Co-Design Training Course

Co-Design is an approach that involves a group of stakeholders in the design phase of a component with the aim of sharing the needs of all phases of implementation and defining together the guidelines of a project common.

Ecotre Valente, metallurgical and process specialists, exclusive distributor in Italy of Simulation Software QuikCAST and ProCAST of ESI GROUP, organises the co-design course allowing designers of the component to minimise porosity and shape defects.



  • Orients the design of the product towards production
  • Allows choosing the best designs
  • Improves the castability of the parts
  • Reduces defects and controls costs


The initial design of the component features difficulties and risks during production.  Aided by the Co-Design course and interacting on the geometry of the part, on the selection of material and on the quality specifications, the designer is able to modify a massive area by reducing, or even eliminating, shrinkage porosity. The design of the redrawn product reduces the difficulties and risks associated to production.

The co-design training course includes exercises with simulations on components supplied by Ecotre or by the customer.
