Quality Prediction of Cast Ingots
This paper shows how the quality of a cast ingot can be predicted using simulation. Emphasis is laid on those casting defects that will affect the quality of the forged end-product. The simulation of ingot casting starts with tapping a steel melt of a given chemistry from a ladle. The teeming,...
The foundry of VÍTKOVICE Heavy Machinery a.s. produced the heaviest steel casting in its history, which was successfully shipped to the customer in spring 2013: a large steel frame (6.49 x 6.49 x 2 m, GS 20Mn5) for a high-speed forging machine. MAGMA5 was used for the simulation and optimization of the casting process.
