The explicit analysis capabilities of Plastic Flow Simulation give you deep insight in plastic flow behaviors from macro view to micro view, such as fountain flow, inertia effect and gravity effect. With the power of Plastic Flow Simulation, you can clearly understand how melt flow progresses, accurately identify where weld surfaces are, and detect short shot problems, etc. The solution predict the melt front progression to see how the mold fills and predict3D fountain flow phenomena, inertia phenomena, cavity effects, and viscosity heating effects.
You can also predict weld line locations and air traps to minimize or eliminate them and predict the injection pressure and evaluate the requirement of clamping force. Evaluate the runner layout and type to minimize the volume of material and achieve runner balancing and optimize the gate location and size to minimize weld lines and achieve balanced filling. The solution also simulates filling process for multi-cavity molds or family molds and support multi-component molding process, including insert molding and multi-shot sequential molding.
