Molded Part Validation & Injection Molding Simulation
NX offers a range of tools that help you assess the moldability of plastic parts. These validation and mold flow analysis tools are intended for use by designers in the early stages of product development, and are fully integrated with NX design functions.
You can easily setup and perform analyses with only a few clicks. The moldability validation and flow analysis tools enable you to identify and correct potential injection molding problems as you design the product. The mold filling simulation tools feature automatic meshing and support parallel computing to deliver results faster.
The production of injection molded parts is a complex process where, without the right combination of material, part and mold design and processing parameters, a multitude of manufacturing defects can occur, thus incurring high costs.
Computer aided engineering (CAE) tools are used to simulate the manufacture of plastic parts and the results help our engineers correct defects on the final design, before mould tool manufacture is completed.
The above factors bring a level of complexity to injection molding that makes it necessary to use Moldflow CAE tools to predict and solve potential problems before they occur. Additionally, the cost of tooling for injection molds can be very high and subsequent rework increases these already high costs. All these factors combine to make injection molding an ideal application for CAE simulation.
