MAGMA 2017 South American Users Meeting

MAGMA Engenharia do Brasil celebrated 20 years of the Annual Users Meeting at an event that took place between June 1st and 2nd in the welcoming city of Lagoa Santa in Minas Gerais. The main highlight of the event was the technical level of the lectures. Every year the speakers are keen to bring the best content to the participants of the event and this year the contribution was even more valuable. The presentation of new techniques, successful cases that show and prove the optimization of processes with cost reduction and considerable gain in production and quality were the key points addressed in the lectures. Each speaker's commitment further honors and reinforces MAGMA's commitment to the dissemination of relevant content to the market and adds value daily to foundries and users of MAGMASOFT®, always ensuring satisfaction in the results obtained.

The information presented in the lectures proves the effectiveness of MAGMASOFT®, show new ways, in the use of this engineering tool. In the event we also discussed optimization cases that offer statistical information and automatic optimization methods integrated with the simulation. This new interface allows you to easily evaluate process and design variables that have significant influence or that present an optimal combination for cast quality and / or productivity requirements. In addition, users were also introduced to the new MAGMA APPROACH methodology, which consists of thinking in advance about the results that each user wants to achieve with MAGMA's tools, through a complete analysis, from setting the objective, the steps to achieving the result, checking of variables that may influence the conduct of the project, to completion.



Among the companies that presented successes using MAGMASOFT ® technology, a MAGMA BONUS in the amount of R $ 5,000.00 (Five thousand reais) was raffled for the purchase of new modules, updrades and new licenses. The winning company was SCHULZ S.A represented by Maradona Lacerda who presented "Improvements in the evaluation of process parameters and design in the development phase through autonomous optimization."

The main objective of this event is to bring relevant content to the participants allied to the interaction between professionals. In this sense, another highlight of the event was the dinner on the hotel's roof, where the event was held, in which the participants were able to strengthen relationships in a pleasant and quiet environment. MAGMA also had the opportunity to honor the user Antônio Valcenir Campanholi, of the company Voith Hydro Ltda with whom he has more than 20 years of partnership and a relationship of mutual contribution and growth.

For the next year, the team is already working to hold an even more satisfying event for everyone. The information will be transmitted in the communication channels of the company.
