A) Gas/Water-Assisted Injection Moulding (GAIM/WAIM)
- Moldex3D provides 3D visualization of dynamic gas and fluid penetration. In Moldex3D you can determine polymer and gas entrance positions with proper injection time and injection volume of plastic and gas. The ability to optimize skin thickness and core-out ratio distribution to predict corner effect and blow though. Support push-back analysis in the full shot process to avoid the switchover mark and material waste.
B) Powder Injection Moulding (PIM)
- Moldex3D provides freedom of shaping metal/ceramic parts. It can simulate the injection moulding stage in the process workflow. And you will be able to visualize the flow behaviour of feedstock. It provides a prediction of black lines due to phase separation of powder and binder.
C) Co-Injection Moulding (CoIM)
- In this process, Moldex3D provides visualization of dynamic filling interactions of skin and core materials. It can optimize geometry thickness and process conditions based on blow-through prediction. It can identify temperature imbalance, and pressure resistance variations, and optimize shrinkage and warpage.
D) Bi-Injection Moulding (BiiM)
Moldex3D can define two independent melt entrances and process parameters for varied materials in this process. Visualize the two-melt front advancement and predict the potential weld lines to optimize gate design.
E) Compression Moulding (CM)
- Moldex3D provides better control of the compression process. It allows for the control of the process variation after the compression to decide the charge design. Moldex3D can predict optimized compression conditions for the perfect shape of larger and intricate parts. It can simulate fiber length orientation to avoid degradation, bleeding, or flashing, and optimize product strength. Moldex3D can integrate with LS-Dyna for a more accurate compression moulding process from the solid deformation stage to the liquid filling stage.
F) Injection Compression Moulding (ICM)
- A feature in Moldex3D provides enhanced replication for the parts with microstructures. Moldex3D can visualize property changes in the compression moulding process. Moldex3D provides support with VE and optics analysis for thin and flat products to optimize residual stress, shrinkage, and warpage.
G) Foam Injection Moulding (FIM)
- In Moldex3D you can visualize the melt expansion behavior of polymer gas during the microcellular foaming process. Moldex3D also visualizes cell size and density distribution with consideration of cell nucleation and growth. There is an evaluation of the surface quality and bubble effect to reduce weight, tonnage, and shrinkage. Moldex3D has support for the core-back feature for a better understanding of gas volume fraction variation of cell distribution. For structural performance validation, Moldex3D provides cell size and density data output to Digimat.
H) Chemical Foaming Moulding (CFM)
- In Moldex3D you can get bubble property validation under the chemical response. It can predict the bubble variation and density distribution under the chemical effects. It can also ensure a desired volume-to-weight ratio of the product.
