How to Fix Plastic Warping Problems with Injection Molding Simulation

Predicting and minimizing plastic warping problems with SOLIDWORKS Plastics software, watch the on-demand webinar to learn more:

Plastic Warping Problems

While warping is a common problem with injection-molded parts, it can be complex and costly to fix quickly, especially if multiple mold reworks are required.

Design changes, material changes, adequate cooling, and windage are a few ways to fix warping problems. In this webinar, you will learn how to predict displacement from warping and how to take steps to minimize it.

In addition, this webinar demonstrates how to design and analyze mold-cooling layouts to achieve uniform temperature distribution and discusses discovery tools to help speed up the windage process.

By watching the on-demand webinar you will learn how injection-molding simulation can help you solve real-life plastics problems.

Intuitive workflow and design advice

SOLIDWORKS Plastics manufacturing software works directly on your 3D model, avoiding translation issues. You see the impact of design changes right away. Powerful and fast state-of-the-art meshing covers geometries from thin-walled parts to very thick and solid parts.

An intuitive interface leads you step by step. Guided analysis, intelligent defaults, and automated processes ensure correct setup, even if you rarely use simulation tools. The SOLIDWORKS Plastics material database contains thousands of commercial plastics and is fully customizable.

Plastics manufacturing designers get rapid feedback on how modifications to wall thickness, gate locations, materials, or geometry can effect the manufacturing of their part, while mold designers can quickly optimize multicavity and family mold layouts and feed systems—including sprues, runners, and gates.
