Advanced technology is breathing new life into the most traditional of industries as NovaCast invests heavily in the latest “Click2Cast” Casting Simulation Systems at its UK non-ferrous foundry. Gone are the days when the only way to test the integrity of a casting was by trial and modification, albeit in a highly skilled environment.
The new technology allows design engineers and foundry production teams to model, simulate and test mould designs to identify and eradicate potential issues such as entrapment, porosity and cold shuts well before expensive tooling is created or test castings are run. The result is faster and more accurate mould designs, greater certainty regarding lead times and lower production costs as design changes due to unforeseen casting issues are greatly reduced.
Richard Phillips, Sales Director at NovaCast commented, “Engineering and simulation software is continually evolving and we need to ensure that we have the most appropriate systems in house. Investment like this is essential in ensuring that UK businesses like ours can continue to compete and prosper in world markets.”
