The following examples demonstrate how our customers successfully exploit MAGMASOFT® in order to realize better casting quality, cost savings or reduction of development times especially in the area of non ferrous casting.
Cold-chamber die casting is the preferred process for high volume production of light alloy castings. Currently, half of the world’s production is manufactured using this technology, while continuous improvements in quality are broadening its application for automotive components.read more
Blind risers can only work properly for the limited number of cast alloys with a strong tendency to form a solid skin during solidification, such as steel alloys. This skin formation means that shrinkage in the casting leads to an under-pressure in those areas where feeding is needed.read more
Before start of production, many real castings are required for testing under realistic conditions. As with many of these prototype castings, the aluminum steering knuckle shown here was produced as a sand casting. The failure of the prototype casting in a test run would lead to design changes: heavier cross-sections to better withstand the load.read more
