Under the above slogan, Lufthansa proclaims the end of the pandemic and stages on a billboard a reunion of business partners without the annoying side effects of technical problems of online meetings. Only time will tell whether one is rejoicing too soon in view of the worsening incidence figures. What is certain is that the VDI Congress on Casting Technology in Engine Construction took place as a purely attendance-based event. Although unlike usual not at the beginning of the year but only on 27.10. and 28.10. and also one noticed that fewer participants than usual were on site, the spirit of the event was all the more positive. Teraport also finally re-entered the dialogue with customers and presented the latest version of its veoCAST software for the analysis of cast constructions. “It was refreshing to have direct contact with customers again after more than a year and a half. Since the International Engine Congress in February 2020 in Baden Baden, it was the first time we had the opportunity to exchange face to face with our users and prospects. Besides some new contacts, we take home valuable knowledge about future developments in casting technology, but also a lot of motivation. It is simply something different when you chat together over a beer, something that, despite all the technical progress, cannot yet be reproduced virtually,” summarized Teraport Managing Director Raphael Heilig.

Opulent stands, give-aways and trade fair parties – you looked in vain for all that at Euroguss Mexico 2021. But it did take place. From 4 to 18 May, in purely virtual form. Exhibitors and visitors were able to exchange information and network with each other on a specially designed platform. Roland Weigert, Vice Minister in the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy, emphasised the importance of Mexico for the Bavarian economy in his welcoming speech: “Mexico is our most important trading partner in Latin America and an important production location for the Bavarian automotive industry. Two of our largest OEMs, Audi and BMW are located here.” Teraport GmbH presented its veoCAST software at Euroguss Mexico, for the analytical validation of 3D CAD parts regarding requirements from the foundry production process.
During the trade fair, Teraport invited visitors to an interesting exchange with Bosch and Bocar Germany on the areas of application and potential of veoCAST in the development, purchasing and sales of castings. According to Dr. David Joop, veoCAST would allow the company to start generating results for their castings one and a half year earlier and Mr. Christoph Demmin emphasised the additional functionalities of veoCAST that one does not typically get from simulation software. Compared to classical software for FEM simulation, veoCAST offers significant added value in terms of quality and time, especially due to its simplicity and speed.

Teraport’s veoCAST software for a simple and fast validation of designs in casting and manufacturing technology gains a few more functions. The latest version optimises collaboration between different departments and data exchange with suppliers and customers. A single “veo” file now allows direct access to all detailed results including generated 3D analysis geometries. The implemented template management also allows users to define uniform specifications and filter settings for the analyses depending on the application area, ensuring comparability of the results for the different departments. “Our users develop standardised processes with the help of veoCAST, which are firmly anchored in the release procedures,” veoCAST product manager Stefan Wittmann is pleased to say. “Another feature that is very well received is the Customised Report. With this, the analysis reports can now also be tailored specifically to the requirements of the different areas of application. ” The new version 7.4. is now available for all veoCAST customers.
