Keynote Speaker Announced! 15 years of FLOW-3D at BMW

Hubert Lang, BMW, Keynote Speaker
Hubert Lang, BMW, Keynote Speaker at the FLOW-3D World Users Conference 2022

We are extremely pleased to confirm that Hubert Lang of BMW will be the conference keynote speaker. Hubert studied Mechanical Engineering with a focus on automotive engineering at Landshut University of Applied Sciences. In 1998, he started in BMW’s Light Metal Foundry in Landshut, working in their tool design department, where he oversaw the development of casting tools for six-cylinder engines. In 2005, Hubert moved to the foundry’s simulation department, where he was introduced to FLOW-3D’s metal casting capabilities. Since then, he has led considerable expansion in the use of FLOW-3D, both in the volume of simulations as well as the number of application areas.

Today BMW uses FLOW-3D for sand casting, permanent mold gravity casting, low pressure die casting, high pressure die casting, and lost foam casting. FLOW-3D has also been applied to several special projects at BMW: supporting the development of an inorganic binder system for sand cores through the development of a core drying model, calculation of the heat input during coating of cylinder liners, the development of the casting geometry for the injector casting procedure, and the layout and dimensioning of cooling systems for casting tools.
