Simulation-driven Design and Manufacturing
Design for Manufacturing seminar held during 2018 Global ATC in Paris, France on October 16, 2018.
Validation: Minimizing Risk and Maximizing Part Quality
Presentation by Rainer Böke, CEO at Böke-IE GmbH & Co.
A cast shock-tower is used to describe the procedure for using simulation with Inspire Cast. The investigation of the gating technique related to large-area, thin-walled components is described. How can thicker sections deviating from this basic structure be produced without defects? When is the use of squeezers necessary? Can porosities be reliably avoided by holding pressure? It will also be shown how the overflow and venting situation can be optimized in order to reduce re-melting costs.
