Investment casting process simulation

Neue Materialien Fürth GmbH

Modelling and computer-aided methods are used for investment casting at Neue Materialien Fürth GmbH for the following purposes:

  • Designing gating and feeders
  • Simulating the casting process and the solidification behaviour
  • Establishing microstructure parameters and defect distributions (porosity, shrinkage cavities)

One of the characteristics of investment casting is that heat is emitted primarily by radiation. This is reflected in the computation.
