Wittmann Battenfeld Partners with Moldex 3D on LSR Injection Molding Simulation
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.
A bad mold can cripple a process; learn what areas should be considered as a tool is evaluated and reviewed.
Autodesk Inc., San Rafael, Calif., has just made available a new version of its Moldflow Insight software that takes time-consuming meshing and analysis functions off your desktop and performs them at a remote data center accessed via the Internet.
It’s not just for successful mold filling and cooling. Simulation can help predict and overcome cosmetic defects in molded parts.
