Injection Molding Simulation
Your product starts with an idea. Turning your idea into a product and getting it to market as quickly as possible is both a challenge and an opportunity. We will help you design your idea into a product of the highest quality that can be manufactured in the fastest, most cost-effective way.
Kruse Analysis Capabilities
Injection Molding Simulation
At Kruse Analysis our mission is to assist companies in the injection molding industry, primarily by focusing our efforts on CAE molding simulations.
Performing mold filling analysis will not only ensure that a part will fill properly, it will also allow your engineers to have a smooth “art to part” development and manufacturing process. It is a tool that helps the engineer visualize how a plastic part is molded and performs.
Of course, the results and interpretations of an analysis are only as good as the overall knowledge of the analyst running your simulations. At Kruse Analysis, we pride ourselves on the many years of experience in part design, mold design, material chemistry, processing training, and actual hands-on molding.
Analysts not only need experience, they also need state of the art CAE and CAD software, high tech hardware systems and innovative tools and methods to present your analysis results. At Kruse Analysis, we have them all –we are currently using Moldex3D as our main simulation software system.
But that’s not all – our service to you does not end with a simple written report. After our analysis, we provide real-time online simulation reviews, which can be recorded for future evaluation within your organization whenever needed. This allows for continued access to not only the results, but the in-depth evaluation, discussion, and recommendations from Kruse Analysis.
