2K & INSERT

EXPERT SOFTWARE FOR SIMULATION OF MULTI-COMPONENT PARTS AND PARTS WITH INSERTS

Product description

Cadmould® 3D-F 2K & Insert allows the simulation of the injection molding process of parts with inserts and multi-component parts. In combination with the module Fill the filling process can be simulated. As an addition to Warp Expert and Cool the complete process including shrinkage & warpage of the composite and the thermal behavior of the mold can be predicted.
2K & Insert is part of the Cadmould® 3D-F product family that has been successfully developed in Germany for more than 25 year. Cadmould® 3D-F uses the highly precise 3D-F method especially designed by Simcon für injection molding simulation, making Cadmould® 3D-F the superior simulation solution.

Performance Features

  • Simulates the filling and packing phase of parts with inserts and overinjected parts
  • Calculates shrinkage & warpage under consideration of the mechanical and thermal behavior of inserts and overinjected parts
  • Considers multiple inserts made of different materials, where applicable
  • Considers fibers in injected part & insert and overinjected part
  • Considers the thermal coupling of part and  insert and overinjected part
  • Allows the definition of start temperatures (e.g. constant or read in from simulation of first shot in rotary table molds)
  • Automatically identifies the contact areas
  • Automatically couples the contact surfaces of part and insert mechanically

Additional Information

Benefit

  • Cost savings by reduction of mold changes
  • Identification of causes for shrinkage and warpage for parts with inserts or multi-component parts
  • Significantly less rework of the mold until achieving an optimal part

Advantages in the Work Process

  • Determination of best approach for reducing shrinkage and warpage of multi-component parts and parts with inserts
  • Identification of the influence of inserts or overinjected component on the process
  • Prediction of the overall deformation
  • Determination of the thermal influence of the insert or the overinjected part and their thermal history

Areas of application

  • Engineering of part, mold and process for multi-component parts and parts with inserts

Type of product

  • Add-on software of the Cadmould® 3D-F Expert product line, suitable for Windows operating systems
  • To be used with Cadmould® 3D-F Fill or Warp Expert
