What we simulate: molten metal fluid flow and heat transfer
Software we use: SUTCAST software
Features which can be analyzed: molten metal velocity, turbalance, heat transfer, hot spots, macro and micro shrinkage, chill bihaviour and many other results
Which alloys we can simulate? Al base, Steels, cast iron, ductile iron, alloyed steels, Zn based, Copper based
For any casting part we have two distinct offers:
- simulating your current gating and feeding system to check for any problems or improvement.
- simulating your casting part to design the optimum gating and feeding system
In both cases, we ask you to fill a questionaire which lets us know about your casting initial conditions. Then if you choose the first service, we simulate your system to let you know about the results as a report. If you choose the second service, we decide on pattern lay out and get your opinions on the lay out to finalize it. Later on we start designing and simulating to get the optimum system.
The cost of simulation depends on several factors:
- Alloy system
- Weight of the casting part
- Type of the service you ask for
It usually starts with 300 US dollors for a 30kg casting part and may reach up to 5000 US Dollors for a 1000kg part.
Considering all three factors we send you an invoice before starting the project and if you confirm the price then the projects starts.
