What Is Plastic Flow and What Is this process For?
Optimizing gates and ram speed profile
Purpose of this example
This example illustrates various aspects of the power of CAE software for the plastics industry, and how such software can be strategically applied. It shows how to put into practice many of the concepts that are discussed in detail in the Design and Processing > Physics topics. These topics include injection pressure, filling pattern, melt-front area and melt-front velocity, runner design and balancing, and gate design.
Description of this example
The example steps through the design considerations for precision molded plastics in a concurrent engineering environment. It illustrates the role of computer simulation at each iterative step in the process. […]
