SOLIDWORKS Plastics is used for both part designers and mold designers. In this blog, you can get information on how this technology can help in creating and optimizing parts, single and multi cavity and family mold layouts.

Steps involved in testing your Plastic Parts:
SOLIDWORKS Plastics contains vast material and polymer database with multiple classification among the materials. Each and every class of material contains in built temperature curves, pressure curves etc. Gate location involves the entry point for the melted plastic flow. Multiple Gate location can also be provided based on the feasibility and complexity of the part.
Fill time Plot represents the time taken to fill the plastic component. Using this plot, we can also find whether the part gets fully filled. The cooling time based on the temperature parameters can also be analyzed and the approximate time to cool the part can be predicted in the initial validation stage. The part validation also involves the prediction of Air Traps, Sink Marks and Weld Lines. Each and every result can be exported and visualized as a document and in an animated video format.
