SHRINKAGE AND WARPAGE SIMULATION

CADMOULD Warp computes the following results:

  • Shrinkage
  • Warpage
  • Deformation
  • Stress states (including frozen residual stress)
  • Temperatures after molding

You can combine CADMOULD Warp with its sister module Unwarp, in order to also compute mold compensations, and to get ultra-high-resolution export capability of simulated warped parts (e.g. to metrology software or to 3D printing).

Anisotropic shrinkage and warpage

If you are working with fiber-reinforced materials, fiber orientations have a meaningful effect on shrinkage and warpage. In combination with our FIBER module, WARP enables you to take such anisotropic effects into account in your warpage simulations.

Deformation of inserts

In combination with our 2K and Inserts module, Warp can also simulate the deformation of inserts during the injection process.

CADMOULD Warp Fiber orientations

This natural-fiber-reinforced glove compartment was filled with wood fibers. Correctly anticipating fiber orientation is crucial for accurate shrinkage and warpage computation.

Benefits of CADMOULD Warp

  • Precisely anticipate shrinkage and warpage
  • Solve warpage issues by optimizing process parameters, adapting the mold design or changing wall thicknesses
  • Use precise virtual measurement tools, to check compliance with dimensions
  • Reduce sampling and waste, since warpage can be optimized beforehand
  • As a result, better first-time right ratio and reduction of costly tool corrections. This results in significant time and cost savings
  • The simulation results enable you to discuss options, advantages and disadvantages with your customers and colleagues
 

CADMOULD Modules and packages

 

Packages and modules

CADMOULD Warp is an ideal complement to the modules Fill (simulation of the filling phase), Fiber (fiber orientation) and Pack (simulation of the packing and cooling phase).

You can combine Warp with Unwarp, in order to get additional export options for warped part geometries, and to derive appropriate mold compensations.

It is included in all packages starting with Warp-it! (Though technically, you do also have the option of  purchasing it separately.)
