Welcome to the MAGMAacademy Webinar Portal

Here you can find all of the webinars we have produce so far. You can sort the list by clicking an interest group on the right. 

MAGMAacademy is constantly investigating new methods for educating our customers. We feel there are certain topics that are well suited to be communicated through a webinar. These are shorter sessions, usually less than one hour, where a specific new feature or concept can be discussed. While interaction is limited during a webinar, further discussions are available after the conclusion of the webinar as the presenter is always welcome to follow up discussions.   

We welcome suggestions from our customers for topics of interest. Please email the MAGMAacademy with webinar suggestions if you do not see your topic of interest listed below. Show email 

Check back often as we produce new webinars monthly.

Troubleshooting a Failure in Service Using MAGMASOFT®, MAGMAstress and MAGMAsteel

We will be using MAGMASOFT®, MAGMAsteel and MAGMAstress to see if this failure could have been prevented from occurring if the appropriate simulation tools had been used up front, before castings were made, and before the customer was made very angry.
