In this webinar, attendees will learn how simulating the behavior of rubber, silicones and LSRs during injection, transfer and compression molding process can help understand the root cause of various molding issues like imbalances, air, uneven curing, flashing etc. Continuous improvements in part design, mold design, and molding process are essential for maintaining a competitive edge in the ever-expanding rubber molding market. By using advanced CAE simulation technologies, design phases can be shortened, molding process can be predicted, and molded parts can be optimized.
Several real-life production examples will demonstrate how advanced mesh technologies can be used to better predict shear-induced material flow behavior though transfer molding process. In addition to that, how the shot size and process condition will affect flow length and vent location will be presented.
What Attendees Will Learn?
- Use of simulation of rubber materials to accurately predict flow behavior and shear-induced heating effects
- New fully automatic BLM (Boundary Layer Mesh) technology used to create accurate mesh density in required areas
- Learn how high shear rates in thin film or pin gates and thin wall thicknesses can cause shear-induced heat which influences viscosity, flow behavior, and flow-induced premature scorch and cure effects.
