Design of foamed plastic parts and foam injection molding processes

CADMOULD Foam enables the simulation of foam injection molding. You can simulate all common chemical and physical foam injection molding processes, such as MuCell®, Cellmould® and Optifoam®. CADMOULD Foam computes the following results, for foam materials:

  • Filling
  • Density distribution in the part
  • Bubble distribution and size
  • Clamping forces
  • Component weight
  • Cooling times
  • Weld lines and air inclusions
  • Pressure distribution
  • Temperatures
  • Flow speeds
  • Shrinkage and warpage


Foam builds on the following functionality from other modules: filling (Fill module), holding pressure and cooling phase (Pack module), and shrinkage and warpage (Warp module).


  • Detect filling problems early on (air inclusions, weld lines, etc.), taking into account the influence of the foam on the viscosity
  • Optimize propellant and gas / mass ratio
  • Optimize part weight and density distribution
  • Anticipate and fix shrinkage and warpage issues for foam projects
  • Determine cycle times and clamping forces for foam projects
