The Best Tool for LSR Simulation

In the liquid silicone rubber (LSR) industry, there are several key areas directly affecting the productivity of your mold:

  • Positioning, number and power of the heating cartridges
  • Identification of cold spots and optimization of heating time
  • Checking the efficiency of the insulation between cold runner and hot mold
  • Temperature sensor positioning

 

 

Your requirements concerning task and optimization are constantly increasing and SIGMASOFT® offers you the support you need. Create simple or complex injection molding simulations of liquid silicones with the help of Virtual Molding technology. Simulate the filling and curing process, virtually optimize your production processes and take a look at your mold before it is even built. Thus, you create a reliable basis for your decisions during the development process.

SIGMASOFT® VIRTUAL MOLDING SUPPORTS SOLVING COMPLEX CHALLENGES IN INJECTION MOLDING FROM DESIGN TO PROCESSING.

 

 

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM SIGMASOFT®lsr:

  • Predict cavity filling, flow front propagation, fountain flow, block shear flow, jetting effects and shear gradients
  • Calculate cold runner and clamping force, gravity effects, very thick-walled parts and packing phase
  • Simulate cascade and multi-component injection molding
  • Calculate curing stage and curing during the filling phase and low-viscosity flow behavior
  • Check influence of (preheated) inserts on mold filling and curing reaction
  • Calculate curing time and rate everywhere in the part
  • Consider curing-dependent viscosity and exothermic curing reaction
  • Analyze post-curing outside the mold
  • Predict the position of air pockets and tempering processes

 

VIRTUAL MOLDING INSTEAD OF JUST SIMULATION:
THE MOLD MAKES THE DIFFERENCE!

Using the Virtual Molding technology, you can establish the same process conditions as on your machine and run several production cycles virtually one after the other. You will accelerate the development process and achieve the required part quality from the first shot. Furthermore, you are able to start virtual series production even before your mold is built.Intelligent automatic meshing algorithms allow you to mesh an entire mold in less than five minutes, and mesh repairs of any kind belong to the past. Take a look at your mold while it is running.
