Together, we'll find the best solution!

With our more than 30 years’ worth of project experience in injection molding, we can support you from part and mold design all the way through to sampling and serial production.

Fight shrinkage and warpage

We determine shrinkage and warpage and work out the allowances and compensation required to achieve a dimensionally accurate part. Our specialists also determine fiber orientation during the injection process, analyze part structures and optimize part dimensioning.

Select the right machine size

Filling pressure requirements, clamping force and injection time all impact what size of machine you need. Our analysis will help you determine the right machine size for your injection molding project, and we'll optimize cycle times.

Thermally design your mold

We'll analyze (special) conformal and variothermal heating/cooling systems for you, detect and avoid hot spots, and assess the use of different insert materials.

You ask, we solve!

Whatever your challenge, we'll help you master it. Whether defining gate locations, optimizing weld lines, balancing the filling of multi-cavity molds, or finding the right cascade / sequential nozzle control – we’ll find a solution!

Three simple steps

Wondering how it works? We follow a simple three-step process!

Services chain

  1. Initial briefing: You brief us on your current design (e.g. your current  thoughts and if available, CAD designs, of your part and mold, as well as your planned injection parameter settings). We'll also discuss what you want to achieve (your objectives and constraints).
  2. We simulate and optimize for you: In this step, we run sophisticated simulations, evaluate the results, address your questions and propose solutions, based on your objectives.
  3. Jointly review results: We'll summarize our findings and perspective into a report and discuss options and the "so whats" with you. If desired, we can iterate to explore further options more deeply.

Let's get started!

You want results? We'll get you results!

Our track record shows that our customers typically achieve a 25-50% reduction in mold corrections, as a result of using our services. We can often reduce cycle times by 5-15%. Of course, your specific results will depend on your particular challenge, but we are confident that our services will be well worth your investment.

We cover both classical and special processes

With our interdisciplinary specialist knowledge, we can support you in the simulation of all classic injection molding processes: thermoplastics, elastomers, TPE, liquid silicone, thermosets and RIM, as well as targeted assistance for cascadic / sequential injection, material combinations with inserts, injection compression molding and GIT (Gas Injection Technology). We simulate in-mold lamination and in-mold decoration and optimize multi-component and sandwich injection molding processes.

Too much work?

No problem, our team will support you if you are crunched for capacity. We'll simulate and optimize for you, so you can meet that critical deadline!

Curious about simulation? 

Start by having us simulate a project for you, as a service! That way you will see how valuable plastic injection molding simulation results are, before you invest money into software, or time into training.

Material data measurement

If you are working with custom or novel materials that are not yet in CADMOULD's built-in database, we are happy to measure them for you.

Simcon will perform a full analysis and complete the measurement of any plastic within a maximum of 14 days. In this way, we can ensure a sound basis for high-precision simulation results, including for newly launched materials and materials for which no specifications are publically available.

CADMOULD also has a material database containing the specifications of more than 4000 plastics already. Users can also access a further 3500 datasets, pending case by case approval by the manufacturer.
