Constant profiles specify operating parameters, such as pressure or flow rate, which have a constant value through a step.
Profiling operating parameters can give greater control over the final product. Factors such as warpage can be reduced by profiling the packing pressure over time. Profiles within the Autodesk Simulation Moldflow product are used to simulate these adjustments.
Constant profiles can have a stepped value incorporated. Profiles are defined in the Process Setting Wizard ( ) by a table outlining how the parameter is to change through the cycle. If a profile is specified with the values in the following table, a profile that looks like the following diagram will result.
