Description

Description

This class will discuss the requirements and workflow for simulating flow imbalances in injection molding that are caused by shear heating in branched runner systems. Validation case studies will also include the MeltFlipper design, as well as in-cavity flow imbalances that lead to race-track effects. This class will focus on the use of the Autodesk Moldflow Insight software.

Target Audience

John Beaumont

John Beaumont is president of Beaumont Technologies and program chair of the Plastics Engineering Technology program at Penn State University, Erie. He has authored several books including Successful Injection Molding and Runner & Gating Design Handbook as well as contributing the design chapters of the Injection Molding Handbook. His earlier industrial credits include positions as engineering manager for Ciba Vision Corp and technical manager for Moldflow’s US operations during the mid-80’s. Shortly after joining Penn State in 1989, he founded and directed the Plastics CAE Center for nearly 20 years. In 2001, John founded Beaumont Technologies which is the pioneer and world leader of in-mold rheological control technologies. John is an SPE Fellow and a past chair of the Injection Molding Division Board of Directors.

Franco Costa

Dr. Franco Costa is a Senior Research Leader for the Autodesk® DLS-Simulation group. Over 20 years with Autodesk Moldflow®, he has contributed to the technologies of 3-dimensional flow simulations, thermal analysis, crystallization analysis, structural analysis, final net part shape prediction and multi-physics for the plastic injection molding simulation industry. Starting with Autodesk Moldflow as a doctoral scholar, Franco has moved through roles as a research engineer, development team leader, and manager and now leads key strategic research projects for the Autodesk Simulation technology group. Franco has presented at academic conferences in the field of polymer processing, acts as a referee on international journals, and often presents overviews of Autodesk Moldflow research technology directions at Autodesk Moldflow user meetings.
