Die Casting Simulation

The solutions developed by PiQ2 are based on a revolutionary concept for the world of software used in process simulation applications: the co-existence, within a single piece of software, of advanced mathematical calculations based on the laws of physics and the development teams’ many years of practical foundry experience.

It is therefore a tool that combines the theory of casting, governed by the laws of physics, with the practical experience coming from the foundry. The numeric results of the simulations are compared with practical experience and presented in a way that is easy to understand for those familiar with the process, while providing warnings of critical areas and suggestions that will improve the project and/or process.

Our products

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.

CastleRUN is an innovative simulation tool for the die design process that is both fast and reliable. It enables the tool designer to ensure the optimal runner geometry without running an entire simulation of the part.

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 and a gas in a simple, straightforward  user friendly interface.

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.

Castings for electric vehicles and PiQ²’s solutions

In recent years, the automotive industry has seen the transition from a market mainly dominated by endothermic engines (fossil fuels - methane, diesel, and petrol) towards a significant share of electric vehicles of various types (from hybrid to full electric). The...
