Optimization of Warpage in Injection Molding Based on Simulated Annealing Algorithm
To make a simulated annealing algorithm(SA) to optimize the method of warping deformation of the purpose is to enable the optimal value of the warpage. Using ActiveX technology and VB programming tools will be SA and Moldflow combination. The optimal injection molding process parameters, such as mold temperature, melt temperature, gate location were determined by according to Metropolis criterion and following a route of Monte Carlo(MC) heuristic random search determined by SA. The results of the typical model show that the wargae is accurate and reliable, and the optimization efficiency is effectively improved by applying the SA method, therefore the combination of Moldflow and SA proposed in this paper is useful for the optimization of injection molding process parameters.
