GAIM

ADD-ON SOFTWARE FOR SIMULATION OF GAS ASSISTED INJECTION MOLDING

Product description

The add-on software Cadmould® GAIM allows the simulation of gas assisted injection molding for design of parts with gas bubble. Among others there are results available such as gas penetration depth, resulting wall thickness or breakthroughs of the gas. By this process and part can be optimized.
GAIM is part of the Cadmould® 3D-F-Expert product line that has been successfully developed in Germany for more than 25 year.

Performance Features

  • Simulates the filling and packing phase of gas assisted injection molded parts
  • Simulates filling pattern, pressure distribution, temperature, flow rates, clamping force etc.
  • Simulates the wall thickness distribution
  • Determines the resulting length of the gas bubble
  • Simulates the blow-out and secondary cavity process
  • Simulates simultaneous injection of melt and gas as well as delayed gas injection
