Z-CAST
Introduction
Z-CAST is..

The first Casting Process CAE system for Windows in Korea, which was co-developed by KITECH(developing solver since 15 years ago and it has been certificated in the real casting production) and Cubictek(developing the first CAD/CAM in Korea).
- Casting Process Simulation Software specified for Casting Process Analysis
- Tool for optimized casting process design and die design
- Total process simulation of metal's flow, filling, solidification
- Rapid and exact result for casting company
- Comfortable user interface based on all Window technology
