SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional allows you to evaluate single-cavity, multi-cavity and family mold layouts with ease – including sprues, runners and gates. Balance runner systems and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage and shot size, enabling you to optimize feed system design and avoid expensive mold rework.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional provides anyone who designs or builds injection molds an accurate, easy-to-use way to optimize them. Quickly create and analyze single-cavity, multi-cavity, and family mold layouts, including sprues, runners, and gates. Being able to balance runner systems and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage, and shot size, gives you the ability to optimize feed system design and avoid costly mold rework.
These simulation tools predict how the melted plastic will behave during the injection molding process which helps prevent manufacturing defects. Save time, energy and resources with SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional.
