Iinformation Available for MAGMA ECONOMICS

The following essential information available within MAGMASOFT® provides for a comprehensive assessment of cost and resource objectives in MAGMA ECONOMICS while maintaining the required quality:

Casting Information Centralized
MAGMA ECONOMICS integrates data from various elements of the casting process, including casting/core components, molds/tools, machines, and materials. Quantitative data on volumes, quantities, masses, surfaces, and interfaces provide a comprehensive understanding of the process.

Process Insights
MAGMA ECONOMICS considers essential process data such as time-related metrics, media usage and consumables. This comprehensive view helps to optimize decision-making.

Unique MAGMASOFT® Output
MAGMASOFT® generates technical information that serves as the basis for evaluating economic factors in MAGMA ECONOMICS. This output includes casting times, feeding requirements, required cycle times (including shake-out/ejection times, cooling times, and curing/drying times) as well as quantities of heat and energy consumption within the system.

Flexible and Fully Integrated With MAGMASOFT®

MAGMA ECONOMICS can be customized to the needs of your organization and is fully integrated with MAGMASOFT®. This allows you to create value for stakeholders at all levels of your organization that use or benefit from simulation results.

Evaluate Casting Designs and Virtual Test Plans
Explore different simulated casting designs, virtual test plans (DoE), and optimizations and evaluate them in terms of technical feasibility and quality as well as with respect to resource and cost targets. Gain valuable insight into the economic impact of different design choices.

Assess the Impact of Cost Drivers
Analyze the impact of different cost drivers on existing projects without the need for further simulations. MAGMA ECONOMICS allows you to evaluate and optimize cost parameters offline or inline, enabling you to make informed decisions based on real-time cost analysis.

Customizable Templates for Different Needs
Choose from a variety of templates offered by MAGMA ECONOMICS and customize them to meet your specific process requirements and tasks. Whether your focus is at the part, department, or corporate level, you can adjust the level of detail and granularity to meet your objectives.

Easy Communication
The information provided by MAGMA ECONOMICS can be easily displayed in MAGMAinteract®, providing a user-friendly display for the shop floor or for management purposes. Keep all stakeholders informed and involved in the optimization process.
