FREE MOLDING SOFTWARE!
Determine the cause of your imbalance issues with Molding Genius.
If you run multi-cavity molds, you should be using Molding Genius. Period.
What is Molding Genius?
Molding Genius is a software developed by Beaumont Technologies. This method has been designed to quickly and easily determine mold imbalances and display the results in easy to understand bar graphs.
It uses short shot weight information to determine the balance of a mold.
This software delivers critical data that is much more useful than what a standard short shot balance test would provide. Not only does it tell you the magnitude of the mold filling imbalance, but also what the source of the imbalance is, allowing you to more quickly and easily troubleshoot your parts.
Molding Genius grew out of Beaumont’s 5step software. The method has moved beyond five steps and now has increased functionality and a greatly improved user interface.
How Does It Work?
Molding Genius utilizes the principles of plastic flow to narrow down the cause of filling imbalances into two categories:
A variation caused by plastic shear heating as it flows through a runner system. Shear variations are not the fault of processing nor tooling, and therefore neither of these items will solve the problem. Beaumont’s MeltFlipper can control shear variations and provide uniform balance to all cavities.
A catch all term used to describe a physical imperfection within the tool or press. Common steel variations include variations in gates, runners, vents, cavity geometry, cold slugs, nozzle blockage, and hot runner variations.
When you review your data, you will know the source of your issue and can move on to fixing the problem instead of spending more time searching for the root cause.
Why Use It?
Molding Genius has a number of benefits. It can help you:
