Altair Inspire Polyfoam – Simulation of Polyurethane Foam

Polyurethane foam is used in a vast array of industries and products including automotive interiors, recreational equipment, and medical devices. Altair Inspire PolyFoam is one of the most advanced solutions for polyurethane foam processing on the market. It accurately simulates the injection, foaming, and gelling processes, accounting for the important effects of chemical reactions during the process. Altair Inspire PolyFoam, provides ease-of-use and productivity of other Inspire products. The polyurethane foam processing tool from Altair allows users to check manufacturing feasibility at the design stage itself, reduce manufacturing defects and reduce cycle time by designing accurate gating locations and feed rates. With Altair Inspire PolyFoam, users can leverage the best-in-class solver technology with a fast, highly accurate solution. In addition, users can make use of the included material database for commonly used foaming and tooling materials.

Salient features of Altair Inspire PolyFoam include:

  • Create Part Design: Improve an imported 3D part design for manufacture and create an initial mold with components
  • Mold / Part Configurations: Test and optimize different configurations – like fixed, moving, or sequential gates and nozzles; foam injection directions; and mold vents, inserts and tilt – in seconds
  • Advanced Physics: Supported physics include injection, filling, foaming, curing, and cooling
  • Defect Prediction: Easily detect common manufacturing defects such as air traps, porosity, weld lines, and turn-up
  • Multi-foam Support: Simulate injection of more than one foam in any mold or process simultaneously, to aid design of comfortable products
  • Material Properties: Use existing material database properties and add your own proprietary materials securely by partnering with Altair
