Wax Injection: What it is
The wax injection forming process is able to meet diverse design requirements and is used for small/medium-sized and very complex products which require extreme precision and with limited production, such as jewellery, artificial prostheses, valves and turbines in the automotive and aeronautic sector, etc. The process requires special care and its models feature certain solidification problems, filling difficulties, superficial discontinuity of the joining lines, residual deformations, which therefore often entail a further process, resulting in an increase in production times and costs.
Wax Injection Simulation: How it works
Simulation of wax injection into aluminum, steel and rubber moulds.
With the valuable aid of QuikCAST and ProCAST simulation software, the increase in time and costs is cut by optimising the settings of the wax injection parameters, reducing potential defects and precisely predicting the dimensions and structure of the wax model, taking into account deformation and shrinkage.
Moreover, all the properties of the wax can be controlled, such as volume expansion, the thermal conductivity coefficient, thermal capacity, etc. thus having the entire wax injection process.
The simulation software guides the user step-by-step in importing geometries, selecting materials and setting process parameters. This test requires little effort from personnel, also thanks to the simple and intuitive interface, which guides them in calculating the simulation, displaying how the piece is coming along while the software is computing.
QuikCAST and ProCAST software is designed to operate on desktop PCs or workstations.
