Ashland builds strong Arena-flow

Ashland Inc : 15 April, 2005  (Company News)
Ashland Casting Solutions, a business group of Ashland Specialty Chemical, a division of Ashland Inc., recently added three companies to the list of licensed clients now using Arena-flow computer-aided engineering software. Ashland is the exclusive worldwide sales, marketing and service supplier for Arena-flow software in the sand casting industry.
Mazda Motor Corp., Toyota Motor Corp. and Yonetani Die & Mold Co. have all agreed to license the Arena-flow software from Ashland. Representatives from these companies recently completed a four-day training session held at the Arena LLC headquarters in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Arena-flow software offers an intuitive, easy-to-use graphical interface for tooling and core-making process design in the metal casting industry. The software delivers a complete picture of the entire core-making process including the blowing, gassing and purging cycles, as well as the capability to analyze the virtual cores before investing significant time, money and material in the core-making process. Arena-flow software also allows tooling manufacturers to validate optimum designs in virtual space to ensure that cold box tooling is optimized the first time.

Arena-flow technology was developed by Arena LLC of Albuquerque, N.M., in conjunction with General Motors, NASA, the Department of Energy and most recently, Ashland Casting Solutions. Arena-flow computer-aided engineering software technology can be accessed by software license agreements as well as contract engineering projects conducted in Ashland Casting Solution's Design Services Center.

'The addition of these valued customers to our user list is quite significant,' said Mike Swartzlander, vice president, Ashland Specialty Chemical, and general manager, Ashland Casting Solutions. 'We now have a strong user base in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Additionally, our license agreements and engineering contracts now span all segments of the metal casting market including large automotive original equipment manufacturers, Tier I and II metal casting suppliers and strategic tooling manufacturers,' added Swartzlander.
