Webinar: Optimizing Rubber Molding Process through Advanced Simulations
May 11, 2023; 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET
Location: This webinar can be taken from the comfort of your home or office
– remotely from any tablet, laptop or computer.
Webinar Description: In this webinar, attendees will learn how simulating
the behavior of rubber, silicones and LSRs during injection, transfer and
compression molding process can help understand the root cause of various
molding issues like imbalances, air, uneven curing, flashing, etc.
Continuous improvements in part design, mold design and molding process are
essential for maintaining a competitive edge in the ever-expanding rubber
molding market. By using advanced CAE simulation technologies, design
phases can be shortened, molding process can be predicted and molded parts
can be optimized.
Objectives & What Will Be Covered:
* Use of simulation of rubber materials to accurately predict flow
behavior and shear-induced heating effects
* New fully automatic BLM (Boundary Layer Mesh) technology used to
create accurate mesh density in required areas
* Learn how high shear rates in thin film or pin gates and thin wall
thicknesses can cause shear-induced heat which influences viscosity,
flow behavior and flow-induced premature scorch and cure effects.
In this webinar, several real-life production examples will demonstrate how
advanced mesh technologies can be used to better predict shear-induced
material flow behavior though the transfer molding process. In addition,
how the shot size and process condition will affect flow length and vent
location will be presented.
