Die Casting Tutorial This example tutorial goes through the steps of setting up and running a high pressure die casting analysis. The tutorial begins with a meshed geometry, assigns the process parameters and completes the solution. The mesh used in this tutorial is a coincident mesh, in which nodes are shared between regions or materials. There is a slight difference in the setup if a non-coincident mesh nodes are not shared between regions is used or if an optimized coincident mesh is used.

ProCAST provides fast optimization of designs for a wide range of processes, from high and low-pressure die casting to sand casting and investment casting. ProCAST includes advanced capabilities in automatic meshing, thermal analysis, metal flow, stress and deformation, microstructure analysis and radiation effects.

The version also features a completely new user interface as well as improved performances in speed, accuracy and processing capabilities. ProCAST is the first step in our strategy to provide high added-value solutions to the casting industry. Project file management has been improved with the new software manager which provides direct access to the various modules such as meshing, pre- and post-processing, thermal and flow solvers.

New features and tools have been added to the mesh generator to enhance CAD integration with third-party software using standard exchange formats such as Step, Parasolid and IGES. The mesh generator is now available on all platforms supported by the release. A new algorithm provides automatic mesh optimization for each simulation, generating fewer elements while maintaining an optimal mesh quality.

This significantly shortens computing time. The new pre-processor offers a simplified definition and assignment of all process parameters and contains a specific thermodynamic database. To help engineers better visualize and analyze the full process, the post-processor now includes a menu and an icon-driven interface. New analysis results have been added to better assess the casting quality using hot tearing predictions and crack calculations, coupling stress and porosity results.

ProCAST also helps to better predict fatigue life of the tooling. About ESI Group ESI Group is a pioneer and world leading provider of digital simulation software for prototyping and manufacturing processes that take into account the physics of materials. ESI Group has developed an entire suite of coherent, industry-oriented applications to realistically simulate a product's behavior during testing, to fine tune the manufacturing processes in synergy with the desired product performance, and to evaluate the environment's impact on product usage.

ESI Group's product portfolio, which has been industrially validated and combined in multi-trade value chains, represents a unique collaborative, virtual engineering solution, known as the Virtual Try-Out Space VTOS , enabling a continuous improvement on the virtual prototype.

Aeronautic engineers prefer to use titanium parts to reduce the weight of engines and airframes, which naturally results in reduced fuel consumption and the production of fewer greenhouse gases. The study outlines cost efficiency techniques in the production process. This is namely done by using skull melting, a clean-melting technology for producing titanium parts. At this low temperature the technique must employ centrifugal or complicated gravity casting to ensure the parts take shape. The software had to predict potential casting issues such as inclusions, blowholes, miss runs, solidification porosity and cooling deformation.
