Transvalor has developed, in their REM3D® software, a unique and accurate foam molding simulation for both flexible and rigid PU Foams. We have validated the flow front position on short shots and using thermocouples. Accuracy of the simulation results is within the accuracy typical within experimental reproducibility.
The Rem3D® validation on industrial part shows a realistic flow pattern, predicts minimum fill and allow us to optimize molding conditions (temperatures, gating, venting).
Finally, we obtain good density distribution prediction. Indeed, the software takes into account pressure effect (both internal and external) and gravity orientation, both processes parameters important for us.
