The Temperature, maximum, part result displays the maximum temperature in the part, based on the cycle averaged mold surface temperatures (temperature, part (top), and temperature, part (bottom) results), calculated at the end of cooling time.
Using this result
Use the Temperature, maximum, part result plot to check that the polymer melt temperature is below the ejection temperature for the material at the end of cooling, so that the part can be ejected successfully.
Things to look for
- Look for areas where the temperature is higher than the ejection temperature.
- If your model has areas with temperatures higher than your ejection temperature, then create a plot of the temperature profile as an XY graph in the areas where high temperature occurs. Determine how much of the cross section is above the ejection temperature. There may be ejection or warpage problems when some of the cross section is above the ejection temperature.
