New Release: CASTOR introduces a free trial version of its automatic part identification software
Tel Aviv, Israel. Dec 12, 2023
Tel Aviv, 12.12 – CASTOR, an industrial manufacturing software for automatic part identification, is now available for a free trial. The company has launched a free trial version, allowing potential customers to explore the capabilities of the software.
CASTOR’s software solves the challenge of identifying where, when, and how to utilize the benefits of Additive Manufacturing, by automating the process of screening parts and highlighting the parts that make a good business case for Additive Manufacturing.
Automatically identify opportunities for Additive Manufacturing
With CASTOR’s free trial, users can gain the ability to analyze and determine the Additive Manufacturing potential and benefits of a selected part. This opportunity enables them to understand how the software's analysis can empower them to make informed decisions based on a deep analysis. The deep analysis considers material properties, cost-effectiveness, digital supply chain benefits and environmental benefits. It recommends optimal combinations of 3D printers and printable materials based on specific part requirements. It estimates production costs, lead times, Co2 emission saving and gives a visualizing break-even point between the manufacturing methods. Given the insights provided by the software, users can confidently select the right technology with the right material and realize the value that AM offers.
Accelerating the AM transition
The automatic process enables engineers to identify suitable parts for AM in seconds, accelerating the evaluation process and reducing time-to-market for AM projects. “Our mission is to help every engineer reduce the time and effort required to identify the opportunities for Additive Manufacturing” says Omer Blaier, Co-Founder & CEO of CASTOR. “Through the Trial, we want to enable every engineer experience the value of our software firsthand”
CASTOR’S Full version - Identifying suitable parts for Additive manufacturing. At Scale
In the world of Additive Manufacturing, time is of the essence. The process of selecting the optimal parts for 3D printing out of thousands of parts can be time-consuming.
CASTOR's software has the ability to analyze thousands of parts at once and identify the opportunities where Additive Manufacturing makes sense, from a technical, economical, and sustainable point of view. CASTOR provides a wide range of advanced capabilities and offers multiple tools, both for new adopters and for Additive Manufacturing experts. It enables users to improve efficiency by finding weight reduction and part consolidation opportunities. The advanced capabilities include the ability to run a quick assessment of a part’s likelihood to failure, using a unique, tailored to AM, Finite Elements Analysis.
About the Company
CASTOR is an Israel-based software company that enables organizations to reduce costs and improve efficiency by automatically identifying suitable parts for additive manufacturing. By analyzing 3D CAD files and 2D drawings, it identifies cost-reduction opportunities across thousands of parts of a full BOM or assembly.
The analysis is done at scale, resulting in a comprehensive report that highlights opportunities for potential cost-saving, time-saving, and CO2 emission savings. It also provides redesign suggestions for part optimization, such as part consolidation and weight reduction.
The company is backed by Evonik, Xerox, Asahi Kasei, and financial investors. It is part of Siemens frontier and NVIDIA inspection programs and has partnerships with Stratasys- GrabCAD Print Pro, Materialise CO-AM, Oqton, UltiMaker Digital Factory ,EOS North America- Can I 3D Print This? and others.
