  • Publication number: 20230023694
    Abstract: A process for producing a molded article involves providing a thin-walled, gas-permeable shell; filling the shell with a foamed pelletized material composed of a polymer; and welding the foamed pelletized material to obtain the molded article. Molded articles are obtainable or obtained by such a process, and can be used as a footwear sole, part of a footwear sole, a mattress, a seat cushion, an underlay, a grip, a protective film, a component in automobile interiors and exteriors, a gymnastics mat, a body protector, a trim element in automobile construction, a sound insulator, a vibration damper, a cushion, a bicycle saddle, a toy, a tire or part of a tire, a covering for a track and field surface, a covering for a sports hall or a pathway, a damping layer or a damping core in a sandwich element, or a packaging.

  • Publication number: 20220288830
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are a computer-implemented method and a design system for designing a molding process for manufacturing at least one component. The computer-implemented method includes a) retrieving three-dimensional geometrical data describing a candidate shape of a mold cavity; b) analyzing the geometrical data; c) automatically interpreting at least one analysis result generated in step b) by subjecting the analysis result to at least one target specification; and d) outputting at least one interpretation result generated in step c), the interpretation result describing at least one quality of one or both of the molding process and a part design using the candidate shape of the mold cavity.

  • Publication number: 20220266492
    Abstract: Described herein is a computer-implemented method for simulating a filling process of a mold cavity in an injection molding process using a plastic material, the method including: i) discretizing at least a part of the mold cavity into a plurality of cells; ii) defining a cavity injection point; iii) determining a surface normal direction perpendicular to the nearest cavity sur-face for each cell; iv) determining a cell coordinate system for each cell, defined by a first principal direction parallel to a flow direction, a third principal direction parallel to the normal direction, and a second principal direction perpendicular to the first and third principal directions; and v) determining the flow direction of a mold flow for each cell.
