This is a prerequisite for the work with the other documents, e. Casting is the production process for the future because the pouring of liquid metal into a mold gives the designer the shortest possible route from the starting material to the final product. At the same time it offers the highest degree of freedom in modifying designs and choosing materials.
Casting has developed from a form of art to a high tech production process. In recent decades extensive work has led to an ever more complete understanding of this process.
Today you have access to a broad body of knowledge, covering the influence of various parameters on casting and solidification processes. This has resulted in the development of modern simulation software. Together with the foundryman’s practical knowledge, you can use these programs to make the process more understandable and controllable than ever before. MAGMASOFT is a tool for the foundry industry that helps quickly and efficiently to test a wide range of improvement options and variations regarding their effectiveness.
Highly demanding casting trials, which are expensive, time consuming and cause delays in production, are minimized or avoided altogether.
Potential problems can be recognized and removed in the design phase already. This allows the foundryman to optimize the casting? Expensive reject castings are avoided, and the quality of the finished product is guaranteed from the very beginning of production.
The most important objectives are the reduction of costs and the reliable production of the wanted quality. The entire casting process from the filling of the melt into the mold up to solidification and subsequent feeding is available as a sound physical calculation model for all casting methods and materials. You can easily change the casting geometry casting, position of the feeders, cores, etc.
All functions that are required are available to the user. It can be integrated into an existing EDP environment. There is an interface for importing already existing geometry data. It can be combined with other programs, e.
It has been especially developed for use in the foundry. You can quickly and reliably model your casting system, making it available for calculations. A wide range of modeling functions allows you to create complex casting geometries.
Furthermore, it facilitates accurate magmasott and subsequent modification of CAD data via the interface provided? Using numerical simulation, the filling and solidification processes within your casting system are calculated. You as the user magmasogt the objective of the calculation.
The filling of the melt may be your focus of interest, but you can also concentrate on the simulation of the cooling and solidification of the melt in the mold. The calculation of permanent mold processes with magmzsoft cycles and the corresponding heating and cooling processes is also possible. The graphical presentation of results on the screen is the third essential feature.
The following may help you use the program on your way to magmasofg optimized product or procedure: Whilst the simulation is very efficient, it is nevertheless only one partner on your way to an optimized solution.
You have to make a decision that is based on the results of the simulation. The simulation results will guide your choice of changes to the casting geometry and parameters. With these alterations tutlrial start the next simulation, thus proceeding towards your goal.
Therefore we encourage you to use intensively the possibilities of variation that? Even if this ends in producing some less ap? Selecting menus, menu entries or buttons Ch. In this case you have to move the mouse pointer on the corresponding button and press the left mouse button. You do not have to make your own specifications. There are different kinds of buttons: In most cases you perform the corresponding function by clicking once on the button. However, there are also toggle buttons, which include several options for a function.
You have to click on these buttons repeatedly to activate the option you want example: Grey little square boxes, which will turn to yellow if marked. You can activate and deactivate particular functions conveniently with these boxes. If you choose a yellow box again, it will turn to gray. This indicates that the function activated before is deactivated again. Little square boxes labeled with a ‘D’. The letter ‘D’ here stands for ‘Default’. If you mark a box of this kind, the program automatically chooses the default value for the function connected with this box.
If you move the mouse pointer on a menu bar entry and press the left mouse button, submenus or menu entries appear,? If you want to cancel your input and leave the menu without? You always have to select the ‘ok’ button or the corresponding menu entry with the mouse. Entering data into input fields using the keyboard. Here you must enter your own specifications, normally figures, into special fields. These magmsaoft are of a different color than the remaining part of the window.
On the left of the field its parameter is shown, usually with a colon. On the right of the field the unit of the input to be made is displayed. Input field Parameter Fig.
Example of an input field ttutorial Unit Proceed as follows if you want to enter data into an input field: Move the mouse pointer on the input field and press the left mouse button. A cursor appears in the input field. Enter your data using the keyboard. Please note the following: Your input is accepted.
However, the window is not closed. If several input fields exist, the cursor automatically moves to the next field. If you want to change your input, either move the mouse pointer again into the input field or press the RETURN key repeatedly until the cursor appears again in the wanted field. In some cases the data that you enter are displayed in a list within the window that contains the input field Fig. In this case existing data are not overwritten: The new data are displayed in addition to the existing data in the list.
Example of an input field 2 Tutrial an ‘ok’ button exists in the window, you must press this button using the mouse in order to store your input and quit the window as in Fig. In some mag,asoft you must invoke a menu in order to store the input. In the first example illustrated above Fig. Do not use the TAB key to navigate through the input fields, as in this case your input is not accepted by the program.
If you must tktorial a path to a file name, tutkrial care to separate the path components by slashes.
Do not use backslashes. Apart from the printed documentation, you can also access documents in electronic form. You can open, view and print these files with the Acrobat Reader program. In Acrobat Reader, tutoriwl are also search and navigation functions for the texts. The following documents are available: Please note that none of the documents mentioned above replaces training.
However, you should know the manual not only in parts, but work through it completely, as mentioned above. Here you find answers to those questions that are immediately connected to the use of the software.
If, for example, you wish to know how to add a cylindrical feeder to your casting geometry or wish to view magmsoft results of your simulation from all angles, you will find the corresponding information in this manual. As the manual is rather voluminous, it is divided into two parts books.
It is equipped with a detailed index Part two, Ch. Project tutoriap Modeling of the geometry Mesh generation Part one, Ch. Please work in detail through this manual completely and carefully. This is an abso? In other documents, reference to basic functions described in this manual is not provided in all cases; we expect you to know the full contents of the manual. Most windows and surfaces contain a button that is labeled ‘help’. If you activate this button, another window appears.
It contains the help text for the currently active window and its functions. In many cases this text contains references to other help topics see tuhorial. In the preprocessor, you can invoke online help by clicking on the function for which you need help.
If you want to invoke online help not specifically related to the currently active window, please choose ‘Contents’ from the ‘help’ menu of the main interface. A table appears containing the main online help topics. Move the mouse cursor on a topic text line.
