Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Understand the importance of fiber orientation for mechanical analysis
  • Learn how to create a link between Moldflow and Ansys for coupled simulations using Helius
  • Learn the importance of material properties for a closer-to-reality simulation
  • Understand how to use rheology-structural results to optimize part design

Description

Description

The fiber orientation as a result of the injection molding process have a high impact on the mechanical behavior that the manufactured product will have. Using different material models will help in understanding the latest improvements on the fiber oreination prediction, and considerations that are needed in order to have a better performance. By having the link between rheology and structural simulations, the material properties can be related with the fiber orientation in order to have a mechanical model that can be closer to reality. Autodesk Helius makes this link and helps in bringing the reality to simulation.

Silvestre Cano is a mechanical engineer with 10 years of experience. He currently leads the Rheology Community in Schneider Electric.

Stefan Kuehne

My currently role is Premium Services Specialist with a focus on the Autodesk Simulation products mainly looking for Moldflow and Helius. I started using Moldflow 1994 during that time I was a student and worked for half a year at Bayer. For my Diploma thesis the content was also MOLDFLOW. The Diploma thesis had the headline:

"Verification of an analysis software for the prediction of shrinkage and warpage for fiber filled and non-fiber filled materials including a comparison of real parts"

1995 I started working for Moldflow in Germany as an application engineer later on I was Training and Support Manager.
