MAGMA Steel HT offers steel casters a more extensive range of alloys that can be used for the simulation of heat treatment processes. In addition, new, alloy-dependent results support more accurate predictions regarding microstructures and casting properties during and after heat treatment, for example, the austenite or martensite start temperatures.
The quality and profitability of steel castings are driven by the design of the pattern, the productivity of the process, reproducible manufacturing conditions and the properties of the cast material after casting and heat treatment.
MAGMASOFT® is capable of autonomously establishing robust process conditions and optimized solutions for the pouring, solidification and heat treatment of steel alloys. The integrated tools to statistically set up virtual Designs of Experiments and automatically assess results support foundrymen in determining optimal design and process conditions, for example regarding:
MAGMASOFT®’s unique integrated methodology of virtual experimentation and autonomous optimization lets the software automatically run through various steel casting design and parameter combinations. MAGMASOFT® helps identify a set of process conditions best meeting the specified requirements. This is done quickly and comprehensively, matching different objectives considering all the driving forces decisive for steel casting quality.
This makes MAGMASOFT® key for cast steel part designers, pattern makers and foundrymen to lay out optimal cast part designs, implement reliable production processes, minimize quality risks, set up reliable process windows and realize the full potential of cast steel materials.
