Molding Processes

Compression Molding_CMCompression Molding (CM) 

simulates the compression molding process in which the polymer is squeezed into a preheated mold cavity. Moldex3D helps users check potential defects resulted from heat and pressure, decide appropriate materials, and optimize process conditions.

Injection Compression Molding_ICMInjection Compression Molding (ICM)

Simulates the injection compression molding process, generally applied to thin and flat plastics, such as light guide plates or compact discs. Users can observe the compression process over time in cavity and evaluate material properties and process conditions.

Powder Injection Compression MoldingPowder Injection Molding (PIM)

visualizes metal or ceramic molding process. Users can observe the fluid flow behavior of the feedstock, consisted of powder and binder, and predict potential defects. You also can evaluate the effects of shear rate and optimize process conditions.

Gas-Assisted Injection Molding (GAIM)Gas-Assisted Injection Molding (GAIM)

visualizes the melt flow behavior when gas is injected into the mold cavity through the melt entrance or other specific gas entrance. Users can predict typical GAIM issues, such as fingering effect, blow-through, or corner effect.

Water-Assisted InjectionWater-Assisted Injection Molding (WAIM)

visualizes the dynamics of water-assisted injection molding process for hollow plastics. With the visualization of fluid penetration behavior inside the mold cavity, users can define the overflow region and optimize process conditions.
