MAGMA offers comprehensive solutions for the metal casting industry, casting buyers and casting designers world-wide. MAGMA's product and service portfolio includes the powerful, modular simulation software MAGMASOFT® (with the latest product MAGMA5), as well as engineering services for casting design and optimization.
The range of application of MAGMA solutions comprises all cast alloys, from cast iron to aluminum sand casting, permanent mold and die casting up to large steel castings. The software supports the user in the modeling of the component, the determination of melting practice and casting methoding through to mold making, heat treatment, and finishing. Casting process simulation software predicts the complete casting process including mold filling, solidification and cooling, and allows the quantitative prediction of mechanical properties, thermally induced casting stresses and distortion of cast components.
Simulation accurately describes a cast component's quality up-front before production starts. The casting methoding can be designed with respect to the required component properties as well as productivity and reliability of the casting process. Costly pre-production sampling during design and development can be eliminated and development time as well as development risks minimized. Beyond that, she precise layout of the complete casting system also leads to energy, material, and tooling savings. This saves costs consequently along the entire manufacturing route.
Today, MAGMASOFT® is particularly used for the optimization of cast components for the automotive and heavy industries.
