Software and Consulting
We provide flexible and fast-response injection molding simulation consulting services to clients without the time, skills or resources in-house – from single day plastic design assessment to long-term product and mold development projects. Our services are typically employed to screen for and detect voids & sink marks, gas traps and weld lines with the objective to optimize fill patterns.
As a Moldex3D value-added reseller, we supply the automotive, medical, consumer, packaging and other industries involved in designing and/or manufacturing plastic products with leading simulation software. In addition, we can model plastic blow molding and extrusion manufacturing operations through complementary ANSYS Polyflow simulation tools.
We are internationally recognised through our Moldex3D Expert Certification.
We have experience in a diverse range of polymers from commodity plastics such as PP and ABS through to fibre-reinforced Polyamides, PEEK and PPS. We can simulate over 8000 grades subjected to the following processes:
- Thermoplastics Injection Molding
- Thermoplastics Injection Compression Molding and Overmolding
- Gas-assisted Injection Molding
- Reactive Molding
- Reactive Compression Molding
- Reactive Injection-Compression Molding
- Microchip and Underfill Encapsulation
- Insert molding/2K – Multi-Component Molding (MCM)
- Injection compression Molding
- Resin Transfer Molding
- Foam Injection Molding
- Powder Injection Molding
- IC Packaging
- PU Chemical Foaming Molding
- Conformal Cooling
- Investment Casting
Design for Manufacture
Together with our Structural Analysis capabilities, we help ensure that any plastic component is Designed for Manufacture, balancing product performance in terms of strength, rigidity and fatigue life with minimum cost production. For fibre-reinforced plastics, our software can incorporate inhomogneous and directional material properties developed during the molding process within design simulation studies of parts.
