New Software MAGMA CC (nonferrous) for the Continuous Casting Process

MAGMA will present a new software for virtual casting and autonomous optimization of the continuous casting process at the ALUMINIUM fair in Düsseldorf

Aachen, November 2016. At the ALUMINIUM fair from November 29 to December 1 in Düsseldorf, Germany, MAGMA GmbH, a leading provider of casting process simulation worldwide, presents MAGMA CC (Continuous Casting), its new software for simulation and optimization of the continuous casting process especially for aluminum alloys. On its booth 12L45, the company will demonstrate a fully integrated simulation of the complete continuous casting process, beginning with the tundish through the mold to the solidifying strand. This simulation comprises the flow of the liquid aluminum, all aspects of solidification, heat transfer as well as the formation of residual stresses. Vertical or horizontal continuous casting of all thinkable profiles can be simulated. Furthermore, MAGMA CC for the first time allows virtual experimentation and autonomous optimization for continuous casting on the computer screen. The development of robust processes and optimized solutions for the continuous casting process is now possible upfront before production of the very first casting. This makes the realization of robust production processes with significant potential for savings possible.
