Altair launches intelligent and intuitive simulating injection molding solution
Source:Adsale Plastics Network    Editor:JK    Date:25.Nov.2020

Altair, a global technology company providing solutions in data analytics, simulation, and high-performance computing (HPC), has launched Altair Inspire Mold, a revolutionary, end-to-end solution for simulating injection molding.


Manufacturability of new components can now be evaluated at the outset of the development process, and the risk of defects such as warping, sink marks, and short shots are mitigated before any costly investments are made in molds.


Altair Inspire Mold allows users to evaluate part manufacturability of injection molds.

Design iterations are completed faster, and fewer are needed before an optimal solution is identified. Scrap, tooling, and rework costs are slashed, and there are no requirements for specialized, GPU-computing hardware.


Inspire Mold offers engineers fast, highly capable tools with solver performance and opportunities to make better design decisions earlier, reduce costs, speed time-to-market, and optimize the quality and manufacturability of finished parts.


It joins Altair’s existing Inspire manufacturing simulation offerings including casting, forming, mold-filling, extrusion, and additive manufacturing.


Altair Inspire Mold has an easy five-step workflow.

“Inspire Mold puts designers and engineers firmly in control of faster, more intelligent, and intuitive evaluation of injection molded plastic parts,” said James Dagg, chief technical officer, Altair. “Inspire Mold reduces the costs and delays traditionally found in the slow and laborious processing of design iterations, as well as the building and reworking of prototype molds.”


Other key features of Inspire Mold include:


  • Optimized user experience – product designers and engineers can easily conduct virtual testing, validation, correction, and optimization of molding designs via an intuitive, five-step workflow

  • Fast, next generation 3D technology – experimental approximations of traditional 2.5D solvers are eliminated. Support for advanced physics empowers advanced and novice users with deeper insights and understanding

  • Access to materials data – data for 60 materials is embedded in Inspire Mold and the Altair Material Data Center (MDC) will soon be integrated, allowing MDC license holders direct, immediate access to reliable, high-quality material data

  • Comprehensive end-to-end solution – technology stretches from initial design through to material mapping of reinforced engineering polymers, analyzing and optimizing the structural and fatigue performance of complex parts
