C3P Software announces the release of CAST-DESIGNER CPI for Pro-ENGINEER
A New Generation Express Casting Process Insight for Pressure Die casting build in Pro-Engineer
[New York – December 16th, 2010]– C3P Software, a pioneer supplier of CAX solution for industrial manufacturing processes, announces today the release of Cast-Designer CPI for Pro-Engineer, a new generation of express Casting Process Insight for die casting industries build in PTC’s Pro-Engineer user’s environment.
Cast-Designer CPI is CAE technology built from day one specifically for integration within the MCAD design process. This innovative software puts fluid flow analysis, heat transfer and solidification analysis into the hands of the same people who are responsible for developing the casting, mould and making engineering decisions.
With Cast-Designer CPI, the user can detect part features with potential solidification problems, evaluate gate system and overflow design alternatives, and generally evaluate castability. The user does not have to be an expert in simulation to use CPI and the time required for evaluating a die casting design is remarkably quick.
The Return On Investment (ROI) case for Cast-Designer CPI is compelling. And while there are numerous economic benefits and competitive advantages associated with bringing better products to market ahead of schedule, most companies justify the purchase of Cast-Designer CPI just by the reduction of expenses related to staff time and materials, the two major budget items managed at the department level.
On average for a company developing casting mould without the benefit of a CAE tool, implementing CAST-DESIGNER CPI can reduce the time it takes to develop and prove a new mould from 25 days to 12 days (a 52% reduction) and can reduce the costs associated with staff time and materials from $19,320 to $1,590 (a 92% reduction).
With CAST-DESIGNER CPI for Pro-Engineer, your Pro/E geometry drives the simulation process. When you make a design change in Pro/E, you see the change instantly in CAST-DESIGNER CPI in a few seconds. It’s hassle free.
Five Ways CAST-DESIGNER CPI adds value “out of the box”
- No special skills or hardware required, very short learning curve.
- Works within your current 3D MCAD system and uses native assemblies for simulation
- 52% faster than building and testing physical prototypes in mould industries
- Save 92% cost for trial and error physical prototypes testing
- Lets you see everything going on in your design instead of a few data points from a physical test
