The 3D shoot-sleeve and shrinkage-porosity simulations of a high-pressure die-casting (HPDC) process are presented using the ProCast casting-simulation software. The porosity was studied during the casting and solidification of aluminium-silicon-copper alloy components in an H13 steel die. Excellent agreement between the simulated and experimental results was observed.

The increasing demands on heating and heat treatment furnaces in terms of temperature distribution in slabs or strips, optimal use of energy for reaching the target temperatures as well as many other factors require modern control strategies with the aim to ensure the best possible system efficiency including the up- and downstream processes. The control and automation supports the workers at the plant and provides a higher product quality.
