The Future of Cast Component Design & Casting Simulation

Fast, Easy, Accurate & Affordable Design and Manufacturing Simulation for Casting 

FREE to attend workshop
9 April 2019Dolphin Beach Hotel, Blouberg, Cape Town, South Africa

Are you pressured to deliver products that cost and weigh less? Is your current design solution, expensive, cumbersome and too slow to respond? See live how  Altair's casting simulation technology and lightweight design tech can help you to generate next generation products.

Casted parts need to meet rigorous quality, safety and performance standards, but the standard approach to develop castings can leave manufacturers open to initial results that require time-consuming and costly re-work. To combat this, the use of robust simulation technologies are becoming more commonplace during the product development and casting set up process, enabling foundries to eliminate manufacturing issues before physical parts exist.

Easy, fast, affordable casting technology that can be run in a day

This free to attend workshop will demonstrate how leading manufacturers are utilising Altair Inspire Cast, a revolutionary casting simulation environment, to solve their real world production challenges. Our speakers will show how the solution is allowing them to rapidly visualise production defects and efficiently rectify issues to avoid downstream production issues. In addition, attendees can see how companies are able to save product weight and reduce material consumption and cost through the use of intelligent complementary design technologies.

Join this free to attend workshop and learn how to:

  • Perform fast and easy casting simulation studies in just a few hours
  • Assess whether a concept design can be manufactured & identify issues early
  • Reduce manufacturing tryouts by creating design guidelines
  • Generate weight, material and cost efficient design
  • Simulate the performance of competing design concepts
  • Maximise the efficiency of your design and production processes


Who should attend?

This event is a must for Foundry Managers, Pattern Designers,  Design Engineers, Mold Makers and Foundry Engineers involved in the design and production of cast parts. 


All attendees will receive a FREE 60 day trial of Altair Inspire Cast along with FREE instructor led training for your team*

*New customers only

Why Altair Inspire Cast
Design for Castings
Radically new designs in combination with new materials demand designers to evaluate their designs early. Engage early with Altair Inspire Cast to simulate possible issues upfront with minimal or no training. As the process gets refined the ability to further investigate and optimize the process makes Altair Inspire Cast uniquely valuable during the entire product development cycle from early design to manufacturing.
Minimize Process Complexity
It is typical in the industry to first design a process and then simulate it. Altair Inspire Cast turns that concept overs its head by helping users evolve the process in tandem with their ideas. You can start the filling with virtualized in-gates that will guide you through areas of porosity and the right risers to compensate. Gravity, Die, High Pressure, Low Pressure, Investment and Tilt casting, all have guided templates for refinement.
Improve Quality and Profitability
State of the art, bi-phasic Finite Element formulation allows for capturing the filling and solidification process with great precision. This helps with building great quality castings with high margins.
