Waukesha, WI (June 27, 2016) — J&L Precision Casting recently entered into an agreement with ESI Group to upgrade J&L’s existing version of the casting simulation software ProCAST to ProCAST 2015.
“This upgrade will improve processing speed from 6 to 10 cores, and will increase our capacity for solidification modeling by 30-40%, allowing us to better serve our customers,” said Dan Brockington, Precision Cast Sales Manager.
ProCAST 2015 provides precision sand casting foundries such as J&L Precison Castings, the ability to quickly understand and fix casting defects caused by shrinkage, gas porosity, mis-runs, inclusions, and a variety of other defects linked to microstructure and mechanical evolution. ProCAST expands the scope of typical casting simulation to stress evaluation that predicts distortion, residual stress, hot tearing and cracking; addressing both the casting process and subsequent heat treatment.
