Metalcasting is undergoing significant changes like other manufacturing processes. Developments in the science, engineering and technology are reflected in this, one of the oldest and most significant manufacturing processes. The changes can bee seen in a number of different aspects of metalcasting, including new materials, melting methods, molding techniques, cleaning equipment, heat treatment. One of the more significant scientific and technological developments that has found application in metalcasting are computers and numerical methods for solving fluid mechanics and thermodynamics problems during filling and solidification process in the mold. This particular development has allowed designers to design castings and verify their manufacturability before actually making the pattern and pouring the molten metal into the mold. This allows designer to modify his/her design before investing significant resources into the process, and simultaneously shortens the development time. As a result the end product becomes less expensive and is quickly delivered to the customer
