Foam

ADD-ON SOFTWARE FOR THE ENGINEERING OF FOAM INJECTION MOLDED PARTS
EXPERT SOFTWARE FOR SIMULATION OF FOAM INJECTION MOLDING

Product Description

Foam is an add-on software for the modules Fill or Warp Expert. Foam is capable of simulating any foam injection molding process with thermoplastic materials.
Foam is part of the Cadmould® 3D-F-Expert product line 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 for injection molding simulation, making Cadmould® 3D-F the superior simulation solution.

Performance Features

  • Simulates the expansion of the blowing agent during foaming
  • Simulates all currently available foam injection molding processes (MuCell®, Optifoam® etc.)
  • Simulates shrinkage and warpage
  • Simulates parts with both high and low degree of foaming
  • Simulates the bubble growth in the melt
  • Calculates the local change of density and volume
  • Considers the influence of the foam on the viscosity during filling
  • Illustrates results by animation and 3D cuts
