Moldflow Analysis Report
Summary
ANALYSIS AIMS
To study the flow and predict the cycle time of the A1309-2 part.
ANALYSIS APPROACH
The cavity and the cold runner sections are modeled.
And a Fusion Cool + Flow + Warp analysis was conducted.
The specified material is PP (grade is specified BP RPP 2009 GK BLK, which is not listed in
the moldflow database, so we used Polypropylene PPC 5660 from TOTAL Petrochemicals) to
running the analysis .
This may effect the actual values obtained in the analysis (e.g. shrinkage values, pressure
requirements), but it can still be used to observe the general trends in the results (e.g. filling
pattern, warpage shape etc).
CONCLUSION
A pressure drop of 15MPa is expected across the system which indicating this material can
easy to fill this part.
The over all melt front temperature drop is C across the part, which is acceptable.
The weld lines might be visible to eye due to zero degree of two melt.
The part is expected to have warpage in X,Y,Z direction, the particular data of warpage please
refer to page 20 to 23.
The hot spots in the slider side due to the placement of the cooling channel, these area need
to add cooling circuit or beryllium insert if we can (refer to page 19).

Pressure drop
A pressure drop of 15MPa is expected across the system,
this indicated that the material is easy to fill this part.

Temperature at flow front
The plastics material enters the runners at 230 C.
The overall temperature drop is about 1.2C,
which is acceptable.

Cooling Channels : Temperature Rise
The coolant is specified as water at 25 C, and with turbulent flow in each channels
(Reynold Number = 10,000).
The outlet temperature of each channels is exceed 0.66C, this indicate the cooling
channels are efficient.
