These industrial case studies, carried out in collaboration with foundries, show how to leverage casting simulation technology to reduce rejections, improve yield and cut down the development time for a new casting without foundry trials.
In most of the cases, the first step is to simulate the existing methods design, and compare the results of simulation with the observed location of defects to understand the causes of defects or poor yield. Then the methods design is modified and simulated again until the desired quality is achieved at the maximum possible yield. The participation of foundry engineers ensures that any constraints such as mold size and pouring rate are also considered during methods design modification.
