SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional

Multi-Cavity Mold Design Simulation Software

Advanced Simulation Tools for Multi-Cavity Mold Designs

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional gives the user the ability to create runner channel design based on sketch lines or 3D modeled runner systems such as a filled hot runner, the designer can simulate multi-cavity layouts with runner systems. The runner balancing tool is very useful to help optimize the sprue, runner channel, and gate sizes to ensure even flow and injection pressures between the mold cavities. The professional package adds the packing phase to the analysis providing results such as a part mass / time plot, part density, and residual stress.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional

Includes all the Tools of SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard but with the addition of advanced tools to ensure a consistent processing and testing window before tool machining.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional Features

Symmetry Analysis
Saves computing time by simulating a single cavity in a symmetric mold layout.

Packing Phase (2nd Stage Injection)
Simulates the second step in the injection molding cycle. Evaluate material freezing, hot spots, gate freeze, and cycle time.

Runner Balancing
Runs through iterations of runner parameters to balance filling time and pressures in a family mold layout.

Runner Design Wizard
Automates creation of the sprues, runners, and gates for the mold layout.

Sprues and Runners
Can be created based on sketches or 3D modeled bodies, simulation will show the impact on fill time and pressure drop.

Hot and Cold Runners
Have the option to specify if the runner system stays filled with melted polymer (hot runner manifold system) or has a cold runner that fills and solidifies with each cycle.

Multi-cavity Molds
Simulates multiple cavities of the same part.

Family Molds
Simulates cavities of different parts in the same mold.

Mold Inserts
Can see the impact of mold inserts on the analysis. Can specify difference mold insert material to see effect on cooling.

Volumetric Shrinkage
Shows the scale of volumetric shrinkage at the end of the fill and packing phases.

Density at End of Pack
Displays the material density at post filling end. Analyzes the packing phase quality.

Allows the export of part geometry in STL or NASTRAN formats.
