The comprehensive range of services from Simpatec to develop and optimise components using the latest software technologies will be showcased at Fakuma.

The highlight at Fakuma will be Moldex 3D, Simpatec's software solution for the design and optimisation of injection moulding to provide reliable and accurate results in optimising parts, tools and processes.

The new Version R16 has new features and novelties, resulting primarily from customer feedback, which is a big help to part designers and mould-makers to work efficiently and effectively whilst still achieving the best possible economic success.

According to the company, resin transfer moulding (RTM) simulation capabilities in R16 now support warp analysis and draping effects with LS-Dyna increase simulation accuracy in order to achieve high-quality RTM parts. Also, RTM pre and post-processing platforms are now more intuitive and user-friendly. They can define ply groups, boundary conditions and material groups, and also visualise the ply orientation on each layer to deliver better structural performance.

In R16, the advanced hot runner analysis has been enhanced to support the simulation of valve pin movement, allowing users to take advantage of pin positions and the velocity during flow simulation as pin movement technology prevents flow marks and other cosmetic defects.

Other enhancements include new triggers when simulating valve gates like filling the volume, timing (V/P switch) and flow front (hot runner tip), which in turn improves flexibility and accuracy in simulating the opening/closing of a valve gate. The PU Foaming function now provides a more detailed prediction of the cell size, density and final weight of the part, while simulating the mould rotation behaviour in the chemical foaming moulding process, which enables the insight of real-material behaviours to help create high-quality, polyurethane-moulded parts. The Studio platform has an interface that further streamlines workflows to optimise the overall efficiency of simulations. The model healing tool automatically repairs imported geometry before generating Boundary Layer Mesh (BLM), which greatly reduces model preparation time. New visualisation tools measure the distance between points and make it possible to display the value at a specific point. This makes it easier and more effective to compare and analyse results.

Rising demand for plastics and plastics processing

Rising demand for plastics and plastics processing

07/18/2018 - Plastics are booming. But not only is demand on the rise, quality requirements specified for materials and processing are becoming stricter as well. The Fakuma international trade fair for plastics processing will present modern solutions for high-quality plastics processing in Friedrichshafen from the 16th through the 20th of October, 2018 read...

At Fakuma, Simpatec will be in Hall A5, Booth 5003.
