SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, December 7, 2015. Flow Science announced today that it has released a new version of FLOW-3D CAST, its software specially-designed for metal casters. FLOW-3D CAST v4.1 offers powerful advances in modeling capabilities, accuracy and performance.
One of the most exciting new features, Active Simulation Control, gives users the ability to control time-dependent events. For example, the transition to the fast shot stage during high pressure die casting filling can be synchronized with metal arriving at the in-gates. Die casting users will also benefit from the addition of a squeeze pin model, a faster and more accurate thermal die cycling model, and the ability to use a P-Q2 diagram to realistically control the motion of the shot sleeve plunger. Two other featured enhancements include the automation of post-processing and report generation. With batch post-processing, users can request their results ahead of time and then generate HTML-based reports that can be easily shared to communicate results and analyses.
A live webinar will be held on December 15 at 1:00 pm EST that will discuss and demonstrate the new features and models in FLOW-3D CAST v4.1. Go here to register online >
