New Release MAGMASOFT® 5.5

Benefits for Users and Decision Makers – the New MAGMASOFT® 5.5

With the release of MAGMASOFT® 5.5, you can look forward to innovative new capabilities. Efficient casting development, reliable starts of production and robust process windows – numerous new options in the release 5.5 allow for creating even more value in casting design, in toolmaking and in the foundry. Particular emphasis has been placed on further simplified and efficient use of the software and its results.

Thermal convection during solidification influences the feeding behavior


Cast Iron in Motion

Completely new capabilities are available to iron foundrymen to consider the effects of metallurgy and metal treatment on solidification and feeding behavior. With the innovative SMAFEE feeding algorithm, the influence of melt quality, inoculation practice and local pressure distributions on porosity development is even better taken into account. In addition, thermal convection during solidification is now calculated as a standard for iron castings. The impact of the flow on the resulting temperature profile influences the feeding behavior both, large castings and in series production.


The “heart” of the optimized MAGMAIron module is the SMAFEE feeding algorithm. Pressure differences in the metal are created through the combination of metallostatic pressure, local austenite shrinkage and graphite precipitation and the rigidity of the mold. The software calculates local metal transport in partially solidified regions of the casting and the resulting ability to feed the solidifying iron. Thus, both metal quality and inoculation state influence feeding and shrinkage formation in the casting.


The new feeding model is available for all types of cast iron: Grey, ductile and compacted graphite iron.


Direct evaluation of different casting defects in comparison with CT 
(Blue: Entrapped  air / Red: shrinkage porosities)


Quality Assessment in Die Casting

In high pressure die casting, casting defects due to entrapped air combined with shrinkage porosities are major causes for scrap. Tooling and process design therefore focus very strongly on reducing porosity due to entrapped gases and shrinkage. The mass balance of air in the cavity and the transport of entrapped air can reliably predicted using MAGMASOFT® 5.5. In the new “Air” result, the amount of air in the cavity and in the melt is visualized quantitatively and allows complete assessment over the entire filling process. It is possible to consistently evaluate the quality of the tooling design and the process conditions over the course of a project, even under changing situations. The corresponding masses of air and well as the effectiveness of the venting conditions can be quantitatively tracked over time using calculated curves.

In addition the prediction of feeding during the intensification phase has been improved. Thus, for the first time, all potential defects in the casting (Caused by both air entrapment and shrinkage porosity) can be evaluated using a single result. This also allows a direct comparison with CT measurements.

M5/MAGMA User Group Meeting 2019 (Thailand)

Again... thanks to everybody who attended this years UGM in Thailand. Besides the user presentations from the automotive industries we are glad to introduce some more information's and projects we did in the jewelry industries. Industry 4.0 is a hot topic in Thailand and your contributions showed that we are moving towards it...!
