Plastic End Cap Injection Tool Design and Molding Analysis Based on Software Ug and Moldflow
Software UG is used to design plastic end cap injection tools and to do injection molding analysis. Firstly, use the modeling function of the software to design the structure of a plastic product. Secondly, design the mold according to characteristics of the product and generate a tool drawing. Finally, use moldflow software to analyze injection system of a 2-cavity tool, the best position of feed gate and plastic flow in the cavities, to improve the type, size and position of the feed gate and distribution of runners, as well as to reduce the cycle time and processing cost to the largest extent. This paper is to adopt Moldflow software to analyze the temperature, pressure and filling of the designed injection molding, and determine the design structure of the molding through improving the molding design according to the analysis results.
