Simulation: SOLIDWORKS Plastics
SOLIDWORKS Plastics brings easy-to-use injection molding simulation directly to the designers of plastic parts and injection molds. It simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process to predict manufacturing-related defects on parts and molds. You can quickly evaluate manufacturability while you design, to eliminate costly mold rework, improve part quality, and accelerate time to market. A Results Adviser provides troubleshooting steps and practical design advice to help diagnose and solve potential problems.
SOLIDWORKS provided 3 levels of SOLIDWORKS Plastics to best fit your companies needs:
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard
Optimizing plastic parts for manufacturability is most cost-effective when performed during the initial stages of product design. This optimization is an important step, and helps to ensure avoidance of inefficient mold designs with narrow “good parts” processing windows, resulting in high reject rates and time-to-market delays. With SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard, mold designs become more efficient, good parts processing windows widened, and times to market minimized.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional
For plastics part designers, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional enables you to optimize parts for manufacturability in the early stages of design. Easy to learn and use, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional is fully embedded within the SOLIDWORKS CAD environment so you can analyze and modify designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit, and function.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium gives anyone who designs or builds injection molds an accurate, easy-to-use way to optimize them. You can quickly create and analyze single-cavity, multi-cavity, and family mold layouts, including sprues, runners, and gates. You can even balance runner systems and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage, and shot size, enabling you to optimize feed system design and avoid costly mold rework.
