The Role of Simulation as Moldmakers Move Towards Aluminum Tooling
A free white paper by SimuTech Group
Aluminum is fast emerging as the preeminent material in the injection molding plastics industry. The benefits of using aluminum tooling as opposed to steel tooling in the process of fashioning molded plastic parts are numerous. However, there are some distinct drawbacks that one must take into account before deciding which metal to select for a particular project. The most effective way to make this critical decision is to use various methods of computer simulation. Simulation allows a firm to examine the myriad of unique factors surrounding a specific project, and how they affect the decision of which type of metal to use. Learn which types of programs are best for which types of projects, and how the engineers at SimuTech can help you decide which simulation programs best fit the specifications of your firm’s projects.
