Shrinkage and Warpage Analysis
Fiber Orientation Analysis

Fiber Orientation Analysis (Short and Long)

Our fiber orientation analysis uses different percentages and lengths of glass fiber to identify the shrinkage and warpage conditions of a molded plastic part. This service also involves the following:

  • Identifying the Degree of Orientation on the Surface and in the Center of the Plastic Part
  • Assessing Total Warpage Due to Fiber Direction
  • Calculating Short or Long Fibers
  • Exporting Anisotropic Results to Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Exporting Anisotropic Thermomechanical Properties to FEA
  • Improving Dimensional Stability

Multicomponent Molding

We provide multicomponent molding services involving the following:

  • Adding Metal or Plastic Part Inserts
  • Identifying Thermal Results of the First and/or Second Shot of Plastic Material
  • Adding Mold Component Inserts
  • Identifying Thermal Tool Insert Results
  • Reducing the Cycle Using Highly Conductive Mold Metals
  • Identifying the Displacement of Terminals
  • Identifying the Differences of Hot or Cold Inserts
  • Performing Two-Shot Plastic Injection Molding and Overmolding

Advance Hot Runner

EPS FloTek, LLC’s full hot runner manifold modeling process uses conductive and non-conductive materials for the following:
