ABOUT PIQ2

WHO WE ARE

Founded in 2011, PiQdevelops and supports software solutions for die casting and foundry industries.

These innovative solutions combine state-of-the-art modelling calculation technology with the practical experience gained over the years by both founders and partners.

The company is a member of  The Centre for Multisector Technologies (CSMT).

The company is a member of the Technological Hub of CSMT, the Centre for Multisector Technologies of Brescia (Italy). As a result of this, PiQ2 takes advantage of a privileged relationship with the academic and industrial world, to work on research and development programs with highly-skilled people.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to bring advanced simulation technology from research labs to die designers and foundrymen desks.

OUR PHYLOSOPHY

The simulation should be a key tool, easy to use and able to support the operator during the die design process, from a draft definition up to final die details.

Castle Mind

PRACTICAL INTELLIGENCE FOR DIE CASTING

Castlemind is the innovative software solution that brings advanced calculations and foundry experience to the foundry, within an interface designed to make the software very easy to use.

Castle Run

CHECK OUT YOUR RUNNER IN 5 MINUTES

Castle Run is an innovative simulation tool for the die design process that is both fast and reliable (model preparation and calculation takes just a few minutes). It enables the tool designer to ensure the optimal runner geometry without running an entire simulation of the part.

Castle Body

GET MORE BY DIE CASTING
SIMULATION

Castlebody is the innovative software solution that includes very advanced mathematical features for die casting: the capability to simulate the combined action of a liquid (the metal) and a gas (the air) in a simple, straightforward  user friendly interface.

Castle Thermo

USER FRIENDLY DIE THERMAL CYCLING SIMULATION

Castlethermo is the simulation module for thermal cycling of the die: the full mould behaviour can be easily and realistically modelled taking into account the cooling channels and the spraying thermal effect of the release agent for state of the art filling and solidification simulations.
