NovaFlow&Solid Training

NovaFlow&Solid is a mold filling and solidification simulation package based on advanced fluid flow and heat transfer theories. Most of the casting methods on the market can be simulated such as gravity sand casting, gravity permanent mold, low pressure die casting, high pressure die casting, lost wax method, tilt pouring and lost foam process. Commercial alloys can be simulated such as grey- and ductile iron, steel, aluminum alloys, copper-, zinc- and magnesium-based alloys, super alloys, all types of mold and core materials that exist on the market and exothermic materials as well as chills.

Through Altair, NovaCast Systems AB is offering several training options to customers either virtually or on-site*.
