Conference on casting technology and electric mobility

Casting technology is widely used in the production of conventional combustion engines. However, at a VDI conference in Bremen last week, OEMs, suppliers and foundrymen discussed the new applications and requirements that the industry has to deal with in terms of e-mobility. Teraport took the opportunity to present the latest version 7.0 of its veoCAST software: “We came to Bremen with subdued expectations at first. The topic is new and the circle of participants is certainly not as large as in the area of cylinder heads and transmission housings. We were therefore all the more positively surprised by the interesting and detailed exchange on site”, summarizes Teraport shareholder and managing director Raphael Heilig with satisfaction. “With regard to the Teraport software for quality assurance of cast components, it was observed that the tool is becoming interesting for more and more areas outside the design departments. “We started with veoCAST in order to provide designers of cast components with a quick and easy tool for checking their development. Now we are noticing that more and more buyers, technical sales people and project managers in foundries are requesting it. Wherever a cast design has to be evaluated in terms of manufacturability within a short period of time, for example for a quotation, veoCAST shows its strengths”.
