Lightweight design often is all about replacing metal parts with plastics. Simulation tools are useful to avoid oversized parts and verify its physical integrity early in the development process. But to do it right, influences of the manufacturing process and the right material choice are essential. During this webinar, this process will be outlined for an injection molded short-fiber-reinforced plastic part. The effects of weld lines, fiber orientation, temperature and more, on the part's strength cannot be ignored. How such influences are easily considered will be shown in this webinar.
