Project & Design

Thanks to our in-depth knowledge and wide experience in the field of high pressure die casting, we are able to provide design support to our customers in part design prior to mould production. We accelerate the customers’ design process by fast prototyping. Our technology oriented engineering service provided by the most preferred and advanced design & simulation programs in automotive industry are used by our expert design team. Multidisciplinary approach is applied for design process in order to meet the desired optimization while preserving functionality for producing the highest quality moulds.

Part Developing by Simulation

GeoDesigner and Magmasoft allow us to see potential casting defects which come from part design. With the help of these tools, we support our customer for developing part design in terms of casting ability.

Casting Process Analysis

With Magmasoft,
By tracers, turbulance situation in metal flow can be seen during filling phase,
By porosity result, shrinkage voids in to casted part can be seen,
By velocity distibution result, runner and Gates can be optimised
By thermal distribution, thermal optimisation can be managed on die in order to get optimum cycle time
By hot spot result, solidification behaviour of casted part can be investigated.

Casting Process Improvement

Sophisticated casting process improvement techniques such as squeeze pin, jet cool etc. are applied on die for eleminating of detected casting defects.

Shrinkage was detected on the part by Geo Designer at RFQ stage

After first 3D mould design study, design was checked by Magmasoft and same problem was detected at the same area. Accordingly, it has been decided to use squeeze pin on the mould.

If squeeze pin was activated, shrinkage was not detected on area at issue.
