Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer provides the user with an integrated software solution which helps to meet the ever increasing demands in product quality and profitability. High surface quality with complex profiles and multi-material dies drive the development in the polymer extrusion sector.
With Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer you are up to the task.
With Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer you can visualize, analyze and optimize the material flow through complex dies also covering coextrusion and multi-material processes, giving you the edge over the competition.
Combining features in a tool increases complexity and productivity. Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer can provide robust data to balance these factors and improve profitability.
In the case of profiles with small physical dimensions tool deformation becomes a serious factor in product quality. With Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer the user can simulate and analyze the tool deformation, thus giving the user the advantage and means to optimize the tooling, improving dimensional accuracy.
Improving surface quality by early detection of defects like:
- Profile form defects
- Uneven wall thickness
- Swelling of the polymer
Improvements of mechanical properties due to early detection of non surface defects like:
- Dead zones
- Welding zones in coextrusion processes
- Overheating the polymer
- Analysis of material boundaries
Increased productivity and profitability:
- Increase in productivity due to optimization of process parameters before testing.
- Detection and reduction of tool deformation.
- Detection and reduction of tool wear and excessive heating.
- Reduction in tool – internal pressure differences to guarantee a steady material flow, reducing wastage.
Small changes make the difference
The intuitive user interface and the automatization of laborious modelling tasks makes Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer very user friendly. Integrated tutorials and Altair’s unique online learning resources make otherwise mandatory expensive trainings dispensable thus increasing return of investment for the company.
