Wide Ranging Part and Mold Simulation Software

SpecialChem / Sep 9, 2008

The Madison Group of the Polymer Processing Research Corporation was incorporated by University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers to permit technology transfer from academia to industry. Several simulation packages for the polymer processing industry have been developed to help various industries design plastic parts and solve processing problems. The Madison Group offers a wide range of software solutions from commercially available packages to custom software development. Cadpress-SMC (Thermoset Compression Molding Simulation) is a general purpose finite element compression molding simulation program which calculates the mold filling, pressure and velocity distributions, fiber orientation, anisotropic material properties, curing behavior, and the shrinkage and warpage of the final part. Cadpress, developed over the past two decades, is a finite element based simulation package that has become the standard for the compression molding industry. The software simulates the entire molding process for fiber reinforced thermoset compression molding, from mold filling to prediction of residual stresses and warpage of the final part.
