CAE Simulation Tool Moldex3D R14
Improves the Speed, Robustness and Reliability of Simulation
With Moldex3D R14 Simpatec Simulation & Technology Consulting GmbH, Aachen, Germany, presents the new release of the CAE simulation tool from CoreTech System Co., Ltd, Chupei City, Taiwan.
Moldex3D R14 provides several groundbreaking solver enhancements, which can dramatically improve the speed, robustness and reliability of simulation. These allow enterprises to get the most out of virtual simulation for injection molding and thus create core competiveness and add a substantial amount of value to their products. The new Moldex3D Boundary Layer Mesh (BLM) generator allows using fewer meshing elements which dramatically reduces the meshing time whilst keeping up the maximum wall thickness resolution. Another outstanding new development of the Designer BLM is the auto repair function which significantly reduces the effort and time needed for mesh generation. Common mesh defects such as free edges, T-connect edges and overlapping elements can now be automatically detected and fixed, thereby speeding up and simplifying the meshing process.
Fiber Orientation Prediction Enhancements
Comprehensive development activities related to Release R14 have also been set on increasing the accuracy of fiber prediction. By using a patented fiber model the new module Fiber 2.0 visualizes the 3-D fiber orientation of short and long fiber-reinforced plastics and platy fillers. To be able to assess the iteration and optimization of the component the user is able to use statements regarding fiber orientation, fiber length distribution and its concentration.
Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) is a common process to manufacture large and complex fiber-reinforced composite parts with higher strength-to-weight ratio. Moldex3D R14 employs true 3D numerical technology that can capture the full geometric details to accurately simulate the resin’s in-mold flow behavior. This allows rapidly evaluating and optimizing the design and process parameters, such as resin flow pattern and venting locations.
