Key advantages

  • All processes
    - Take into account process parameters
    - Detect defects such as shrinkage, distribution of inclusions
    - Take into account exothermic powder and its possible deformation
    - Define all technological factors such as the presence of refractory materials or coating
    - Benefit from part- and mold-coupled thermo-mechanical resolution to anticipate mold deformation and breakage

  • Foundry Casting
    - Benefit from a shell creator and simulation of thermal behavior with coupled radiation to obtain accurate results
    - Benefit from the optimized feeder management

  • Ingot Casting
    - Manage all interactions between the metal and the wall of the ingot mold, the slag and the mold flux
