CastleTHERMO: Import from CAD Software Direct import from most common CAD software (included Step, Parasolid™, Iges, Solidworks™, Solidedge™, Catia ™ and more). Complete 3D CAD   modelling functions.

CastleTHERMO: Simulation of Mould Thermal Cycle The complete simulation of mould thermal cycle is finally accessible to everyone. Semi-automatic model preparation, meshing and simplified   simulation setup in an intuitive interface that speaks the language of the foundry.

Fluid Dynamics Simulations An extremely accurate simulation that can also take into account the flow of fluid inside the cooling channels. It can actually take into account the   complex configurations of the spraying operations.

Thermal and Fluid Dynamics Simulations Identification of solidification porosity on the casting taking into account the temperature distribution of the mould. Evaluation of the effect of   advanced and dedicated thermoregulation solutions on both the quality of the casting and the life of the inserts.

With CastleTHERMO the thermal cycling of the die can be simulated: the full mould behaviour can be realistically modelled considering the cooling channels and the thermal effect of the release agent spray for optimal thermal simulations.

Actual flow in channels

Thanks to the realistic modelling of the cooling channels, fluid inside the channels is actually simulated as a flow domain. Thermal exchange between inserts and media is realistically and automatically calculated as a function of the coolant flow depending on position and time. External cooling channels, interconnections and custom circuit can be considered as well as coolings temporizations.

CastleTHERMO: User Friendly Interface

User Friendly Interface

Full die simulation can be easily set up in a few minutes even for the most intricate of dies. Solid geometries can be imported, modified and eventually simplified in the same interface. Cycle timings can be quickly specified up to a high degree of detail in few clicks.

Advanced spraying modelling

Complex spraying operations like moving robot arm spraying can be considered and modelled in detail in order to preview the actual thermal effects of detaching agent deposition. Air blowing and natural convection cooling effects can be considered while spraying is not active.
