BUILT-IN INJECTION MOLDING SIMULATION FOR SOLIDWORKS

Go beyond the existing mold design capabilities available within SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD. SOLIDWORKS Plastics was created specifically for plastic part and injection mold designers, providing you with the tools you need to easily identify potential manufacturing problems earlier in your design process. This easy-to-use solution helps you to simulate and predict mold filling patterns, prevent product defects, and reduce your costs and product development timelines – all directly in your familiar SOLIDWORKS interface.

With SOLIDWORKS Plastics, you can be confident in your part design before ever cutting steel for the mold.

HOW CAN HAWK RIDGE SYSTEMS HELP?

Since SOLIDWORKS Plastics was first introduced in 2012, Hawk Ridge Systems has helped many companies like yours add injection molding simulation into their part and mold design processes.

  • We helped an established contractor for machined plastic parts implement injection molding services complete with mold filling simulation and optimization.
  • We partnered with a specialty tool and manufacturing company to perform injection molding simulation of a 24-inch plastic pipe cap using SOLIDWORKS Plastics.
  • Our analysis consulting team performed a detailed analysis of a complete injection molding cycle to evaluate warpage in a medical implant.
