Unique tetra mesher
- Patented meshing pre-processor is a built in tetra mesh generator which uses bubble mesh generation theory for optimum meshing.
Measures against cosmetic defects
- Predicts weld line and sink mark. Develops measures to review gate position and product thickness to reduce the number of mould modifications and trials
- Analyzes main factors of warpage and develops countermeasures
- Derives product shape and gate location to reduce warpage
Optimization for lightweight design
- Optimizes moulding conditions with existing machines by using results of filling patterns and pressure
Cycle time optimization
- Predicts product temperature and mould temperature with three-dimensional cooling channel
- Checks the temperature distribution and considers the appropriate cooling channel layout and product thickness.
Evaluation of quality and reliability for moulded product
- Predicts deformation due to residual stress and thermal influence
- Evaluates product quality through heating techniques such as annealing, painting, heat cycle testing
Various optimization functions
- Proposes parameters such as optimum gate position and product wall thickness and improves the efficiency of analysis work
Evaluation of strength
- Predicts nonlinear properties from analysis results of fiber orientation
- Challenges marginal design by conducting highly accurate strength evaluation in combination with structure analysis
Direct Fiber Simulations (DFS)
- Forecasts bending and breaking of reinforcing fiber, fiber length, density distribution
- Performs high accuracy and strength evaluation of warp deformation analysis
Unique extensional functions of 3DTIMONTM
- AMDESS for 3DTIMONTM enables automatic design optimization. For example, it can find out optimum shape and thickness to reduce warpage, optimum gate position to shift the weld position etc.
- Ejector Pin Evaluation Tools – Buckling Risk / Buckling Load
The system based on the concept of fast & easy is able to quickly check the analysis results by setting analysis conditions according to workflow.
- Thermosetting resin analysis - 3DTIMONTM-ReactiveMOLD
Corresponds to injection moulding and transfer moulding to predict filling, fiber orientation, and warping for use in automotive electronics
- Compression moulding analysis - 3DTIMONTM-CompositePRESS
