Metal Casting

The use of FLOW-3D Cast in your metal casting design process translates directly to savings that improve your company’s bottom line. FLOW-3D Cast provides engineers and designers with powerful tools to enhance their experience and expertise. The savings come from cost reductions and cost avoidance. Now, quality and productivity issues can be solved in less time and with lower costs by evaluating alternative concepts with simulation before die steel is cut or molds are modified. And, the effectiveness of new tool development can be improved by solving the problems before production begins.


FLOW-3D Cast contains a wide variety of physical models specially designed for casting. These special models include algorithms for lost foam casting, non-Newtonian fluids, and thermal die cycling. If you want to improve the accuracy of your simulations and the quality of your cast products, then FLOW-3D Cast is the simulation tool for you.

Metal casting simulation of a transmission case

This is a simulation of centering plate for a transmission case which uses a three piece die. These results show surface defects on the front and back of the part due to air entrainment. Courtesy of C&H Die Casting. To see a video of this simulation, visit our YouTube channel >
