Software Capabilities

Flow Simulation

Temparature - Filling 10%

Temparature - Filling 20%

Temperature - Filling 50%

Temparature - Filling 90%

Solid Ratio

Static Pressure

Total Pressure : Static pressure + dynamic pressure

Start Time : The time when molten metal is started to fill up for each mesh cell.

End Time : The time, the molten metal is filled up completely all the mesh cell.

Difference Time : Time gap between the one molten metal reached firstly mold and the one charged completely regarding to each mesh cell

Velocity Vector : You can check the flow direction and velocity of molten for the section, the size of velocity is displayed as size of arrow.

Path Line Marker : Insert markers at the molten metal flowing part, then enable to track the position and direction of molten metal.
