Achieve more accurate non-linear simulation. Helius PFA maps manufacturing data from Moldflow injection molding software to structural FEA meshes for multiple parts in a structural assembly.
Multiple Modlflow studies can be leveraged to provide manufacturing data for large structural assemblies of plastic components. Helius PFA lets you:
Improve the simulation accuracy of injection molded parts by importing material data and fiber orientations through the Advanced Material Exchange. Transfer as-manufactured simulation data from Moldflow plastic injection molding simulation software to your structural model. Then, use this data to predict material nonlinearity due to plastic deformation and matrix cracking, and conduct a more accurate structural simulation early in the design cycle.
Use the Advanced Material Exchange to incorporate the effects of manufacturing into your structural simulation. Transfer residual strains from Autodesk Moldflow to include possible warpage from the injection molding process.
Use Advanced Material Exchange with multiple Moldflow materials, including fiber-filled plastics and non-filled plastics. Incorporate the material properties from the Moldflow database and the results of the manufacturing process into your structural simulation by transferring Moldflow results to your structural FEA code.
