Casting Process Optimization
PHB uses internationally recognized MAGMAsoft® simulation technology to optimize tool design and casting quality. Its optimization capabilities provide a better understanding of mold filling, solidification, mechanical properties, thermal stresses and distortions, and much more. The fully integrated Autonomous Optimization Tool, CAD interfaces, and extensive databases, MAGMAsoft® provides a complete solution for design, production, and quality departments.

MAGMASOFT® provides insights in die casting for:

Casting Quality

  • Optimized gating design
  • Reduced air entrapment
  • Minimize cold shuts
  • Reduced porosity
  • Optimized shot profiles


  • Reduced cycle times
  • Optimized thermal balancing of dies
  • Optimized die spray


  • Fewer tooling modifications
  • Improved die life time
  • Reduced scrap

MAGMAhpdc support for:

  • Shot calculation
  • A complete consideration of process conditions influencing heat flow and die thermal balance
  • A comprehensive visualization of the complete die casting cycle
  • Complete consideration of die cooling and tempering
The MAGMAsoft® module MAGMAhpdc simulates the die casting process based on comprehensive thermal and fluid flow models and takes into account the process and boundary conditions specific to high pressure die casting.
