Optimal design for longer mold lifetime

Structural simulation

Sooner or later you know that cracks will appear on the mold and then you’ll have to repair it with a consequent waste of time and money. What if it were possible to postpone this inevitable event as much as possible?

Here then at FORMSTAMPI we have developed a predictive calculation model of mold life. Using the information obtained from the casting simulation and the properties of the steel used, we can conduct structural simulations to accurately analyze the internal stresses and therefore the fatigue failure of the steel. This model is very useful for optimizing the design with the aim of extending the tool service life.
