Modelling modules lead to higher-quality aluminium

The Norwegian project “Modelling-assisted Innovation for the Aluminium DC Casting Process” (MINAC), has developed modelling tools that show the impact of even minute adjustments to the casting process on casthouse products. These findings will give the Norwegian aluminium industry a significant competitive advantage.

The aluminium industry is facing three challenges in particular: increasingly complex products, demanding customers and ever more stringent recirculation and recycling requirements. This means that the industry is in need of a predictable and reliable casting process that is not based on trial and error. 

The research being carried out in the MINAC project is of interest both for the quality-focused automotive industry, which is striving to develop cars that are lighter and more environment-friendly, and for the construction industry, where the products used must also satisfy stringent requirements.
