Several prototype castings, scrap material and low quality castings cost foundries valuable time and money. Simulation and non-destructive testing offers technology to reduce the time from CAD concept to successful casting, and helps to minimise typical loss drivers in casting profitability.
Nic Minnaar, Application Engineer at Altair & Prof. Anton du Plessis from the CT Scanning Facility at the University of Stellenbosch, will present a case study to explain how Altair Inspire Cast and CT scanning enables the design of efficient casting processes.
This South African case study will demonstrate the collaborative value of Inspire Cast and CT scanning for profitable casting.

Altair manufacturing simulation tools have received an extensive amount of development efforts to expand their simulation capabilities.
Altair Inspire Cast was developed with its end users in mind. We strive to make casting simulation as easy as possible by using ‘foundryman’s language’ in our software. Every word in the interface comes from the casting process world. Not only is the software incredibly easy to use, it is also highly accurate and powerful. Get started with Inspire Cast today to further investigate and explore your casting process with just a few clicks.
To successfully take advantage of the benefits of 3D printing and additive manufacturing, a new design and simulation process must be used. It is not beneficial to simply ‘print’ a current design. New tools and advanced computational power have enabled users to optimize solid geometries for stiffness and weight, and also allowed them to simulate loading conditions and lightweight designs. These new computational tools also give users the opportunity to test how a design will perform under real-world conditions.
Wisconsin Precision Casting Corporation, an investment casting manufacturer utilized Altair Inspire and Altair Inspire Cast. for a design study that focused on the redesign of a regenerative turbine pump cover.
