Mold-filling analysis is the right direction to go, but if you want to arrive at your destination—good parts and an efficient process—you’ll need to pay attention to all the details and select an experienced professional to do the analysis. ArticlePublished: 6/27/2011
While mold-filling simulation is a very common tool for predicting the fill patterns of an injection mold, in our judgment there is not yet a commercially available, satisfactory filling simulation for microcellular foam molding. ArticlePublished: 12/23/2010
This molder's trial parts showed visible flaws that made them unusable. Simple changes in tooling, processing, or materials couldn't fix it. But flow simulation provided an answer that worked right off the bat.
