The combination of an injection moulding simulation (engl.: mould flow) of the actual state, a consideration of the simulation of a temperature control of the later mould, the component optimisation and the subsequent simulation of the optimised state with regard to component and temperature control not only enables very precise simulation and optimisation results. The fact that the most important influencing variables can be included in the development at the product development stage means that the first samples can already be produced with good parts more and more frequently.
Since the geometric component optimizations generally also enable a significantly shorter cycle, the previous additional effort pays off several times over. The time to the finished product is significantly reduced, quality is improved and the unit price is also lower due to a better process window with a shorter cycle time.
After the component optimisation has been carried out, the possible cold and holding pressure stresses, and thus the distortion, are reduced. Now, if necessary, a negative correction of the component can also be made. We create these in compliance with the tangential contour transitions. This manipulated geometry is then introduced into the tool so that distortion is reduced to a minimum.
