For advanced CAE analysts and mold designers.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium includes everything in SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional plus advanced simulation functionality that allows users to analyze mold cooling line layouts and predict molded part warpage.
Users can design and analyze simple or complex mold cooling line layouts, optimize cooling system design to minimize cycle times and decrease manufacturing costs and optimize part and mold design, material selection and processing parameters to reduce or eliminate molded part warpage.
Investigate different cooling strategies and completely understand the conditions within the mold tool
Predict post-molding warpage, modify the tool and molding parameters to correct, or create counter-deformed geometry to allow for warp
Simulate advanced cooling strategies, like baffles, bubblers and model conformal cooling around the part geometry
Assist manufacturing teams to size the injection molding machine for a given mold, optimize injection molding cycle time and reduce plastics material scrap
Analyze sprues, runners and gates to balance runner systems; optimize gate type, size and location; determine the best runner layout, size and cross-sectional shape.
Ensure molds will work right the first time to avoid multiple rounds of time-consuming, costly and unnecessary rework
Boundary mesh (shell), solid 3D mesh, global and local mesh refinement
Plastics material database contains thousands of commercial plastics and is fully customizable
Web-based HTML reports make it fast and easy to communicate simulation results and design advice to all members of the design-to-manufacturing team
