Description

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional mold flow analysis software provides anyone who designs or builds injection molds an accurate, easy-to-use way to optimize them. Quickly create and analyze single-cavity, multi-cavity, and family mold layouts, including sprues, runners, and gates. Being able to balance runner systems and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage, and shot size, gives you the ability to optimize feed system design and avoid costly mold rework.

These simulation tools predict how the melted plastic will behave during the injection molding process which helps prevent manufacturing defects. Save time, energy and resources with SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional for Mold Design Optimization

Developing effective injection-molded tooling, which consistently produces high quality parts, as quickly and inexpensively as possible is the ultimate goal for all moldmakers. SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional software provides additional simulation tools to SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard, for optimizing injection-molded tooling designs of all levels of complexity.

The mold flow analysis software allows moldmakers to accurately simulate the filling and packing phases to determine maximum injection pressure and machine size requirements; balance runner systems to achieve uniform filling and avoid defects; and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage, and shot size to optimize feed systems.

Accurately simulating the performance of tooling variations—such as whether to use single-cavity, multi-cavity, or family mold layouts; trying out different locations for sprues, runners, and gates; or evaluating advanced approaches such as inserts, valve gates, or two-shot or gas-assited molding—allows moldmakers to create the best tooling for the job faster and more affordably.
