ADD-ON SOFTWARE FOR 3D THERMAL ANALYSIS OF A MOLD SKETCH AT THE START OF MOLD DEVELOPMENT
THE EXPERT SOFTWARE TO MINIMIZE CYCLE TIME

Product Description

3D T-Box is an add-on injection molding simulation software for Fill, Warp Expert and Cool of the Cadmould® 3D-F Expert product line. 3D T-Box combines the advantages of the flexible heating/cooling channel design of Cadmould® 3D-F Cool with a complete 3D simulation of all heat transfer processes within the injection mold. 3D T-Box automatically generates a mold sketch and thus can be used already at the start of mold development.

Thermische 3D-Simulation vom Bauteil in der T-Box

Performance Features

  • Automatically generates a mold sketch from heating/cooling system, part and runner system
  • Simulates the distribution of temperature and heat flow in the mold sketch in detail
  • Simulates conventional, conformal and impulse cooling systems, heating elements, and inductive heating
  • Calculates the flow in heating /cooling channels (temperature increase of coolant, pressure loss, checking the turbulence etc.)
  • Simulates with a multi-cycle simulation transient up to a thermally stable state
  • Simulates the influence of hot runners on mold and part
  • Simulates the heat exchange between mold and machine, as well as with the ambience
  • Displays results as animation, in 3D cuts and as iso-surfaces

Additional Information
