NovaCast has been supporting global initiatives to improve access to clean water supplies since 2017, when we supported Xylem’s Watermark initiative. In 2018 we broadened our support by starting regular donations to the Planet Water Foundation, and 2020 we signed up to the WBCSD WASH Pledge for access to safe water and sanitation and hygiene … Read more
Following on from the acquisition of new 3D modelling software, and as part of our programme of continual improvement, NovaCast is investing in Click2Cast casting simulation software. The innovative and intuitive user interface will allow 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.
Richard Phillips, Sales Director at NovaCast commented, “It’s important that any investment we make must be in systems that will enhance and empower our design and engineering teams, rather than simply adding complexity. Click2Cast does exactly those things and will greatly improve both efficiency and our ability to anticipate, identify and resolve potential casting issues before we enter the production phase.”
