CASTMAN reflects the high-pressure die casting suitability review simulation using FLOW-3D, which is recognized for its accuracy worldwide, through the innovation of STICND. FLOW-3D CAST is an intuitive program designed to successfully model high pressure die casting applications. Full control of shot sleeve motion combined with advanced die thermal control, mechanical parameter modeling, and accurate resolution of filling and back pressure conditions make FLOW-3D CAST v5.1 a reference solution for the most demanding HPDC simulation requirements. In addition to advanced porosity prediction and post-treatment capabilities, HPDC Workspace includes state-of-the-art chemical-based solidification and material strength models for Al-Si and Al-Cu based alloys.
