CADMOULD T-Box: evolution of temperature, along a cut through mold and part

In CADMOULD T-Box, the temperature control channels of the Cool module are combined with a complete modeling of the heat transfer processes across the entire injection mold.

T-Box offers you two options:

  1. You can use it early on in development, before you have a detailed CAD mold design. In this case, CADMOULD will automatically generate a generic mold sketch, consisting of temperature control, gating system and part. 
  2. Once you have designed your mold in CAD, you can simply import it, using the CAD Importer, and use it for simulation in T-Box. This way, you can refine your temperature simulation using your fully-fleshed design.

Results

CADMOULD T-Box computes the following results in three-dimensional detail:

  • Number of cycles to the thermally stable state of the mold
  • Local variation of cavity wall temperatures during the entire cycle
  • Flow rate and pressure loss in the temperature control system
  • Temperature change of the tempering medium
  • Turbulence of the flow
  • Temperature control efficiency
  • Note: For full mold (as opposed to just cavity and cooling system) thermal simulation, also see our module T-Box

Benefits

CADMOULD T-Box enables you to better account for the thermal behavior of the mold, when you design parts and molds.

  • Determine cooling behavior for optimal cavity wall temperatures
  • Determine cooling time
  • Predict temperatures and heat flows in the mold
  • Detect and eliminate hot spots due to use of different materials, mold separation or hot runner influence
  • Reduce warpage through optimized tool inserts
  • Reduce cycle time through mold inserts adapted to the part and the process
  • Optimize existing cooling systems
  • Design molds with confidence, with a better first-time right rate and fewer costly correction loops. Significant time and cost savings, and better discussions.

Packages and modules

CADMOULD T-Box builds on top of the functionality of the Cool module, and extends it to encompass the thermal simulation of the entire mold.

T-Box can be purchased individually, or as a part of the ENGINEER-IT! or VARIMIZE-IT! packages.
