We’re back for the third installment of this webinar series exploring real-life plastics problems and how to solve them using injection molding simulation. A common problem with injection molded part is warping. While common, it can be a complex and costly problem to fix quickly, especially if multiple mold reworks are required. Design changes, material change, adequate cooling, and windage are a few ways to fix warping problems. In this webinar, we will show how to predict displacement from warping and steps to minimize it.

In addition, we will design and analyze mold cooling layouts to achieve uniform temperature distribution and, finally, discovery tools to help with speed up the windage process. In the first webinar, we looked into early-stage process concerns such as design changes, gate location, short shots, sinks marks, weld lines, and air traps.

In the second webinar, we discovered more advanced tools to minimize defects. Tools such as venting analysis, multi-cavity, runner balancing, shrinkage during the pack/hold stage. More importantly, we were able to precisely predict the full cycle time of the injection molding process.
