Potholder optimized for LSR injection molding
Resource-efficient benchmarking of injection concepts through virtual optimization
The flow behavior of polymer materials in a cavity depends on numerous factors, and therefore is difficult to predict. Modern simulation technologies support mold and process design by calculating and comparing different injection concepts and ranking them by selected criteria. In this approach, no material resources are wasted while the required effort and time remain minimal. In the case of a highly complex LSR part, mold design and injection concept were optimized upfront, so high-quality parts were successfully produced in the first acceptance run.
