Many parts manufacturers think of mold flow analysis as just another box to check in the process of developing a new plastic part. They rely on the software to generate and provide insights, or potentially, confirmation bias. However, without experienced professionals interpreting the data and using it to drive design choices, it has limited value. …Read More
All the high-tech tools in the world are useless – unless you take an enlightened approach to apply them to improve your products, processes and how you anticipate and solve problems. A case in point is mold flow analysis (MFA).Read More
Mold flow analysis (MFA) is a process whereby the injection cycle is simulated, and the results are analyzed using specialized software. A vitally important step in any large-scale manufacturing process, mold flow analysis can help the manufacturer and molder to optimize the design of the part and mold, improve part quality and enable cost-effective fabrication.…Read More
When taking on a tooling project, no detail can be overlooked. With the numerous variables that can impact production, you should expect some hiccups. That is why mold flow analysis is such a crucial component of production. Let’s dive into this idea and see how to manage the risks associated with designing a new mold.Read More
Mold flow analysis can be essential to ensure that a mold is capable of producing the strongest and most consistent parts. Is mold flow a necessary step of the process, or is it just extra time and effort?Read More
Creating a high performing mold is a vital part of the injection molding process, but can be a challenging. While one might think liquid plastic simply takes on the shape of the mold it’s injected into, a strong initial design and innovative techniques are vital to consistent part production.Read More
