Even faster and more precise.
Today NovaCast is launching the fastest casting simulation software ever, NovaFlow&Solid 6.0.
Today NovaCast Systems is launching the casting simulation software NovaFlow&Solid 6.0 with a revolutionary adaptive Multi mesh technique and a Good Guys’ Index (GGI).
With the adaptive Multi mesh technique the simulation time is reduced by 50 %. “-With the new technique you use the mesh resolution needed for different parts of a simulation” explains Håkan Fransson, Product Manager for NovaFlow&Solid. “-The timesaving comes from switching mesh in the simulation and during filling in several steps. Where the sections are thick-walled you use a bigger mesh resolution and for sensitive areas you use a finer mesh.” He continues; “-Now there is no excuse for not using simulation. Shortening simulation time is crucial for the foundries to be able to optimize all their castings.”
Simulation software is an important tool for the foundry industry. It is used to simulate an actual casting and analyze the result to detect weaknesses during flow filling and solidification. The detected errors such as porosity, stresses and gas entrapment are corrected already in the simulation phase. When the results from the simulation analysis are in line with quality requirements the piece is going into production.
The Good Guys’ Index compares optimized simulations and visualizes the financial and environmental impact, such as energy consumption and CO2 emission. Camilla Sjögren, Marketing Manager at NovaCast clarifies “-This is an important step towards NovaCast’s vision. With our systems the foundries secure their quality, at the same time as they are guided towards reducing their environmental footprint. You see, green business is good business. For everyone.”
NovaFlow&Solid 6.0 is an innovative casting process simulation tool using FVM (Finite Volume Mesh Technology). It visualizes the consequences of a specific gating and feeding system and simulates mold filling and solidification. It simulates most commercial casting methods and can use all types of mold and core materials.
