The 13th China International Die Casting Conference and Exhibition as well as the 2018 China Nonferrous & Special Casting Exhibition, hosted by the FICMES and Shenyang Zhongzhu Foundry Productivity Promotion Center, took place in Shanghai New International Expo Center.
The 13th China International Die-Casting Conference
July 16, 2018, "The 13th China International Die Casting Conference" and " The 4th International Symposium on Nonferrous Alloys and Special Casting Technology" opened ceremoniously at the Novotel Shanghai Clover Hotel.
Mathieu Weber, the General Manager of MAGMA in China, hold a presentation about Quality Improvement of a Water Pump Using Autonomous Engineering, analyzing trapped air defects which appear in a pump housing manufactured in HPDC. An initial simulation easily showed the root cause of the defects. Then with MAGMASOFT autonomous engineering, the impact of the major process variables and gating system design on the part quality and cost was analyzed by the means of the virtual design of experiments (DOE), which is fully integrated into the software. Through result analysis and statistical assessment not only the defect can be solved but the foundryman understands and learns how process variations influence casting quality, allowing a robust process and reducing manufacturing costs.
2018 China International Die casting exhibition
From July 18th to 20th 2018, the three-day 2018 China International Die Casting Exhibition, which was organized by FICMES and Nürnberg Messe, attracted more than 18,000 worldwide professional visitors, especially experts in non-ferrous alloys, from the die-casting industry and related applications. MAGMA participated in this successful exhibition and presented its latest software version MAGMASOFT 5.4, with a focus on high-pressure die casting applications as well as a localized user interface in Chinese language.
