Introduction

    Auspicium Co., Ltd. was established in 2003. We have the consulting associate agreement with FLOW SCIENCE INC. (http://www.flow3d.com) since 2003. Also, we hold routine training courses of FLOW-3D ® in Taiwan, currently.

    The application of Computer-Aided-Engineering (CAE) in the metal casting industry will have an important role in companies that wish to remain competitive. CAE is a natural complement to Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) which are now well established. CAE applied to castings makes use of computer simulation to develop optimum methods for making castings. This allows manufacturing methods to be developed for the particular purpose of the casting with the optimum combination of cost, quality, and reliability. In the past only the largest companies could afford computer simulation. The development of relatively cheap simulation software and fast computers means that this now within the reach of much smaller companies. Auspicium give companies the possibility of obtaining the benefits of computer simulation using the experience of its highly qualified casting engineers without the investment required to set up their own facility.
