eSimpoe Works 2009
SIMPOE's mission is to make available to the global Engineering community plastic injection molding simulation solutions to allow drastic reduction in the costs of mold prototypes, optimize plastic material use and shorten time to markets of new products.
By providing easy to use and affordable solutions for plastic injection simulation, SIMPOE allows the worldwide Engineering community of Mechanical Engineers to take into account manufacturing constraints early in the product design cycle, in a world where plastic parts are more and more part of everyday life, and where manufacturers are under increasing pressure to launch new products faster and cheaper.
The increasing use of simulation solutions in the Product Development Process is part of the more global development of Product Lifecycle Management tools, where R&D Engineers around the world are working on the same project, under increasing pressure to develop the right product, right from the first time, at the right price and at the right time. SIMPOE provides such tools, for plastic injected parts.
Thanks to their scalability and complete functionalities, SIMPOE software solutions address both the “experts”, such as mold manufacturers or plastic parts producers, as well as the Mechanical Engineers designing plastic parts.
SIMPOE products will allow them to optimize molds, optimize material costs and launch their new products faster on the markets, saving their companies hundred of thousand of dollars.
The SimpoeWorks software suite includes several plug-in modules fully embedded with the SolidWorks CAD software. SimpoeWorks allow SolidWorks users to simulate the complete manufacturing process of their plastic parts, from filling to warpage, without ever leaving their familiar graphic environment.With SimpoeWorks , SolidWorks users can identify early into the design stage potential manufacturing problems, study alternative solutions and directly assess the impact of such part modification, always in the SolidWorks graphic environment. The seamless integration of SimpoeWorks with SolidWorks really ¡§closes the loop¡¨ of plastic part design and manufacturing optimization, whatever the complexity and geometry of such parts, shell parts as well as plain parts.The SimpoeWorks software suite includes the following plug-in modules:
- SimpoeWorks FILL, the base module, simulates part filling.SimpoeWorks FILL includes the powerfull pre- and post treatment functionalities developed by SIMPOE, as well as the built-in material library of a few thousands references, which can be also customized in a few mouse clicks. Thanks to SIMPOE¡¦ s advanced algorithms, SimpoeWorks automatically meshes the part in the blink of an eye.
SimpoeWorks FILL results include visualization of the melt front, weld lines, air traps, temperature and pressure distributions, shear rate and constraints, clamping forces, etc¡KSimpoeWorks PACK, which simulates the packing phase.SimpoeWorks COOL, for the simulation of thermal regulation during the injection process., allowing to define the optimum process time. Channels libraries can be defined in SolidWorks for a later use with SimpoeWorks.SimpoeWorks WARP simulates part deformation after mould opening. Deformations can be visualized in either direction, or globally, and the effects of residual constraints as well as material shrinkage displayed separately. The user can select his/her own reference system.
SimpoeWorks softwares require a SolidWorks license to run.
