Defect Prediction

Prevent Defects in Your Castings

A major challenge when designing a casting is determining whether or not the final part has defects. Designers can often produce a good quality part by following best-practices for designing gating, runners, risers, pour temperatures and chill sizing. However, in today’s business environment, good may not be good enough to beat the competition. With FLOW-3D Cast‘s powerful defect prediction tools, casting designers can quickly and accurately identify and locate defects allowing parts to be produced with higher quality in a shorter amount of time.
