DUBLIN, Ohio, As an expansion to its Casting Design Service Center, Ashland Casting Solutions, a business group of Ashland Specialty Chemical, a division of Ashland Inc. (NYSE:ASH), has obtained licenses for MAGMA GmbH, MAGMASOFT software, and ESI-North America’s ProCAST and QuikCast software. These software programs are now in use by Ashland’s Casting Design Service Center team to better assist foundry customers in quickly identifying problems so that they can further improve their processes and quality.

“The addition of these software programs strengthens our concept of providing solutions for the entire sand casting process,” said Mike Swartzlander, vice president, Ashland Specialty Chemical, and general manager, Ashland Casting Solutions. “Ashland’s expertise coupled with these state-of-the-art software programs establish the most comprehensive approach to metal solidification offered to metal casters.”

ProCAST software provides a complete finite element solution that allows for in-depth predictive evaluations of the entire casting process, including mold filling, solidification, microstructure and thermo-mechanical simulations.

QuikCast software simulates the entire casting process from filling to solidification, including defects prediction using efficient finite difference technology.

MAGMASOFT software is a comprehensive simulation tool featuring capabilities that show mold filling, solidification, mechanical properties, thermal stresses and distortions, and more for steel, aluminum alloys and Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI).
