Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Understand the importance of material characterization for simulation
  • Understand the use of cavity pressure sensors in the evaluation of simulation results
  • Understand how part laser scanning is used to validate simulation results
  • Realize the importance of accurate process conditions and simulation setup

Description

Description

This presentation will show an example of validating the results of a Moldflow Plastic Insight warpage simulation. The topics covered will include material characterization, process setup, model accuracy, mold cavity pressure instrumentation, part shrinkage/warpage, and molded part laser scanning. An actual production mold will be used to conduct this validation study. THe mold has been instrumented with cavity pressure sensors. The molded parts have been scanned with a laser and will be compared with the results obtained from the shrinkage/warpage analysis.
