CADMOULD Pack extends the simulation to the packing phase of plastic injection molding. This lays an important foundation for solving shrinkage and warpage issues, as well as improving cycle times and optimizing clamping forces.
CADMOULD Pack enables you to visualize the evolution of frozen layer thickness across your packing phase.
CADMOULD Pack Results
CADMOULD Pack computes the following results for the packing phase of plastic injection molding:
- Pressure distribution
- Clamping forces
- Surface layer thickness
- Melt core in cross-section
- Volume shrinkage
- Thickness shrinkage / sink marks
- Cooling time and shot volume, incorporating the influence of the packing phase
Benefits of using CADMOULD Pack
- Optimally specify packing pressure, clamping force, and cooling phase parameters
- Reliably determine freezing, sealing and demolding times
- Achieve uniform volume shrinkage distribution over the molded part
- Avoid sink marks
- Reduce part warpage through optimized shrinkage compensation (calculation of shrinkage and distortion results also requires the Warp module)
- Analyze temperatures and pressures to ensure reliable demolding
- Determine key data for part and tool costing by determining an optimized packing pressure and cooling phase with the software
- Optimize existing processes to achieve shorter cycle times, or in order to enable switching to a different injection molding machine
Simulating the packing phase is crucial if you want to anticipate sink marks.

Packages and modules...
CADMOULD Pack builds on top of CADMOULD Fill (filling simulation). Ideally, it is combined with CADMOULD Cool, Fiber and Warp, so that you can simulate shrinkage and warpage.
CADMOULD Pack is included in all packages starting with Warp-it! (Though technically, you do also have the option of purchasing or renting it separately.)
