Moldflow and Moldex3D files available for ELIX grades to select the best material for a specific application and optimise the mould design and moulding process with the help of simulations.
Nowadays to have a robust injection process, it is essential to run simulations that help you choose the best material, optimise the mould design (hot runners, cavities, gates design and location) or resolve issues that may arise during the production process.
Moldflow and Moldex3D are the most common programmes to simulate the injection moulding. The simulation covers all key points in an injection process, such as filling, packing, cooling, warpage, etc.
Material properties have a great influence on the simulation. Therefore, an extensive study must be performed to characterise each material and create a file containing the relevant information for the simulation. At ELIX, we have characterised most of our ELIX ABS, ABS/PC and PC/ABS grades in order to successfully run the simulation in both Moldflow and Moldex3D software at the early stage of the project, when the material must be selected.*
