chains in the Mobility Sector".
MAGMA shows examples of developing the optimal gating and riser layout in combination with requiring the least amount of time and cost using the optimization tools of the casting process simulation software.
The case study of a wheel carrier shows that simulation as a design tool offers the potential to establish fast, flexible and cost-effective processes in product development. Thus, the casting industry could change significantly through the use of simulation.
The Application Builder available in COMSOL Multiphysics® is being used in universities worldwide to introduce students to multiphysics software solutions that better prepare them for the workforce. This offers considerable opportunities for the casting industry.
