Aachen, November 2013. At Euroguss 2014 (14.-16.1.2014) in Nuremberg, MAGMA GmbH, Aachen, presents on its stand 7-338 the new program MAGMA5 with a special focus on simulation capabilities for die casting. Through live demonstrations and presentations, the company will demonstrate how casting process simulation with MAGMA5 can be used for optimization at all stages of casting manufacturing to contribute to foundry profitability.
The practical process orientation in MAGMA5 enables all steps in the processing of a simulation to be planned and performed in parallel. This concerns comprehensive considerations regarding molding equipment and possible gate concepts on the component and the decisions about the number of components in the cavity of the die casting tool. MAGMA5 helps designing a robust design, which allows producing components in the required quality with the help of a stable process window.
The complete manufacturing process with special functionality for both hot-chamber and cold-chamber die casting processes can be described and simulated. This sets the basis for a profitable manufacture of cast components – through optimized casting layouts and processing conditions, preventative quality assurance, and cost effectiveness.
