Injection molding simulation software designed to boost productivity

The newest iteration of plastic injection molding software from Transvalor S.A. (Mourns, France) includes several new features designed to improve engineering productivity and efficiency. In particular, Rem3D 5.0 combines parallel mesh generation technology, an intuitive user interface and realistic thermal conditions to provide an easy-to-use predictive tool for injection molding simulations, says the company. It showcased its product at the recent Fakuma trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Other system highlights include:

  • The addition of automatic anisotropic adaptive (AAA) meshing technology, which only requires the user to input geometry and process parameters to quickly run simulations. Thanks to AAA meshing, coupled mold and part thermal resolutions and an accurate filling model, Rem3D 5.0 predicts the core thickness with a realistic smooth-skin effect in gas- or water-assist injection molding processes.

  • Native 3D design has been integrated to allow in-use property predictions and accommodate part complexity. Even when significant thickness variations are present, relevant predictive data is computed faster than in previous versions.

  • Injection and expansion processes are simulated simultaneously, allowing for optimal vent and insert design and determination of density distribution to optimize robustness of the finished part. The final part can be exported in an .stl file for further modeling.

  • Injection molding processes with multiple fluids can be simulated, and the software also allows the simulation of sequential co-injection processes for thermoplastics and thermosets. Predictive material distribution results can be displayed in grouped or dissociated models.

Rem3D was developed in collaboration with the prestigious CEMEF Mines ParisTech laboratory.
