A lot of experts take the technology of ductile casting iron as the study object to develop their research. For example, they take the Pro/E ( professional engineer ) software as the platform of CAD (Computer – Aided Design ) modeling and secondary development. And they develop the CAD/CAE system for ductile casting iron process by the application of parametric design function of Pro/E and development tools of family table. This kind of system can provide different types of CAE and CAD platform with parameters which possesses strong portability .
The system is specially developed for ductile casting iron which introduces the complete and integrated design method of CAD/CAE into the process design of ductile casting iron. The CAD/CAE system of ductile casting iron process can take full advantages of the CAD/CAE technology and improve the design speed of the. It can meet the requirements of the design process for general ductile casting iron parts by combining with the CAD/CAE integrated design method. To apply computer technology in the can research the casting production process rapidly, accurately and with low cost. This technology plays a decisive role to completely change blindness in designing casting process scheme, ensure the casting quality and raise the productivity and technology of casting process.
