Visiometa revolutionizes the foundry industry by reducing carbon emissions through optimized casting processes. By minimizing scrap rates, maximizing yield and reducing the need for physical prototypes, Visiometa helps finding sustainable solutions for a greener future.
In the latest installment of our feature series, we explain how the incredibly high computational speed of the modulus analysis helps to enable a completely new type of integrated workflow that is so far unique in the world of foundry software.
We have been asked on social media about the utility of fast modulus computation, when conventional thermal analysis can also be done in a relatively short time today. So we decided to demonstrate the difference between "quite quickly" and "real fast" for you.
The Heuvers Circle Method is one of the first published techniques for controlling solidification and evaluating the castability of a component. It is so easy to use that it is still frequently applied today despite all the advanced technical possibilities.
The solidification modulus establishes a relationship between the volume-surface ratio of a simple casting and its solidification time. The idea goes back to a famous article by Nicolas Chvorinov, whose birthday we want to commemorate today.
The Ledebur Colloquium is a well-known event in the German foundry industry. For the Visiometa team it was a great opportunity to share knowledge, meet new people and present the benefits of our products and services.
Following its great debut four years ago, the CastForge trade fair was again successful at its second edition from June 21 to 23 this year. The number of exhibitors from the fields of foundry and forging technology have already more than doubled compared to the first event.
With almost 300 participants, the Austrian Foundry Conference was a complete success and the atmosphere was excellent. Throughout the event, one sensed that there is a great demand for specialist events and conferences in presence.
Designing a feeding system using physical solidification simulation can be very time-consuming. On the other hand, every foundryman is familiar with the use of what is known as the solidification modulus. But what exactly does it stand for and how does it work?
We are happy to present our latest software update as part of the open beta test. With plenty of new features and numerous bug fixes, this new version brings us one major step closer to the final release. The update is already available for all registered participants.
The International Foundry Trade Fair with Technical Forum in Düsseldorf took place for the 14th time between the 25th and 29th of June 2019. The event was a great opportunity for Visiometa to introduce our brand new software to the foundry market.
