Casting quality is a composite of multiple requirements and is established and maintained by various process steps during the casting manufacturing route. MAGMASOFT® is designed to support the lay-out and determination of optimal process conditions for melting and metallurgy, tool and mold making, from casting through heat treatment, fettling and repair. MAGMASOFT® can be used for all die casting processes, allowing the die caster to optimize die layout, minimize cycle times and predict defect formation, all before the die is cut. The special die casting module MAGMAhpdc looks inside die casting and provides a comprehensive simulation of the die casting process using allowing a detailed process and boundary description.
Comprehensive information about the local heat balance for the tool can be created for the permanent mold casting process, which is important for the layout of cooling channels as well as for the thermal regulation of the die. This allows the optimization of the tool regarding productivity and die life time. Particular for die casting MAGMA developed extensive extra features for process specification and optimization.
