Using simulation for plastic injection molding can give you the foresight to see issues before the tool steel is cut. Simulating design changes before moving steel can give you confidence in your decision making.
Simulation is also a great tool to answer questions like…
Simulation is the Smarter Solution
Producing a physical mold takes time.
Making a mold that doesn’t work wastes time. Test and tweak a virtual version of your mold BEFORE you lose time producing something that doesn’t work.
Producing a physical mold is expensive.
Don’t gamble on a mold design that MIGHT work when you can run simulations that PROVE the design works before investing in mold production.
Plastic Injection Mold Simulation Services
Bluebill Engineering Services offers the following simulation services:
Plastic Injection Mold Filling Simulation
When you eliminate filling issues with your mold process, scrap, mold rework costs, and time are reduced. Your product is quicker to market, and your customers are happy.
Plastic Injection Mold Packing Simulation
Having a capacity strategy nailed down before the steel is even cut, allows for better planning. You can have confidence in matching the correct machine size to the part to be molded with a professional packing simulation.
Plastic Injection Mold Warping Simulation
Minimize the very costly and time-consuming “after-the-fact” adjustment processes and tooling of steel, to remove warp from a part, with plastic injection mold warping simulation.
Plastic Injection Mold Cooling Simulation
With professional Plastic Injection Mold Cooling Simulation, you can have confidence that when the mold design is complete, accurate placement of cooling channels is high and there is no rework of the mold to adjust for insufficient and inaccurate cooling.
The Problem “What is a sink mark?” “Where will the sink marks be?” Sink marks on plastic parts are in indentation in the surface, caused by the plastic shrinking and “pulling” the surface inward. Visually this causes a “low spot” or “depression” or “valley” in a...
The Problem “Am I going to get trapped air in the mold?” “Where will the air traps be?” “Air traps” are areas in the mold where air cannot escape during the molding process. Since the mold halves are designed one for one, meaning the mold halves touch, the air that...
The Problem “Where will the weld lines be?” “What is a meld line?” “Weld lines” is term that is used when two plastic flow fronts come together. Typically, this happens around screw bosses, differential thicknesses in part geometry and multiple gate locations in a...
