    Moulding

    Figure 1 – A moulder wanted to switch production of an injection moulded part from a 700 tonne machine to a 500 tonne machine. Via virtual DoE it was possible to modify the position of the injection points. Thereby SIGMA found, among over a hundred possible gating configurations, the one that reduces pressure demand most, and thus minimises clamping force (green mark).
