Tilt Pour Casting Workspace Highlights
- Advanced die motion control
- State-of-the-art die thermal management, dynamic cooling channels, spray cooling, thermal cycling
- Advanced flow solutions deliver accurate gas entrapment porosity
The Tilt Pour Casting Workspace is an intuitive modeling environment designed to help engineers successfully model tilt pour casting applications with FLOW-3D CAST. The workspace includes process-specific die and material types, where rotational motions are easily defined in order to match exact machine capabilities. Venting and backpressure are included in the fill analysis for a complete analysis of air entrapment defects, while thermal die cycling and state-of-the-art solidification models are seamlessly connected to the fill through the workspace’s sub-process architecture. The Tilt Pour Casting Workspace provides a complete and accurate solution for all aspects of the simulation in a simple yet versatile modeling environment.
Tilt Pour Casting Playlist
In this FLOW-3D CAST simulation of an 8-cavity tilt pour casting, A356 aluminum is poured at 738 C by rotating the mold from a horizontal orientation to a vertical orientation over 18 seconds. The H13 steel mold is thermally prepared by simulating 5 cycles of fill/solidify/spray cooling using FLOW-3D CAST’s thermal die cycling model.
