In the early 1990s, EnginSoft was an engineering company in Italy, using advanced simulation software to design and optimize civil construction and component designs. Dr. Stefano Odorizzi and his team had extensive background in using simulation tools for consulting services and for providing knowledge transfer to the industry. At that time, EnginSoft was interested in marketing CAE software products for process simulation. After agreement with MAGMA, the team developed extensive skills in foundry processes and metallurgy by strategically investing into alliances with relevant Italian associations, universities and the industry. EnginSoft has also been very instrumental in launching European research projects. They acted successfully as a prime partner in key projects, in which also MAGMA and industrial European partners were actively involved: IDEAL, NADIA and MUSIC are milestones of joint European R&D work in the direction of quantifying casting properties.
EnginSoft was also key to introducing the early concepts of virtual designs of experiments and optimization in MAGMASOFT®. Based on the development of modeFrontier, which was developed by their subsidiary ES.TE.CO, MAGMA could offer the capability to do virtual experimentation and optimization for casting processes for the first time worldwide. With the upcoming MAGMA5 Rel. 5.3, these early ideas are now fully integrated in the software. Today, EnginSoft is by far the biggest and most recognized CAE specialist and software vendor in Italy.
MAGMA wants to express its sincere appreciation to both companies for partnering with MAGMA for more than 20 years. Special thanks go to the colleagues at EnginSoft and SCSK for their patience, commitment and persistence during many years. MAGMA is looking forward to continuing our successful relationship in the years to come.
