Simulation of Manufacturing Processes
Grundfos Center, Poul Due Jensens Vej 23, 8850 Bjerringbro
Wednesday 25. May 2016,  9.30 - 16.00

DANSIS invites you to a seminar that will present different ways of simulating manufacturing processes that involve fluid motion.


9.30 Registration
10.00 Welcome
10.15 General introduction to manufacturing proces simulations with case examples on metal casting and additive manufacturing 
Jesper Hattel, DTU Mechanical Engineering
10.55 Coffee break 
11.15 Simulation of injection moulding - conformal cooling analysis CFD using Moldex3D 
Moldex3D, Taiwan  slides
11.45 Flow visualization and simulation using a glass mold 
Brian K. Sørensen, LEGO

To directly compare experimental moldings from an injection molding machine with simulations, a special mold has been produced with a glass window. A high speed camera recording 500 frames per second was employed, and the mold had three thermocouples and two pressure sensors installed. The molded part is a 2 mm thick plate with a 0.5 mm thin section, which creates a characteristic V-shaped flow pattern. The experiments has been compared with simulation of the filling pattern, timings and pressure prediction.
12.15 Lunch  
13.00 Application of injection-moulding simulations at Grundfos
Michel Haenel, Grundfos France   slides
13.30 Simulation of metal casting processes - state-of-the-art and industrial applications
Nicola Gramegna, Enginsoft, Italy   slides
14.00 Production tour & coffee
15.10 Use of CAE tools for the optimization of products and processes in an iron foundry 
Dr. Thorsten Schmidt, Heidenreich & Harbeck, Germany    slides

The iron foundry Heidenreich & Harbeck established an own design office in order to support customers in the development of superior structure components for machines and plants. In case examples the typical procedure, starting with the topology optimization, will be illustrated. The obtained design proposal is the base for an efficient design process, accompanied by FEA calculations and cast process simulations. It will be shown that these CAE tools are applied not only for the development of customer products, but also for the support and optimization of downstream processes in pattern shop, foundry, milling shop or QA department.
15.50 Closing remarks
Knud Erik Meyer, DANSIS chairman
16.00 End

Members of DANSIS can participate in the seminar free of charge. Non-members are also invited to participate at a fee of 400 DKK.
