Casting and Forming Simulations

Eliminate uncertainties in the design of your casting or forming process and tool production!

 

  • Do you require an in-depth look into cavity filling?
  • Are there second thoughts on where to position venting?
  • Do you worry about porosity?
  • Do you wish an optimised and stable production process?
  • Is the lifetime of your tools too short?
  • Do you want to check your forming technology before production of the tool?

 

For a number of years TECOS enables its clients insight into tool conditions by means of process simulation thus enabling them to identify and eliminate potential errors in the design phase. With our services our clients get an experienced development partner to help them to their competitive advantages on the demanding markets.

The pictures below show some practical examples of our work. For enlargement and brief description click on them.


 

 

Our services in the range of numerical simulation of casting and bulk forming:

  • verification of tool concept and design
  • prediction of porosity, air traps and determination of ventilation spots
  • analysis of temperature stresses in tools
  • large scope of casting processes (high and low pressure die casting, gravity casting etc.)
  • analyses of tool loads and stresses
  • prediction of springback
  • forming technology check

 

Why choose us for your partner:

  • several years experience in the field
  • advanced analyses software (ProCAST, Abaqus)
  • fast response time
  • after sales services - technical support

Sample Project

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

The client had to renew a wore down rotor with knife segments for which they didn't have any documentation. With precise 3D scanning of the original and creation of functional CAD model we provided them with data for production of replacement.

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

The customer has presumed problems with excessive warpage in the stage of tool design. The material is PA66 with 30% of glass fibers. With the help of advanced injection moulding analysis we predicted the trend and values of warpage and thus successfully eliminated the problems.

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Our client has planned a single phase deep drawing process for the presented case, however several doubts about manufacturability arose. The conducted analysis has cleared all doubts.

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

We made a comparative study between experimentaly and numerically determined strength of a fibre reinforced product, which yielded extremely good match of the results from both methods.
