Wittmann Battenfeld is exploring integration of Moldex 3D LSR molding simulation with its injection machine controls.

Wittmann Battenfeld and CoreTech System Co. of Taiwan, provider of Moldex 3D injection molding simulation software, have agreed to collaborate on advancing the role of simulation in LSR injection molding. CoreTech has installed a Wittmann Battenfeld SmartPower 90 press with an LSR dosing system from Elmet. Goals of the joint effort include validating simulation predictions of LSR molding and exploring the possibility of incorporating LSR molding simulation on the machine’s Unilog B8 controller. Wittmann Battenfeld is also working on integrating thermoplastic flow simulation with its machine controller, based on software from Simcon of Germany.


  • How to Reduce Sinks

    Modifications to the common core pin can be a simple solution, but don’t expect all resins to behave the same. Gas assist is also worth a try.

  • How to Stop Flash

    Flashing of a part can occur for several reasons—from variations in the process or material to tooling trouble.

  • Calculate Shot Size Vs. Barrel Capacity

    It may seem like a dull topic, but it will overcome the emotional experience that follows when you put a new mold into a machine and you find out there is not enough barrel capacity to make a full shot.
