Liquid Forging: What it is

The liquid forging process is a light alloys melting method that entails application of a very high pressure on material in the liquid state during solidification, thus bringing the metal from the liquid state of the solid state of the desired shape. Cycle times are shorter and there is a structural integrity without porosity and rejects and an excellent microstructure due to the rapid solidification of the metal

Liquid Forging Simulation: How it works

Simulation of forging in the solidification stage of the alloy poured in the liquid state: during solidification simulation, the progress of the solid part is calculated and used to predict shrinkage positions, taking into account application of the pressure as in a forging process.
The main challenge of the simulation software suitable for liquid forging is that of being able to accurately represent filling of the mould, its solidification and the cooling behaviour of a forged liquid part. This prevents wasting material and time during production, helps in reducing or eliminating changes to the equipment, thus considerably saving energy and the costs of materials and tools.

ProCAST’s liquid forging simulation process provides an accurate representation of the entire process, including functions to analyse the filling behaviour of the molten metal, the effect of backpressure due to intake systems, solidification and the formation of shrinkage porosity.
The benefits of the liquid forging simulation are improved workpiece quality, a reduced development stage, saving energy, material and equipment costs, a simulation process design and streamlining tool that helps develop the best conditions suitable for production in real-time.

Simulation is an efficient solution for the technical challenges posed by the new market opportunities that this hybrid process creates.
