Flow and Thermal Simulations
Process Simulation in Die Casting Tooling Design
What is process simulation? It is an engineering technique used on your aluminum die casting tooling design that enables RCM to maximize casting quality and process stability. Simulation optimizes casting and tool design to meet your final product requirements. It helps engineers predict and correct potential casting problems proactively during the tool design stage.
Magmasoft® software is used to simulate different versions of the runner / gating systems and thermal design to produce the most optimal product.
- Engineering teams simulate the full casting process from injection, to solidification, to cooling. The simulations are reviewed to identify potential trouble areas in your final product.
- Design-of-Experiments (DOE) is conducted to discover and eliminate as many issues as possible.
- Simulation results are used in collaboration with your die casting design engineers and the tool vendor so necessary improvements can be implemented before die build.
- All of this is to give you the best possible casting design that results in premium quality parts.

Die Casting Tooling Design
One of RCM’s core competencies in aluminum die casting is its robust die design standards that build powerful tools. Tool shop partners have stated that RCM is more demanding in its aluminum die casting tooling design and requirements than other die casters in the industry and that the company’s standards exceed other die casters requirements. That is because RCM’s standards and proficient processes produce dynamic die designs that result in making tooling that lasts longer with a higher die life.
RCM’s reduced tooling tolerances produce fewer casting variations in your parts which result in superior casting qualities and exceptional parts. This ensures that part quality exceeds customer expectations with reduced die wear. You will benefit with reduced tooling cost without sacrificing performance of the tool.
The bottom line is that the robust die casting design standards that build vigorous tools result in making a premium product for you that is delivered on time.
