What is SOLIDCast?

SOLIDCast’s user friendly software simulates multiple casting types with rich features, accounting for variables in sand, investment, and permanent mold castings. Design gates, risers and test them out before making your first casting. Solidification modeling helps to shorten lead times, produce higher quality and improve yield. All of this means lower costs, higher profits and improved marketability for our clients’ foundries.

 

Casting Pour Types

SOLIDCast can be used to simulate castings pour in gray iron, ductile iron, steel, aluminum, copper-base, magnesium, nickel-based and almost any other alloy. A database of several hundred alloys, with their properties, is included.

Variety of Simulations

With SOLIDCast you can simulate processes such as green sand, chemically-bonded sand, investment and permanent mold. You can use sleeves (insulating or exothermic), chills, hot topping, cooling channels, heating elements and just about anything else that is used in the metal casting process.

Create New Castings in Minutes

SOLIDCast now contains the new Riser Design Wizard and Gating Design Wizard. These tools allow you rig new castings in just a few minutes from a 3D CAD model, using actual process data, not guesses based on simple geometry. Since casting alloy, mold material and actual process conditions are taken into account, there is no more accurate way to calculate gating and riser designs for castings. With SOLIDCast you can import 3D models from CAD, or build your own models without CAD.


SOLIDCast in Action


Why do almost 750 companies and schools worldwide use SOLIDCast™?

BECAUSE IT WORKS!! No other casting simulation program offers the POWER, EASE OF USE and ACCURACY of SOLIDCast.

Site Licensing

SOLIDCast is the ONLY system that is sold as a site license, so you can run it on ALL your computers at no extra cost! This multiplies your simulation results and payback.

Design Rigging

With SOLIDCast you can simulate processes such as green sand, chemically-bonded sand, investment and permanent mold. You can use sleeves (insulating or exothermic), chills, hot topping, cooling channels, heating elements and just about anything else that is used in the metal casting process.

Shrinkage Analysis

SOLIDCast is the ONLY system that simultaneously calculates both thermal and volumetric changes during solidification, producing the most accurate shrinkage analysis available.

Video Training

SOLIDCast is the ONLY system that provides over 15 hours of video-based training with every system. This allows new users to hit the ground running and use the system immediately, even if a live training session is not available

Automation Capabilites

SOLIDCast is the ONLY system that can be fully automated to produce true casting process optimization, using OPTICast™

No Special Hardware Needed

SOLIDCast is the ONLY system that runs full simulations in minutes, on readily-available standard PCs. Multiple analyses can be run simultaneously using off-the-shelf multicore machines.
