FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS

FEA is a computational tool to perform elemental analysis for designs. Through FEA we are able to simulate various situation and predict the following material behaviors:

    · Simulate sealing integrity
    · Bending and buckling behavior
    · Compression load deflection (CLD)
    · I/E - insertion/extraction forces
    · Acoustic
    · Thermal Transfer

This technical service we offer helps validate the profile design even before the part is produced. By analyzing stress, deflection, and other factors we can optimize the profile design.

In the following example, we analyzed the customer's initial product design for insertion and extraction forces. We simulated the deflection and with our modeling software, determined the forces.

With Proposal 1, we were able to reduce insertion force by 47%. Design Proposal 2 even further reduced insertion force by an additional 75% while extraction force compared to the original design increased by 35%.

With our sophisticated modeling techniques, we are able to provide our customers with an optimized product design faster without multiple extrusion die iterations. This customer was able to successfully launch their product in less time with better product performance.

With a proven track record of success, We make it possible.
