SimpaTec - Innovative Methods and Solution Concepts ...

... for the Plastics Processing Industry at the K Trade Fair!

Following a long-term tradition, SimpaTec GmbH, being a competent engineering and software partner, presents innovative methods and solution concepts for the plastics processing industry at the K Trade Fair in Düsseldorf, Germany. For the first time, SimpaTec can be found at two different locations on the K premises in order to communicate current progressions and development trends within the industry to customers and interested visitors even more intensively and vividly.

In hall 13, Stand 13 / A94, visitors will learn all about the latest version R17 of Moldex3D, the leading software solution for designing and optimizing the injection molding process. With the new release the capabilities of simulation for injection molding have been further extended. SimpaTec is proud to announce that the latest version has numerous new features and novelties which provide more comprehensive and realistic simulations to help close the gap between the physical and virtual worlds. The completely new user interface and the unified simulation workflow allow users to gain deeper insights into product performance a lot faster and thus accelerating the decision-making process. In addition, to tackling the ever-growing demand for lightweight components in the automotive and aerospace sectors, Moldex3D R17 offers significant improvements in composites simulation solutions to meet various manufacturing needs.

Faster and more accurate insights thanks to a uniform platform
Moldex3D has been striving to enhance usability to help users translate simulation data into useful product insights faster and easier. Moldex3D R17 Studio seamlessly integrates all simulation processes on a single, unified platform, and greatly enhances the way users can view and interact with a model. For example, users can now use measurement and scale tools in Studio to directly measure shrinkage values and make instant design changes to compensate for shrinkage. Moreover, with the new post processing and visualization functionality along with faster rendering performance in R17, engineers can now quickly unlock the hidden insights behind the model, mitigating manufacturing risks and accelerating product development.

Moldex3D R17 - Groundbreaking Composites Simulation Technology to Achieve Lightweighting Goals
Simulation plays a major role in helping manufacturers easily crossover to lightweight materials and manufacturing processes. In the latest release, Moldex3D continues its technology leadership in fiber composites simulation with the introduction of flow-fiber coupling analysis, which empowers engineers to more accurately capture the anisotropic flow behavior induced by fiber orientation. Composite components that deal with high concentration of fibers and demand high accuracy will greatly benefit from this novel coupling method. Moldex3D fiber orientation analysis with R17 now supports a new filler type—flat fibers to enable greater design freedom and help achieve better mechanical properties and improved dimensional stability.

"Smart Engineering - Smart Processing" on Stand 14 / C32
In terms of "Smart Engineering / Smart Processing - Intelligent product, process and tool development", SimpaTec will present innovative solution aspects for fast and reliable manufacturability analysis, verification and optimization of components taking into account all aspects of the manufacturing process and the manufacturing process tool concept in hall 14 / stand C32.

The focus will be set on all CAx products of the SimpaTec product portfolio. Amongst other, the following will be shown:
_ Digimat, a state-of-the-art material modeling technology that accelerates development processes for plastics, composites, and structures, bridges the gap between manufacturing and structural performance, and accurately predicts the non-linear micromechanical behavior of complex multiphase composites and structures.
_ the help of T-SIM the complex manufacturing process of thermoforming, a forming process of thermoplastics characterized by large deformations of polymeric materials, can be visualized, analyzed and optimized.
_ the production of hollow bodies made of thermoplastic materials, whose common feature is the inflation of a preform in a forming blow mold, the blow molding process can be imaged and optimized with B-SIM.
_ the leading CAD software suite with 3D_Evolution ©, 3D_Analyzer and 4D_Additive, designed to work together in multi-CAD environments, guarantees a seamless, integrated process and optimal 3D printing.

SimpaTec, operating since 2004, offers professional engineering services and support for the development and optimization of injection molding components in every stage of the process. Convince yourself how SimpaTec can be a competent partner for the plastics processing industry enabling your way to product and process optimization as short and efficiently as possible by combining high-quality simulation and customer-oriented consulting services.

Interested? We look forward to welcoming you at our stand at K (hall 13, stand 13/A94 and hall 14, stand C32) to “clink glasses” with customers, business partners and all booth visitors to duly "celebrate" the 15th company anniversary! Cheers!!!
