FEM simulation with surface contact and multi-pass adaptive calculation

Technolution’s FEM simulation helps our clients to a fast and efficient change of design up to product launch

Our customer had set parameters for the product experimentally by DOE, but the product still did not pass the verification test satisfactorily.

By using nonlinear multi-pass adaptive FEM calculations with surface contact, Technolution created a model to calculate a control sequence with Creo Simulate as simulation model. It was possible to propose a new geometry that could be contained within the physical limitations and meet the requirements of the operating force.

The simulation led to relatively modest changes in the injection molding tool, and the implementation of the design change in the already tight schedule was successful.
