Would you like to use process simulation to validate part quality (size, deformation, etc.) during the design phase?
Determine the critical elements to make your processes more reliable: process sizing, location of injection points, welding lines, the orientation of reinforcements, filling simulation, estimation of shrinkage and deformation.
Do you want to produce better quality parts and reduce your cycle times through thermal optimisation?
Thermal optimisation of tooling is a recognised technical solution for increasing the efficiency of injection and thermoforming process. It increases the quality of your parts in terms of their dimensions, appearance and characteristics.
In addition to these advantages, cycle times can be improved by up to 60% in the case of thermoforming.
Reduce your cycle times and ensure better dimensional stability of your parts thanks to conformal cooling. By combining our digital and additive manufacturing expertise, you can optimise thermal control by positioning cooling channels at strategic locations in your moulding tools.
Do you need to confirm or optimise your product design?
From the choice of materials to industrial scale-up, we support you at every stage in the development of your plastic or composite products. The industrial technical diagnostic is an essential phase, enabling us to highlight the shortcomings of your processes, the input parameters that could be optimised and poor production practices. IPC can help you optimise your plastics processes and adopt good manufacturing practices.
Make your parts lighter thanks to LINDE’s technology and our PLASTINUM platform. This technology impregnates your pellets with various rates of CO2 before injection, resulting in lighter products with the same functionality.
Simulate your plastic and composite parts in their environment.
Optimise product design based on the process.
Optimise shape, weight and topology.
In most cases, a failure is due to the material, the process or the part design. Let our experts help you determine the root cause and guarantee product quality.
