Our range of products

Our products

Product category: Process control, models, simulation

SENTINEL®: Plataform for the Optimisation of Metalic Transformation Manufacturing Processes.

By means of Artificial Intelligence, SENTINEL® performs a multivariable analysis of the 600 parameters that take part of the metallic transformation process.
Predicts the quality of the component manufactured and sends alerts.
In real time, analises data captured during the metallic transformation process to improve relevant areas.

Control system and metallurgic prediction. Thermolan®

Based on the cooling curves register, it allows controlling the alloy quality in real time and predict the resultant microstructure in the castings regarding its thermal modulus.
Spheroidal casting graphite density, matrix microestructure (%Ferrite/Pearlite), risk of shrinkage and cementite formation, necessary time for shake out, risk of Chunky graphite formation (big part), determination of C and Si and analysis of free Mg content.
Compacted graphite casting: spheroidization index, risk of shrinkage and cementite formation and determination of C and Si.
Gray cast iron: percentage of graphite distribution type A, graphite size classification, strength (T.S.) and hardness (HB) in a bar with 30mm of diameter, risk of shrinkage and cementite formation and determination of C and Si.
Aluminium alloy: grain size refinement, SDAS, modification rate, solid fraction evolution depending on the time and fraction of the main phases in a standard sample and in real castings.

Optimization of filling system. Eidocalc®

New simulation system which includes the metallurgical quality in the defects prediction.
Simple and fast software, whose concept is not oriented to the feeding system design but verifies the behaviour of this reference with the alloy quality of that moment.
Simulations in the production plant, with an initial calculation estimation lower than 10 minutes.
With practice, it allows reducing the number and size of the feeding systems and increase the yield of the casting pattern when considering the feeding and solid fraction times of the different zones of the part.
