Cast Iron – A predictable material

Cast Iron – A predictable material

During the last 25 years, casting process simulation has developed from predicting hot spots and solidification paths to an integral assessment and optimization tool for foundries for the entire manufacturing route of castings. Modeling cast irons has always been a...

Casting Distortions During Solution Treatment

Aluminum castings are often heat-treated to increase mechanical properties and simultaneously decrease thermal stresses induced by the casting process. The heat treatment process consists of 3 steps. First is solution treatment, where the part is heated to a...
