CASCADIC

ADD-ON SOFTWARE FOR SIMULATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF NOZZLE CONTROL FOR CASCADIC INJECTION MOLDING

Product description

The module Cadmould 3D-F Cascadic Injection provides the possibility to open and close needle valve nozzles during the injection molding process. By that the design of the nozzle control can already be done in simulation. Nozzles can be controlled based on time, pressure dependant or when the melt reaches predefined sensors in the mold.
Cascadic 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 opening and closing of needle valve nozzles
  • Uses variable criteria for switching depending on
    • time
    • predefined pressure
    • control points in the cavity
  • Determines the filling pattern resulting from the nozzle control
  • Simulates clamping force as a result of the nozzle control
  • Calculates shrinkage and warpage as a result of the nozzle control
