Group Picture of Attendees



Casting simulation professionals discuss advancements in technology


Casting simulation professionals were excited to join the 2nd MAGMA user Group Meeting in Thailand. M5 Engineering together with engineers from the Singapore subsidiary of MAGMA hosted this prestigious event on the 12th of March in the beautiful meeting facilities of the Dusit Princess hotel in Bangkok.  Over 50 attendees joined to share their experiences with MAGMA5. The event was opened by a speech of Mr. Christian Kleeberg, the Group Managing Director of MAGMA in Asia sharing some insight on the upcoming exiting new release of MAGMA5 version 5.3. As details have not been disclosed to the public yet the users appreciated the privileged first glimpse at the new version, which will be released in the coming months.

Even surpassing the presentations from last year, several MAGMA users showcased their success on preventing casting defects, increasing yield and lessen trials and errors........

Dr. Supparerk held a speech about the Academic license in King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi. It was great to hear how they are implementing MAGMA5 in their foundry curriculum to educate the future generation of Thai foundry men and women. The user presentations were followed by several case studies presented by MAGMA Asia’s experienced engineers and benefits as well as technical advances in the software shared. A Live demonstration of the new MAGMA5 release 5.3 was the highlight of the day which was very well received by the audience. In the Q&A session after the live demo participants posted critical questions to MAGMA’s engineers about technical advances of the world’s most used casting process simulation software.


The evolution of multicore hardware, fully supported by MAGMA5 was the next topic discussed and the results of running MAGMA5 on a 36 core workstation clearly showed how new technological advances are not an option but a necessity to increase productivity in competitive daily operations. After highly technical sessions it was time for the live launch of the new M5 engineering website: The meeting was closed with a second Q&A session where MAGMA users took advantage of the closed environment to exchange ideas and advances in their usage of MAGMA5, as well as having some in-depth discussions with MAGMA’s engineers from ferrous and nonferrous side.


We had a very positive feedback from the audience and are glad to inform that more things are planned within 2015/16 together with KMUTT and MAGMA academy. We thank all presenters and attendees for the great efforts they did on their presentations!!! See You all next year same time same place!!!
