Engineers and analysts depend on Moldflow® plastics injection molding simulation software to improve plastic part designs, injection mold designs, and manufacturing processes. Watch the videos to see how this powerful application unlocks opportunities to reduce cycle time.
Cooling system design
Efficient cooling systems help mold engineers balance the tradeoffs of temperature, pressure and time to meet aggressive cycle time goals.
Molding process and parameters
The injection molding process you choose dictates the factors you can examine and optimize in an effort to improve overall efficiency.
Simulation helps identify how each element of the part contributes to cycle time and how design changes will affect the final result.
Using mold inserts can improve thermal conductivity and eliminate hot spots. Simulation helps mold engineers make decisions if adding a mold insert is worth the investment.
Autodesk simulation software can help you explore different options for reducing cycle time.
