New Release of Moldex3D R15.0
Reducing Pre-processing Time and Effort
CoreTech System (Moldex3D), Hsinchu, Taiwan, global provider of plastic injection molding simulation solutions, introduced the latest release of Moldex3D R15.0. This newest version offers enhanced performance, accuracy and efficiency to streamline simulation workflow and provide faster turnaround times.
One of the most significant improvements in Moldex3D R15.0 is the reduction in pre-processing time and effort. The new runner meshing technology enables automatic generation of high-resolution hexahedral meshes and offers various node types for line runner connections to better capture the intended geometric shape of the runner design and deliver more accurate predictions. Also, the extended non-matching mesh technology supports the automatic meshing of mold components to be non-matched, such as the interface between part and part insert/mold base in order to obtain accurate simulation results with minimal effort.
Streamlining Simulation Workflow
Moldex3D Studio is a fully integrated platform that streamlines all phases of the simulation workflow, from pre-processing to post-processing onto one intuitive, ribbon-style interface. The new platform complements the current Moldex3D Designer and Moldex3D Project applications and enables users to display and compare simulation results of multiple designs simultaneously to shorten the product development time.
The fully coupled process simulation is a pioneering breakthrough in Moldex3D R15.0. Users can now take advantage of the new coupling technology which can simultaneously utilize Flow/Pack/Cool/Warp solvers to obtain optimal accuracy for simulating products of complex geometric designs or advanced manufacturing process like Rapid Heat Cycle Molding (RHCM).
Moldex3D R15.0 also provides new simulation capabilities for In-mold Decoration (IMD) and Polyurethane (PU) chemical foaming process. The boundary condition application in the pre-processor of In-mold Decoration (IMD) simulation is made available the first time in commercial mold-filling analysis software to provide a quick and easy approach to meshing the decoration layers for simulation. Moreover, the “wash-out Index” feature enables designers to better predict washout of the ink of the decoration film to ensure successful decorative products
The new addition of polyurethane (PU) foaming simulation supplements Moldex3D’s capabilities for chemical foaming processes; In addition to the existing microcellular foaming analysis for thermoplastics, PU foaming simulation provides part designers an ability to check the density distribution and ensure a desirable volume-to-weight ratio of the final part. In addition, the enhancements in compression molding analysis enable a more accurate simulation for SMC materials, going from solid to molten and back to solid state, through a tighter integration between Moldex3D and LS-DYNA.
The machine interface are further expanded to include over 15 mainstream injection molding machine manufacturers to shorten the gap between the predicted and real-life parameters. The new Intelligent Simulation Lifecycle Management (iSLM) solution provides an effective management of vast volumes of simulation data, giving teams at different geographic locations within an organization one single point of entry to store, share, and re-use simulation data in a safe and centralized environment.
