An analysis sequence is a predefined series of analyses.
Use these dialogs to edit the model or workspace properties.
Analysis sequence icons are displayed in the Study Tasks pane.
The use of an appropriate analysis technology helps to ensure that analysis results are accurate.
The Gate Location analysis is used to recommend injection locations for the part. This analysis works for all analysis technologies and is used as a preliminary input for a full analysis.
The Fill analysis predicts the thermoplastic polymer flow inside the mold in the filling phase. This analysis is often run as the first part of a Fill+Pack analysis sequence.
Pack analysis predicts the thermoplastic polymer flow inside the mold in the packing phase. This analysis is run as the second part of a Fill+Pack analysis sequence and can be used to determine whether a cavity will be completely filled.
The Runner Balance Analysis is used to determine the optimum volume for the sections of the runner system. This analysis ensures that the part fills evenly and there is an acceptable pressure magnitude in the cavity, minimizing runner volume.
The Fiber orientation Fill+Pack analysis is used to predict the behavior of composite materials. While injection-molded fiber-reinforced thermoplastics constitute a major commercial application of fiber composite (a filler within a polymer matrix) materials, the modeling of the process is more complex than in other flow applications.
For injection molding applications using semi-crystalline thermoplastics materials, accounting for the flow-induced crystallization and morphological changes of these materials can improve the prediction accuracy of cavity pressure decay and the mechanical properties of the molded parts, and subsequent shrinkage and warpage predictions.
Process Optimization analyses are used to determine optimum ram speed and packing pressure profiles so that parts produced are of the highest quality.
The Molding Window analysis is used to calculate the best preliminary process settings for your study.
Stress analyses are used to identify structural related problems, typically with the strength, stiffness, and life expectancy of plastic products.
Shrink analysis enables you to determine an appropriate shrinkage allowance to use to cut the mold taking into account the shrinkage characteristics of the material being used to mold the part and the molding conditions.
A Warp analysis is used to diagnose the cause of warping and recommend a solution, such as gate location changes, design parameter changes, or reduction of wall thickness variations.
Birefringence analysis produces two classes of results.
Venting analysis is used to predict the effects of air pressure on the flow of polymer to aid in selecting suitable locations where vents may be placed in the mold to allow trapped air to escape the cavity.
A wire sweep analysis is used to predict the deformation of the bonding wires within the cavity.
A paddle shift analysis is used to predict shifting between the upper and lower cavities of the leadframe due to pressure imbalances.
