Simulation time steps

Using the right simulation strategy at the right time

Part Design S1

In the phase of the part design the points are set in the project. Geometry, function and costs are in the foreground.
The component is simulated without any influence of a tool. This means that the entire focus is on the most important points and at the same time a reference is created. This reference could be achieved with an “optimal” tool.
  • Component Design
  • Material
  • Injection position
  • Processing parameters
  • Structural-mechanical calculations under consideration of process-induced properties

Tool Design S2

Virtual verification and optimization of tool influences before “going into the steel”.
The part design is fixed, the tool is to be built. The task now is to examine the tool-specific influencing factors on the component and to design them in the best possible way.
  • Tool influences
  • Gating system
  • Temperature control system
  • Processing parameters
  • Tool materials
  • Detailed structural-mechanical analysis of the component taking into account all influencing factors

Optimization S3

Optimization of the process or elimination of residual defects after the start of production (SoP).
Production has already started in simulation level 3 (S3). With Design of Experiments, various parameters can be optimized to make the process even more efficient.
  • Process optimization after sampling
  • Optimization of existing processes
  • Error analysis (virtual verification of possible measures to eliminate residual defects)
