FLOW-3D Cast is designed for modeling virtually all casting processes. FLOW-3D Cast’s highly accurate flow and solidification results capture critical casting defects including surface oxides, entrained air, macro- and micro-porosity. Other unique modeling capabilities include thermal die cycling with the ability to model robotic spray cooling and lubrication, shot sleeve flow profile, squeeze pins and thermal stresses. A dedicated team of metal casting engineers offers exceptional technical support for FLOW-3D Cast and complex metal casting simulations.
Optimizing your shot sleeve process is essential to ensuring quality parts. This comparison between FLOW-3D Cast’s simulation results and a real-world case highlights how using simulation can help engineers improve designs before manufacturing expensive tooling. With the moving object model, FLOW-3D Cast is able to accurately capture the fluid motion throughout the process, giving engineers insight from the actual ladle pour to the fast shot.
