Systematic Approach to a Precision Polymer Gear Wheel
Optimizing a Tricky Component Geometry Using Sigmasoft Virtual Molding
A great deal has already been reported about the use of Virtual Molding software to plan and analyze injection molding processes from start to finish. However, many people are unaware that this mold can be used to optimize functionality at the design stage. MS-Schramberg, a company specializing in magnets, has a long track-record of developing precision polymer parts for the automotive industry. The following practical example of a gear wheel demonstrates how the efficiency of component optimization can be boosted through the use of simulation.
