According to Gerd Röders and Peter Kohlmeyer, the application of MAGMASOFT® was of great importance for the positive outcome of this study. “The successful evaluation of the results in this short amount of time was only possible through simulation. This work also helped G.A. Röders significantly expand its scope of application for MAGMASOFT®”, says Gerd Röders. “Today, MAGMA is an integral part of our optimization. In addition, the automatic optimization of the casting process by means of simulation is becoming more and more important for reducing the key factors development time and overall cost of our die-cast parts.”
G.A. Röders has already started the optimization of 15 additional projects. Gerd Röders closes: “MAGMA5 Rel. 5.3 offers new functions to set up robust processes and automatic optimization. We are looking forward to increasingly deploying MAGMASOFT® in the planning of new dies as well as die revisions in the future.”
G.A. Röders from Soltau, Germany, was founded in 1814 and has been owner-managed ever since. Together with its customers, the company operates along the whole process chain, from design to production. The 170 employees in Soltau are responsible for development and small series castings, while mass production is carried out by the 120 employees at Mesit & Röders in the Czech Republic. Both sites produce high-quality parts made of zinc, aluminum and plastics. Applied research in cooperation with universities and institutes generates new know-how. An own in-house tool shop allows for quick responses and short processing times. G.A. Röders is certified according to ISO TS16949. By strict implementation of international standards, the company presents itself as a partner for the automotive, aerospace and medical as well as the measurement and control technology industries.
