Valve body casting design

Computer-generated renderings of a valve body casting, designed by ICE for a plug valve.

During the design phase, where we use Autodesk Inventor and AutoCAD to generate the 3D models and 2D manufacturing drawings, we can section the valve body and look at the flow path of the liquid or gas, enabling exploration of the internal galleries before any physical materials have been consumed.

We are also able to accurately predict the mass of the casting before any patterns have been made, allowing our client to accurately quote the required manufacturing costs.
