  • 1 Institute of Metal Science, Equipment and Technologies with Hydroaerodynamics Centre "Akad. A. Balevski", Bulgarian Academy of Science


The possibilities for simulation and optimization of foundry technologies using the latest MAGMA6.0 version of the world-famous software package MAGMASOFT are presented. The capabilities of the software are illustrated both for the quick and efficient construction of the 3D geometric models and for the diagnosis of almost all possible defects in a wide range of casting methods. Special attention is paid to the possibilities for autonomous and automatic optimization of casting technologies in order to reduce defects and increase the profitability of castings.
