CoreTech System Co., Ltd. (Moldex3D), Taiwan, has released Moldex3D R17, its injection moulding simulation solution. According to the company, Moldex3D R17 will allow users to consider the dynamic response of an injection moulding machine to ensure that the optimised processing conditions obtained from the analysis can be directly applied on the shop floor, bridging the gap between simulation and manufacturing.
Additionally, the barrel compression functionality provides a realistic prediction of material behaviours by simulating the actual compression behaviour of melts inside the barrel and the nozzle, which allows engineers to take into account the effect of material compressibility when injecting into the cavity – generating a more accurate injection pressure prediction.
Venny Yang, President of CoreTech System, stated, “The release of R17 marks a major milestone for Moldex3D. The more powerful physical-virtual integration capability and more timely design insights will largely benefit designers, tool makers and CAE engineers to help them further advance smart manufacturing capabilities and ultimately enhance their global competitiveness.”
