Moldflow Insight software and the University of Bradford have a long-standing collaboration investigating key injection moulding effects such as fiber orientation, residual stresses, warpage, post-injection product performance, heat transfer, and feature replication in both standard injection moulding and micro-moulding processes. This presentation builds on the Autodesk University 2011 and 2013 classes and will cover the experimental and computational analysis of short- and long-fiber reinforced components during injection moulding, thermal investigations of the micro-moulding process, and an outline of future collaborative work between University of Bradford and Moldflow Insight software.
