Software Software module optimises injection process conditions
The Moldex3D/DoE (design of experiments) module enables optimum process parameters to be established rapidly and systematically from existing simulation results, according to supplier SimpaTec.
The software is said to let users evaluate the appropriate settings for injection moulded parts, including runner size, gate location and optimal processing conditions.
The supplier said manual data input by the user is kept to a minimum. It further explained that the module performs independent, parallel iterations on the results using the Taguchi method. When finished, the program provides users with statements about quality and response factors and the software even suggests optimised process structures.
According to the company, module offers a number of other enhancements. It noted one improvement, the simulation of the flow behaviour of the coolant within the injection moulding simulation in true 3D by means of computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis.
