It has always been widely understood that scrap metal has economic value. With ever greater focus on recycling and reducing the strain we put on our natural resources, there is also a growing appreciation of the environmental benefits metal recycling can deliver. Metals have been worked for jewellery and tools since pre-historic times and over … Read more
Advanced Casting Simulation Software
Following on from the purchase of new 3D modelling software, NovaCast has invested in Click2Cast Casting Simulation Software. The innovative and intuitive user interface allows our engineers to identify potential casting issues, such as air entrapment, porosity and cold shuts, thanks to a simple and quick mould filling simulation. The software improves efficiency as fewer design iterations are needed between design and production phases. Different mould design options can also be tried which can improve the finished component while reducing material use. Take a look at our briefing document “Casting Process Simulation – Smoothing the path to optimum casting geometry design” for more information about the use of this exciting technology.
