for STAR-CCM+®

New York and London. June 9, 2015

CD-adapco, the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, announced today that it will share a booth with German-based independent research center Access e.V. at the upcoming GIFA 2015 where it will feature STAR-Cast, the casting simulation add-on module for STAR-CCM+ it developed with Access.

Up to 50,000 visitors are expected to attend GIFA 2015, the “most important trade fair for foundry technology in the world” on June 16-20 in Dusseldorf, Germany. STAR-Cast, which leverages CD-adapco’s expertise in flow simulation and Access’ know-how and skills in casting, will be on full display for event attendees.

“This scope of this event offers an excellent showcase for STAR-Cast and the innovative work we are collaborating on with Access,” said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, Sr. Vice President Product Management. “During GIFA 2015, we will have live demonstrations of Die, Investment and Sand Casting. Attendees will also be among the first to see the new High Pressure Die Cast capability of STAR-Cast.”

STAR-Cast features a dedicated Casting User Interface, material database, physics models and specific analysis criteria for casting defects and micro-structure that are unique in the casting engineering world. Users benefit from a single integrated environment and a highly automated tool to analyze their casting processes with the objective to improve quality and yield of their process by giving an unrivaled insight into the mold filling and solidification, thus eliminating casting defects such as pores, cold shuts and misruns.
