Thermal Flow Part 1: Innovative Use of SOLIDWORKS for Better Casting Designs

Join TriMech Elite Application Engineer, Chris Duchaine, and special guest, Michael Gwyn, from NoRedesign.com to learn the ins and outs of designing and manufacturing engineering metal castings. 

About This On-Demand Webinar

Fits, restarts, re-tooling and launch delays are a common part of metal castings for many, but it doesn’t have to be. Casting alloys have “likes” and “dislikes” for the mold cavity geometry they flow into, and their “dislike” for a casually chosen geometry is the root of all the unnecessary trouble. However, designing geometry that your chosen alloy “likes” isn’t a slam-dunk because many casting alloys vary widely in their preferences. 

In this video you will get to learn how Thermal Flow, an analysis option within SOLIDWORKS Simulation Flow, combined with NoRedesign‘s casting design online Knowledge System enables you to design “likeable” geometry. You’ll discover how:

  • The casting designer can evaluate the transfer of heat from the liquid alloy into mold surface
  • Heat transfer rates into the mold surfaces
  • The locations of the mold surfaces are the most important factors in an alloys attitudes
  • And more!
