Process Optimization analyses are used to determine optimum ram speed and packing pressure profiles so that parts produced are of the highest quality.
The Process Optimization analysis calculates the optimum process settings, based on the material data, mold geometry, and molding machine characteristics. It then runs a Fill or a Fill+Pack analysis using the optimum process settings.
Given a mold, a machine and a material, the Process Optimization program aims to find the optimum process settings, through several iterations, so that the resulting parts do not warp, contain sink marks or have any weaknesses associated with injection molding. These process settings can be directly implemented on the molding machine.
