MoldFlow Analysis Services

MoldFlow Analysis Services

Expertise of injection molding to optimize process parameters and product quality.

Our Mission

SM Contact Engineering offers FEA services for moldflow processes to predict manufacturing problems, improve material selection, tooling design, mold and part geometry.

We carry out thorough analysis of filling the mold with polymer melt (e.g. thermoplastic). To accomplish studies we need to know gate position, polymer type and process parameters. All the results has graphical representation that reflects such criteria as temperature and pressure distribution, weld lines, air traps, etc.

Wherever you are, we can fully participate in your project joining it at any stage via Internet: from conceptualization and design to prototyping and testing.
