What's new in MAGMA5 5.2

MAGMA5 5.2 is the latest release of MAGMA's casting process simulation software that offers significant new and improved functionality. More than 160 improvements were implemented for the user in this new release.

A main focus of the development efforts was on increasing the efficiency in evaluating simulation results. Other areas of improvement include process simulation, enmeshment, measurement and database.

In this section, we will give you an overview of the main improvements and benefits of MAGMA5 5.2 in each area.

Enhanced result evaluation

MAGMA5 5.2 offers several new features that make it easier and faster for you to evaluate your simulation results.

  • You can now compare up to four different project versions in the result perspective. This allows you to see how different design or process changes affect your casting quality and performance.

  • You can now display your geometry and all MAGMA5 results in 3D stereo using shutter or red/cyan glasses. This gives you a more realistic and immersive experience of your simulation results.

  • You can now use new result criteria to evaluate your simulation results more effectively. For example, you can use metal cooling rate or critical metal speed during filling to identify potential defects such as shrinkage porosity or gas entrapment.

  • You can now create user-defined results based on any MAGMA5 results. This gives you more flexibility and control over how you want to analyze your simulation results.

Improved process simulation

MAGMA5 5.2 offers several new features that make it more accurate and convenient for you to simulate your casting processes.

  • You can now use a new resume point capability that allows you to restart your simulation with modified process conditions based on the previous or next-to-last casting cycle. This saves you time and resources by avoiding unnecessary repetitions of simulations.

  • You can now consider the heat transfer conditions between die casting and die as a function of the local feeding conditions. This improves the accuracy of your thermal stress simulations for die castings.

  • You can now assess the real casting temperature as a function of the current shot sleeve conditions. This improves the accuracy of your filling simulations for die castings.

Simplified enmeshment and measurement

MAGMA5 5.2 offers several new features that make it simpler and faster for you to enmesh your geometries and measure your distortions.

  • You can now use new enmeshment criteria and procedures that automatically enmesh complex geometries with high quality. This saves you time and effort by avoiding manual adjustments or corrections of meshes.

  • You can now prepare your stress simulation results for faster post processing. This reduces the memory requirements and improves the performance of your stress simulations.

  • You can now compare your virtual measurement with the real part geometry. This allows you to quantify your casting distortions more precisely.

New database of riser sleeves

MAGMA5 5.2 offers a new database of riser sleeves that were generated by ASK Chemicals. These riser sleeves are designed to improve feeding efficiency and reduce riser volume for various cast materials.

You can access this database from within MAGMA5 5.2 by selecting "ASK Chemicals Riser Sleeves" from the list of databases in the material perspective. You can then choose from different types of riser sleeves, such as exothermic, low fluorine, fluorine-free, waterglass or inorganic.

These riser sleeves have several advantages, such as:

  • Very small contact area with the casting

  • Precise breakage point that eliminates the need for breaker cores

  • No contact between the casting and the exothermic material

  • Highly customizable to fit your specific needs

  • Crumble-free and friction-free compaction

  • Environmentally friendly and cost-effective

How to use MAGMA5 5.2

Now that you have downloaded and installed MAGMA5 5.2, you might be wondering how to use it effectively. In this section, we will give you some tips and tricks for using MAGMA5 5.2 to optimize your casting processes and results.

MAGMA5 5.2 has a user-friendly interface that guides you through the main steps of setting up a project, defining the process parameters, running the simulation and analyzing the results. You can also access various help resources, such as manuals, tutorials, videos and FAQs from within the software.

Setting up a project

The first step to use MAGMA5 5.2 is to set up a project. A project is a collection of data and files that define your casting design and process. You can create a new project or import an existing one from another software or format.

To create a new project, you need to follow these steps:

  • Click on "File" and then "New Project" in the menu bar.

  • Enter a name and a description for your project.

  • Select a material database and a unit system for your project.

  • Click on "OK" to create your project.

To import an existing project, you need to follow these steps:

  • Click on "File" and then "Import" in the menu bar.

  • Select the type and format of the file that you want to import.

  • Browse your computer and select the file that you want to import.

  • Click on "OK" to import your file into your project.

Defining the process parameters

The next step to use MAGMA5 5.2 is to define the process parameters. These are the variables that describe your casting material, geometry, boundary conditions and process stages. You can define these parameters in different perspectives, such as material, geometry, process or optimization.

To define the material parameters, you need to follow these steps:

  • Click on "Material" in the menu bar.

  • Select a material from the database or create a new one by clicking on "New Material".

  • Edit the properties of the material, such as density, thermal conductivity, specific heat capacity, latent heat or solidus temperature.

  • Click on "OK" to save your material parameters.
