SOLIDWORKS Plastics – Cooling Analysis Basics

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

If you are in the business of designing plastic parts, you are probably well aware of the multistep injection molding process. SOLIDWORKS Plastics can simulate this process. Three different offerings (Standard – Professional – Premium) allow increasing levels of functionality. All of them can simulate the plastic injection flow stage; Plastics Professional adds the pack stage, and other capabilities and Plastics Premium includes the calculations related to the cool and warp stages. One thing you might not know about this simulation […]

SimpoeWorks for plastic injection simulation

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

SimpoeWorks is a great plastic injection simulation solution fully embeded into SOLIDWORKS graphic user environment. SimpoeWorks enables SOLIDWORKS users to simulate complete manufacturing process of their plastic parts, from filling to warpage. There are four modules in  SimpoeWorks SimpoeWorks FILL, simulates part filling. Here users can visualize melt front, air traps, temperature and pressure distributions, shear rate, clamping forces. Also optimize gate locations. SimpoeWorks PACK helps identify sink mark locations, optimize part manufactuing time and residual constraints. SimpoeWorks COOL simulates […]
