A global presence and support are guaranteed by subsidiaries and offices in the USA, Singapore, Brazil, Korea, Turkey, India and China. Additionally, more than 30 qualified partners represent MAGMA around the world.

In order to model the complex physics of casting processes, MAGMA pulls together expertise from a variety of fields and incorpororates it into creative new solutions.

MAGMA – World Market Leader in the Field of Software for the Simulation of Casting Processes
MAGMA is the strategic partner for foundries and with its simulation software optimizes the complete process of casting part production from development through casting to postprocessing. This helps to generate more revenues with products that comply with documented and predictable quality criteria. MAGMA’s core competencies:
Simulate and optimize casting processes with the help of software, in order to
- Make the properties of cast products predictable and understandable
- Facilitate an efficient casting production for foundries and their customers: a cost-effective production of optimal products with reliable properties.

Autonomous optimization with MAGMA’s casting simulation software
MAGMA’s Vision:- To establish MAGMASOFT® as a software tool for optimization in foundries - To (quantitatively) predict all properties that determine the quality of cast components - To provide tools for all departments involved in design and production in foundries, so that all aspects of the manufacturing process are describable via simulation The fact that MAGMA concentrates on foundry and injection molding technology and, therefore has accumulated more user knowledge in the company than any competitor, provides a significant technological advantage.
From a total of 135 employees, 85 are located in the headquarters in Aachen, Germany. Amongst these there are 40 software developers and 25 PhDs. MAGMA employs more casting engineers than most foundries. 35% of the revenue is reinvested into Research & Development. contact persons:
