Gas Assist Analysis


3D Gas Analysis

  • Evaluate gas injection to aid in part design, gate placement and process setup
  • Properly size gas channels for optimal filling and gas penetration
  • Determine the best gas channel layout
  • Detect areas of inadequate gas penetration
  • Determine the proper shot size to avoid gas "blowout"
  • Determine gas pressure required to avoid short shots and melt front hesitation
  • Investigate the effects of overflow wells
  • Determine final part weight after gas injection to maximize material savings and minimize weight
