Saving Material Without Performance Loss
 
Challenge
  • Reducing the weight without loss of usability and strength
  • Optimizing the manufacturing process
 

Solution

  • Injection molding simulation to optimize the part production and to create the fiber orientation for the new designed part
  • Taking into account these results to perform most realistic mechanical simulation

 

Results

  • Significant material and cost savings due to optimized geometry
  • Faster and more economic production process

Challenge

  • Realistic material behavior of injection molded fiber-reinforced plastics
  • Reduce weight by metal replacement

Solution

  • Converse mapping capabilities to assign fiber orientation to the mechanical model
  • Converse material database for direction dependent thermo-mechanical material properties

Results

  • More realistic simulation of parts compared to isotropic approaches
  • Consideration of injection molding process on the mechanical part behavior
