Validation: Minimizing Risk and Maximizing Part Quality

Presentation by Rainer Böke, CEO at Böke-IE GmbH & Co.

A cast shock-tower is used to describe the procedure for using simulation with Inspire Cast. The investigation of the gating technique related to large-area, thin-walled components is described. How can thicker sections deviating from this basic structure be produced without defects? When is the use of squeezers necessary? Can porosities be reliably avoided by holding pressure? It will also be shown how the overflow and venting situation can be optimized in order to reduce re-melting costs.
