ESI Group, is a world-leading solution provider in Virtual Prototyping software and services. Founded on the physics of materials, ESIs solutions help manufacturing companies test their products virtually; eliminating the need for physical prototypes by virtually building and testing prototypes of components, parts or even complete products.
ESIs Casting Simulation Suite, ProCAST, provides a complete set of solutions for the foundry industry. ProCAST enables predictive evaluations of the entire casting process, including filling and solidification defects, mechanical properties and complex part distortion. It enables rapid visualization of effects of design changes and provides a basis for correct decision-making, from the earliest stages of the manufacturing process. ProCAST enables the modeling of all casting processes for all castable alloys, and also addresses other foundry relevant manufacturing process like core blowing & heat treatment.
The new release of ProCAST 2015, will have important developments including the migration of QuikCAST solver into Visual-Environment, enabling consistent user access to two different technologies, Finite Element Method (FEM) and Finite Difference Method (FDM), from a single platform. ProCAST 2015 will also introduce an Optimization solver which allows users to set-up DOE (Design of Experiments) and to optimize their casting process & test for robustness, aided by standard and intuitive workflows.
