C3P Software Released Cast-Designer Weld

【HONGKONG– 28th JULY, 2020】– C3P Software, a pioneer supplier of CAX & PLM solution for industrial manufacturing process, announces today the release of Cast-Designer Weld – the unique solution for complex large welding and assembly process in the market. With full chain solution from material - process design - simulation - production - automatic optimization for welding parameters and assembly sequence, with express modeling technology and the last AI science.

The Cast-Designer Weld is a milestone in terms of accuracy and simplicity. This unique solution allows the user to considerably reduce time-to-production and thus save the production costs. To satisfy the demand of the welding industry many breakthrough technologies were developed in the Cast-Designer Weld.

Handle complex big welding model: It is always the headache problem when simulates the complex big welding model, not only the very long modeling time but also the not affordable CPU time. Cast-Designer Weld has developed a line heat source to speed up the simulation time, ten times faster for different welding applications. This technology can keep the temperature field much more accurate than the inherent strain method which is suitable for any welding process.

Express modeling technology: The FastMesh engine in Cast-Designer Weld can handle a very complex CAD model to generate hexahedron mesh fully automatic, the CAD defects like bad surface, CAD gap or overlay, and the surface intersection could also be treated automatically. Many advanced technologies to make sure the generated model is high quality and economy, such as local mesh, marking point, snap tin feature and sharp edge, etc. Only a simple click can change the model mesh size so that it can be use for the different analysis phase.

The full solution from DFM (Design For Manufacturing) to production:

Weld Calculator: It supports the planning and optimization of welding tasks such as weldability, cooling time, preheat temperature, weld bead phase structure and mechanical properties.

SmartWeld: A quick optimization tool in the last GA technology to detect the best welding process parameters based on the given weld pool dimension. It could be used for CO2 continue wave laser welding, Pulsed Nd: YAG laser welding, spot weld and arc weld process.

Simulation: It simulates the physical phenomena and mechanical behavior of the thermal, metal filling, solidification, and cooling process. Dual solvers (FEM and FVM) were used in the simulation and fully coupled and a special interface used for welding sequence design and simulation.

Automatic optimization: The Cast-Designer optimizer can execute multi-criteria non-linear optimization based on DOE/GA/PSO known as artificial intelligence. The automatic optimization can find the best operation window and weld sequence.

Speaking about this product release, Ms. X. Li, Product Manager of Cast-Designer Weld said that, "We are excited about this release of Cast-Designer Weld. The market has waited for such kind of product for a very long time and now C3P software provides a useful answer. When we show our design and simulation result to our customer, a welding assembly component in 62 weld lines, more than half a million elements, but less than 8 hours modeling and simulation time, less than 0.3mm distortion tolerance, they are really surprised and excited for such kind of super-solution."
