FLOW-3D CAST is a state-of-the-art metal casting simulation modeling platform that combines extraordinarily accurate modeling with versatility, ease of use, and high performance CLOUD computing capabilities. For every metal casting process, FLOW-3D CAST has a workspace ready to put you on a quick, intuitive path to modeling success. With 11 process workspaces, powerful post-processing, pioneering filling and solidification and defect analysis, FLOW-3D CAST delivers both the tools and roadmap for designing optimal casting solutions.
I have personally modeled the filling, solidification, and cooling of countless castings, with the goal being to maximize metal cleanliness and soundness, and to control grain structure, segregation and stress related defects. We have had a great deal of success using FLOW-3D CAST to predict casting performance, to optimize quality, and to reduce cost by reducing rework, scrap, and lead-time.
We are using FLOW-3D CAST not only as a die cast process simulation tool but also as a general CFD software tool. If during die cast process development, any part design changes need to be recommended to a customer, FLOW-3D CAST allows us quickly and reliably evaluate part design changes, and present to a customer not only the proposed changes but also the effects those changes will have on the part performance.
