MAGMA Foundry Technologies Inc. donates to Industrial Studies program

May 10, 2013

PLATTEVILLE, Wis.­­­ — The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Industrial Studies program received a donation of 10 seats of MAGMASOFT foundry engineering software from MAGMA Foundry Technologies Inc. of Schaumburg, Ill.

MAGMASOFT is used throughout the metal casting industry, especially for the optimization of cast components in automotive and heavy industry applications.

“We provided UW-Platteville with licenses to the program so that professors can use them to teach foundry engineers about the metal casting processing,” said Christof Heisser, president of MAGMA Foundry Technologies Inc. “People who can work with software are essential to the foundry industry today.”

“We are very selective on choosing who we donate to,” said Heisser. “UW-Platteville was selected because the program at the university educates future engineers and workers for foundries. We like the teaching style that is used to give students hands on experience.”

“MAGMASOFT is useful for students because it can simulate what happens in industry,” said Dr. Kyle Metzloff, professor of industrial studies. Metzloff instructs the students on the use of the program.
