Practical Use of Core Simulation for Process Optimization

Dr. Jörg Sturm and Dr. Ingo Wagner

Simulation of the production of sand cores is a new method for fundamentally changing tool and process design by exploiting insights into core-shooting and hardening processes. Important factors affecting the quality of the core can be determined and quantified in advance of tool production and serial manufacture. The system’s physical basis and targeted procedures allow predictions to be made regarding the technical and economic feasibility of sand cores. This not only increases understanding of the processes involved but also opens up opportunities for improving the quality of castings.
