Casting Simulations Help Start Production Faster10/14/2011 The new Bühler simulation computers are able to simulate the entire casting process for parts of all sizes in a very short time. This includes small die-castings like pump covers to large structural components such as frame side members and suspension strut supports. Evaluations provide precise statements about the die casting process from filling the cavities through solidification. Parameters that are correctly entered ensure that the results are realistic and provide a qualitative and quantitative representation of the die casting process in the production environment.
Simulation is not just for tooling design and process development; it is also supports safer and faster production startups. Bৃühler uses state-of-the-art simulation software from FLOW-3D.
