Moving toward the future is challenging because new products and tools are developed all the time.

As the plastic industry grows, the number of competitors grows too. Glasfil Polymer has taken the opportunity to upgrade our Research and Development facilities and allocates almost 5-10% of the company’s total revenue for R&D annual expenses. This indicates that we committed to improve this department to implement better design and execution of our product.

Our R&D jumps over hurdles in projects with immediate practical relevance and we focus forward from material via production processes and component properties up to assessment of procedures and products in the light of economical and ecological aspects. Our research results meet operating requirements, quality and efficiency.

Using softwares like 2D & 3D Solidworks 2009 Version and MOLDEX3D has helped increase the flexibility and innovation in designing products. Running simulations on structural analysis, modelling as well as reviewing suitability of threads and gear systems are done before fabrication. We start an analysis based on the design given by the customer and the result will help us to investigate what and where is the best possible gate point. From there, we could detect any defects at an earlier stage and prevent defects such as warping, weld line, sink mark etc. This analysis is done before moving on to the next step of mold fabrication.

Software Highlights

The purchase of SolidWork 3D in 2010 has shown our commitment to be in advance in designing good quality products. We have allocated a percentage of funds into the R&D stage as it is very crucial in determining the initial study and analysis of all the designs created. This software helps to increase our capability as well as improve our lead time in the fabrication and mold testing stage.

SolidWorks Feature:

  • Parts and Assembling of Products
  • Interference Checking
  • Simulation and Analysis
  • Animation and Rendering in 3D
  • Cost Estimation and Documentation
  • Basic System Requirement

With the assistance of SolidWorks design, we have taken one more advanced step by purchasing Moldex3D software. Moldex3D is the world leading CAE product for the plastic injection molding industry. It has the best-in-class analysis technology and with that can carry out in-depth simulation of the widest range of injection molding processes and to optimize product designs and manufacturability.

The benefits of the analysis:

  • Validation of design before real mold fabrication
  • Enhance mold capability
  • Increase efficiency
  • Improve accuracy
  • Shorten the market introduction time
  • Increase high performance of products
