Microcellular Injection Molding (MuCell) is a mechanical foaming process used to improve the performance/weight characteristics of an injection-molded part. This class focuses on the Microcellular Injection Molding module for Autodesk® Simulation Moldflow® Insight. We explore how well the module correlates with real-world molded samples, determine the best approach for using the module for a brand new mold, and discuss any limitations to the module.
- Describe how the MuCell molding process works
- Apply a MuCell methodology that determines weight savings
- Set up a MuCell analysis in Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Insight
- Explain how well Simulation Moldflow Insight MuCell analysis correlates with molded samples
