Aachen (Germany), January 2018. At the EUROGUSS trade fair taking place in Nuremberg (Germany) on January 16-18, 2018, the focus was on innovative solutions for aluminum, magnesium or zinc high pressure die casting processes. As a supplier of innovative software and engineering services for the simulation of casting processes, MAGMA GmbH, based in Aachen, Germany, has been exhibiting at EUROGUSS right from the start, closely communicating with the visitors to demonstrate the many possibilities offered by the virtual optimization of high pressure die casting processes.
Due to continuously increasing requirements, an innovative product design combined with a robust process layout continues to gain increasing importance in high pressure die casting. For the technologically complex processes and tools, the objectives include ensuring process reliability by meeting the quality requirements specified for the casting, in addition to cost and resource efficiency.
In the industry, casting process simulation has long been a standard tool for designing components as well as processes. With MAGMASOFT® autonomous engineering, the individual virtual experiment has now been enhanced by the definition of quantifiable objectives and critical variable production parameters, including their limits of variation as well as relevant quality criteria. This allows for the simultaneous optimization of modern high pressure die casting components along the entire development process.
