The SimpoeWorks software suite includes several plug-in modules fully embedded within the SolidWorks CAD software. SimpoeWorks allow SolidWorks users to simulate the complete manufacturing process of their plastic parts, from filling to warpage, without ever leaving their familiar graphic environment.
With SimpoeWorks, SolidWorks users can identify early into the design stage potential manufacturing problems, study alternative solutions, and directly assess the impact of such part modification, always in the SolidWorks graphic environment. The seamless integration of SimpoeWorks with SolidWorks really closes the loop of plastic part design and manufacturing optimization, whatever the complexity and geometry of such parts, shell parts as well as plain parts.
The SimpoeWorks software suite includes the following plug-in modules:
SimpoeWorks FILL, the base module, simulates part filling. SimpoeWorks FILL includes the powerful pre- and post treatment functionalities developed by SIMPOE, as well as the built-in material library of a few thousands references, which can be also customized in a few mouse clicks. Thanks to SIMPOE's advanced algorithms, SimpoeWorks automatically meshes the part in the blink of an eye.
SimpoeWorks FILL results include visualization of the melt front, weld lines, air traps, temperature and pressure distributions, shear rate and constraints, clamping forces, and etc.
PACK, which simulates the packing phase.
SimpoeWorks COOL, for the simulation of thermal regulation during the injection process, allowing to define the optimum process time. Channels libraries can be defined in SolidWorks for a later use with SimpoeWorks.
SimpoeWorks WARP simulates part deformation after mold opening. Deformations can be visualized in either direction, or globally, and the effects of residual constraints as well as material shrinkage displayed separately. The user can select his/her own reference system.
SimpoeWorks softwares require a SolidWorks license to run.
