Of course, we were part of the EUROGUSS 2020, the International Trade Fair for Die Casting in Nuremberg (Germany). About 600 national and international exhibitors were on site – and MAGMA did not want to miss out on it all. In its presentation “Success is more than just making use of simulation”, the company put the focus on its solution for the implementation of MAGMASOFT®. Implementation by MAGMA means establishing new goals together and efficiently achieving those goals.
For this purpose, MAGMA provides a professional team of experts that supports the company’s customers comprehensively as a “co-pilot”. From the building blocks UNDERSTAND, ACCELERATE and OPTIMIZE, MAGMA puts together an individual “roadmap” for all MAGMASOFT® users in the company and sees through the implementation of the measures.
What does this mean exactly? Well, the industry is in a challenging race for quality, time and competitive advantages. Therefore, at the MAGMA booth, the visitors could experience first-hand the economic advantages offered by the implementation and the use of Autonomous Engineering with MAGMASOFT®.
Among other things, with the “Virtual Die Casting Die”, MAGMA demonstrated how to simultaneously realize and reliably evaluate a robust tooling design and optimized production windows for high pressure die casting processes in the shortest possible time. The MAGMAacademy was present as well to present its current further education offerings for foundrymen, casting designers and casting consumers. The “Foundrymen´s Playground” playfully showed how easy it is to virtually optimize casting designs today. Here, the visitors were able to interactively run their own simulations in a virtual test field, while simultaneously pursuing different quality and cost-related objectives – what a great opportunity to exchange ideas with the Academy staff. In addition to many new contacts, regular customers of MAGMA, too, came to the booth to catch up on the latest developments. Gunar Roth from ZF Friedrichshafen has known MAGMA for a very long time and learned about the new possibilities of MAGMAinteract®. Thanks to the easy and quick presentation of information, the free 3D viewer supports the effective communication between suppliers and customers.
David S. Gower from Newform also enjoys exchanging ideas with the exhibitors at EUROGUSS. “It’s really great to see what MAGMA has done here,” he concludes. In his hand he holds one of the popular orange pullback cars. All those visiting the MAGMA booth could take a “small Porsche” home with them.
Other MAGMA contributions at EUROGUSS were Götz Hartmann’s presentation on “ and Dr. Horst Bramann’s participation in the panel discussion “Foundry – Networking and Data Transfer”. The future of modern manufacturing lies in a highly flexible, networked production that is specifically tailored to the customer demands. The panel discussion addressed chances, challenges and risks for the foundries.
