The Benefits and Hurdles of Using Shot Sleeve Simulation: A Case Study of a BMW Clutch Housing

The casting process simulation, as a tool to detect and eliminate problems in the die casting process and possible defects in the cast parts at an early stage, can be further improved by considering the processes in the shot sleeve. This will be illustrated in this webinar using an aluminium die cast part, a BMW clutch housing, with results from various shot sleeve simulations. Different procedures for dosing and the sequence of the first filling phase are compared. Important basics and influencing factors are described. Advantages and disadvantages in the casting process and consequences for the cast part quality are presented.

Parameter and Casting Optimization

This webinar will demonstrate the possibilities and procedures to optimize a casting design by the help of casting process simulation. In combination with the simulation, we'll show how one can use what we call parameter and geometry optimization. By statistical methods and advanced analysis, one can go into the depth of the simulations to understand how you can improve the casting quality.

Simulation-Driven Casting Design

The webinar will present the basic rules of designing castings and how casting process simulation can help you design correct castings. The webinar will show examples on how to improve a casting design, what road map to follow and which parameters are most important. The traditional way of designing is to take the casting process simulation into account at the end just before the production should start, however, this webinar will show why you should do it at the very start of the designing process.
