SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium users can design and analyze simple or complex mold cooling line layouts, optimize cooling system design to minimize cycle times and decrease manufacturing costs and optimize part and mold design, material selection and processing parameters to reduce or eliminate molded part warpage.
SOLIDWORKS PLASTICS PREMIUM INCLUDES:
(STANDARD & PRO CAPABILITIES INCLUDED)
Designers and engineers can perform a warpage analysis to detect issues caused by incorrect processing parameters, mold issue, part design issue, & poor material selection before molds are created.
COOLING LINE ANALYSIS
Optimize cooling channel design for your part with location, size, and type to ensure that melt freezes uniformly inside the mold.
Inject different polymers into a single mold to combine different polymer properties such as color, feel, and mechanical properties while reducing costs.
Analyze the effects of fiber orientation on material properties during the injection molding process to see how it will impact the mechanical performance of your design.
Users can implement the process of multi-shot molding to inject different materials into different locations on the same mold to save costs and improve the durability of the mold.
Users can utilize insert overmolding to improve product resilience and appearance. It is also ideal for projects with complex final molded component designs.
