Optimization of block casting

Your goals:

  • Cost-effective evaluation of possible process changes
  • Improve product quality
  • Avoiding rejects

Our portfolio:

Design / optimization of pouring system, mold geometry and thermal boundary conditions by:

  • Operational observations, measurements, tests
  • Experimental investigations on the physical model
  • Numerical Simulation (Computational Fluid Dynamics)
  • Experiences from successfully completed research and development projects at various plants
