Maximize Quality while Saving Money

Consistent core quality is a prerequisite for achieving controllable casting quality.  Low-density cores can result in core breakage or unacceptable metal penetration.  High density cores can result in excessive consumable usage, gas-related casting defects or shake-out difficulty.  Uniform, predictable, controllable core density is desired.

But, your business sells castings, not cores. Why would you use simulation technology on a process that's not your end product? Good question. Arena-flow helps you compete in today's market by improving quality while saving you money.  It's that simple.  Savings can be realized in both capital costs and operational costs.

Operational Cost Savings

While capital cost savings are immediately evident, greater long-term savings often result from reduced operational costs.  Arena-flow helps you:

  • minimize core scrap
  • eliminate trial-and-error by enabling you to gain insight into core-related casting defects
  • optimize process cycle times
  • minimize consumable usage
  • reduce machine down time
  • reduce tooling maintenance costs
