Designing for Profitable Casting (South African Case Study)

Several prototype castings, scrap material and low quality castings cost foundries valuable time and money. Simulation and non-destructive testing offers technology to reduce the time from CAD concept to successful casting, and helps to minimise typical loss drivers in casting profitability. Nic Minnaar, Application Engineer at Altair & Prof. Anton du Plessis from the CT Scanning Facility at the University of Stellenbosch, will present a case study to explain how Altair Inspire Cast and CT scanning enables the design of efficient casting processes. This South African case study will demonstrate the collaborative value of Inspire Cast and CT scanning for profitable casting.
