Rocky DEM & ANSYS: Powerful design/sales tools for Fundición Ferrosa

The transition from questions to results in the foundry industry

To offer the highest quality service to its customers, Fundición Ferrosa searched for a way to validate its products and processes. The company turned to engineering simulation tools to identify a wide range of possibilities and verify which one led to the optimal solution.

Simulation has contributed a lot to our processes and customer confidence. We can analyze original-equipment-manufacturer part designs and simulate them in Rocky DEM and ANSYS, identifying significant improvements. In some cases, it has been possible to reduce equipment shutdown days per year by 80 percent.
