The Autodesk® Moldflow® product team and the University of Bradford have a long-standing collaboration investigating key injection molding effects such as fiber orientation, residual stresses, warpage, post-injection product performance, heat transfer, and feature replication. This class will focus on academic and industrially relevant components from the initial design phase, through production using both conventional- and micro-injection molding, to final product property assessment in terms of mechanical performance, geometric tolerances, and feature replication.
- Better predict the strength of any fiber-reinforced injection-molded part design
- Select the most appropriate analysis route for product development
- Describe best practices for in-house Moldflow analysis and subsequent finite element modeling
- Explain the validity of analysis results with a view to final product performance
