Consequently utilizing the methodology of virtual Design of Experiments and Autonomous Optimization, robust process parameters and optimized casting layouts can be established for all cast materials and processes including heat treatment and melt metallurgy — efficiently and comprehensively at the same time. The range of results comprises residual stresses and distortion, microstructure formation and local properties. A modular software design covers the complete process chain of cast components. The software can be applied for optimized process robustness and part quality from conceptual to final component design, during the tooling layout and prototyping, all the way through to the production and heat treatment processes.

Aachen, October The software is based on more than 20 years of development, during which the Aachen based company has continued to innovate on and establish casting process simulation as a standard.
Within the software, this is made possible through different perspectives which can be used simultaneously by the user. Integrated information and tools for simulation projects In MAGMA5, all steps that are necessary for casting process simulation can be specified and performed from a process perspective.
This allows the complete production process from geometry input, through the design of gating, risering and tooling, on to solidification and finishing processes such as heat treatment, to be described and simulated.
In the process perspective, all information about the used materials, metallurgy and melting practice, production conditions and finishing processes such as heat treatment come together. This allows the user to get a complete overview of the entire manufacturing process he wants to simulate.
Altogether, the process orientation of MAGMA5 sets the basis for a profitable manufacture of cast components — through improved casting layouts, achieving the required casting quality, and saving costs.
New advanced turbulence models as well as the consideration of surface tension improve the mold filling prediction for gravity castings. And, tracer particles can be modeled with mass and size to evaluate slag inclusions. Burn-on and penetration criteria help identify sand related surface defects. Moreover, a new module for the simulation of as-cast local microstructures and properties of aluminum alloys is available with MAGMAnonferrous.
The stress module MAGMAstress has also been completely reworked and for the first time offers the option to simulate thermally induced casting stresses for the complete manufacturing route. A new and comprehensive plasticity model provides improved accuracy, because it considers temperature-dependent as well as time-dependent effects on stresses and strains. Clearly presented results Simulation results such as 3D graphics, diagrams, and tables can be shown in multiple views and can be displayed in selectable levels of detail.
This means that results can be evaluated reliably in order to allow an optimization of cast components and casting processes. New software architecture secures future developments The new methodology that MAGMA5 provides is mirrored in the software architecture. Technically, the software is built on a completely new platform and, as it is also modularly extendable and scalable, it offers development potential for the coming years.
MAGMA5 is fully native Windows compliant and runs on bit Windows operating systems, offering the advantage of greatly increased memory access. MAGMA5 supports multi-core architectures effectively. The simulation of permanent mold and die casting processes including gravity die casting is available with MAGMA5 Version 5. Contact Engineering Software tutorials training.
Consequently utilizing the methodology of virtual Design of Experiments and Autonomous Optimization, robust process parameters and optimized casting layouts can be established for all cast materials and processes including heat treatment and melt metallurgy — efficiently and comprehensively at the same time. The range of results comprises residual stresses and distortion, microstructure formation and local properties. Autonomous optimization of gating systems to avoid turbulence and gas inclusions. Virtual Design of Experiments to autonomously optimize process conditions to reduce casting distortion. Autonomous optimization of cooling system layout for thermal balance in permanent molds.
