FLEXMould: Self-regulating flexible mould for injection moulding of polymer materials

flexmouldRS-MGRT 2017EU nalozba-prihodnost 2017RR-puscica 2017

Project description:

Project FLEXMould is co-founded development project which is according to the Slovenian Smart Specialisation Strategy S4 focused in priority axis Factories of the Future.

The main overall aim of the project Flexmould is development of Self-regulating prototype mould for injection moulding of polymer materials which is capable to produce geometrical different products by changing of cavities with autonomous regulated actuator’s system. Such mould will be capable to produce different variants of the same product or completely different products in smaller series on a cost efficient way.

Bizjan Orodjarstvo is responsible for fabrication of the flexible prototype mould with actuator’s system. Company will be also provider of the new generation of flexible moulds in the market.

Tecos role:

TECOS main role in the project is design a demonstration parts and development of the flexible mould concept with an actuator system and control unit. TECOS responsibility is also testing of the prototype mould and improving of the system. Besides, TECOS takes care on project management, technical and financial reporting in accordance with long-term experiences by coordination of demanding project.

Sample Project

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

The client had to renew a wore down rotor with knife segments for which they didn't have any documentation. With precise 3D scanning of the original and creation of functional CAD model we provided them with data for production of replacement.

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

The customer has presumed problems with excessive warpage in the stage of tool design. The material is PA66 with 30% of glass fibers. With the help of advanced injection moulding analysis we predicted the trend and values of warpage and thus successfully eliminated the problems.

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Our client has planned a single phase deep drawing process for the presented case, however several doubts about manufacturability arose. The conducted analysis has cleared all doubts.

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

We made a comparative study between experimentaly and numerically determined strength of a fibre reinforced product, which yielded extremely good match of the results from both methods.
