Autodesk Moldflow Summit: Bend, Don't Break When Processing Long-Fiber Theromplastic Resins

Troy, MI, June 7, 2017
Presenter: Erik Foltz

The use of long-fiber composite parts has allowed engineers and designers integrate plastic components into performance critical applications. However, the end performance of those parts is heavily dependent on how the resin is processed. This presentation will highlight the new fiber breakage model implemented in Autodesk Moldflow Insight, and how the simulation can be used to help identify potential areas of concern in a mold design. The presentation will include correlation studies in which fiber length measurements were made and compared between simulation and physical parts.
