With a more detailed understanding of shrinkage behavior, and with assistance from simulation software, mold engineers can address shrinkage earlier in the design process, save time, and improve part quality.
The mind of a mold builder never ceases to amaze me. Their creativity, ingenuity, and intelligence make them impeccable problem solvers, which is why I thought you might be interested in getting inside the mind of a fellow problem solver to learn how he came up with a very popular simulation software.
Identifying warpage is one of the easiest aspects of injection molding. Understanding the cause is a little more complicated. Here’s a close look at the sources of warpage and how to prevent it.
All mold engineers know, shrinkage is an unfortunate fact of life. All plastics shrink as they cool from viscous liquids to solids, and every type of plastic shrinks in a slightly different way. And while eliminating shrinkage is impossible, minimizing it is essential for molding parts accurately.
