Complex Problems Solved using Moldflow CAE Simulation
The plastics injection molding process is integral to many of today’s mainstream
manufacturing processes. Industries such as telecommunications, consumer
electronics, medical devices, computers and automotive all have large, constantly
increasing demands for injection molded plastic parts. There are thousands of different
grades of commercial of plastics materials with widely varying processing
characteristics and complex part and mold designs are constantly pushing the limits
of the process. Click for video.
The production of injection molded parts is a complex process where, without the
right combination of material, part and mold design and processing parameters, a
multitude of manufacturing defects can occur, thus incurring high costs.
Plastic Flow Simulation. (moldflow) Computer aided
engineering (CAE) tools are used to simulate the manufacture of plastic parts and the
results help our engineers correct defects on the final design, before mould tool manufacture is completed.
The above factors bring a level of complexity to injection molding that makes it
necessary to use Moldflow CAE tools to predict and solve potential problems before they
occur. Additionally, the cost of tooling for injection molds can be very high and
subsequent rework increases these already high costs. All these factors combine
to make injection molding an ideal application for CAE simulation using Moldflow. Imtech Design
has been providing answers to complex moulding problems using Moldflow software
for 21 years and able to supply quick practical solutions to keep your plans
on track and within budget.
Efficient Cooling Reduces Manufacturing Costs.
Applying Moldflow Mpi software to cost reduction is our most sought after area of expertise. Wall thickness optimization and efficient mold cooling can reduce cycle times by as much as 20 percent. The payback is normally very quick and is multiplied many times over during the life of the product. Production rates are up, energy costs and machine times are significantly reduced. View our mold cooling page for more information.

Going green increases your profits.
imtech design has the experience and depth of knowledge of the Moldflow system to competently help our customers turn more plastic into profit.
The Injection Molding Process:
The injection molding
process itself is a complex mix of time, temperature and pressure variables with a
multitude of manufacturing defects that can occur without the right combination of
processing parameters and design components.
Because of these complexities, today’s plastic part and injection
mold designers are under tremendous pressure. Project timelines are being
compressed; scaling to high-volume production at times occurs literally overnight;
there is a push to ever thinner-walled molding; mold design, mold making and
manufacturing often occur across fragmented geographic locations.
