Through the application of MAGMA5 in the first year, the average weld rod consumption was reduced by 1/3 per cast ton. With continuous improvements resulting from using MAGMA’s software, the users expect the upgrading effort can be further reduced. Due to the reduction in the casting defects, the total production time could also be significantly shortened, increasing profitability. After a year of using MAGMASOFT® the engineers at Toshiba are convinced that they can make use of the program for the upfront optimization of many new castings due to their increased confidence by mastering MAGMASOFT®.
