Simulation in the plastic industry

Simulation in the plastic industry …

is applied in order to improve parts made from thermoplastic and thermosetting materials in relation to the intended production processes (e.g. compression molding, injection molding, transfer molding).
Furthermore simulation in the plastic industry is used to support the surrounding conditions, like heating/cooling, positioning of injection gates and sensors and finding out the expected process cycle.

It is also used as a basis for structural simulation by finite element analysis (FEA)

Simulation in the plastic industry

For simulation in the plastic industry we are using state-of-the-art CAE methods. Such simulations are currently done with software from Moldex3D, SolidWorks and Creo (formally known as ProE) and ANSYS.

Our simulations are intended to give you the following information:

  • fill of the cavity (mold-flow-analysis)
  • analysis of encapsulation processes (electronics)
  • thermal layout of molds
  • validation of heating rods and sensors (thermosets)
  • warpage of the product, shear of the plastic
  • behaviour of materials at 2-k products or with inserts
  • mechanical stability of the parts under defined loads (static FEA)

With such data you may not only crosscheck and improve your process cycle, but you will also improve the precision of your design and process planning. You will also be able to provide more precise data to your customer and ensure the start of production (SOP).
