ALL CASTING SIMULATION


Cutting planes find internal problems


SOFTWARE IS THE SAME…


RIGHT? WRONG


Finite Solutions Inc has spent CFD-based fluid flow analysis


over 30 years developing the world’s most PRACTICAL simulation solution.


We use simulation to help CREATE an effective rigging system, not just to test an existing design. Results


Feeding zone analysis for riser design


 ALL Site Licenses  Easiest to Use  Fastest Results


 Integrated Gating/Riser Design


 Stunning Graphics


 Lowest Cost to Buy and Use


 Combined Thermal/Volumetric Calculations


from an unrigged simulation of the casting are used directly to design


efficient gating and risering, both for shrinking alloys and for graphitic


irons. Methods are confirmed using CFD-based fluid flow analysis and combined thermal/volumetric solidification calculations. We


provide the most accurate analysis,


in the least amount of time, all at the lowest cost!
