Webinar: Integrating Draping and Compression Molding Processes
The continuous surge in demand for lightweight yet high-strength design has prompted large components to undergo composite-for-metal replacement. One of the most common processes for making composite products is a two-step process – draping followed by compression molding of the draped part . With this process, the challenge is how to effectively control the deformed shape of the final part. In this webinar, we will show you how to obtain the effects of draping on fiber orientation through LS-DYNA structural analysis software, and then export the effects into Moldex3D for an integrated analysis. Such an analysis can help engineers evaluate the effects of draping on warpage for the best possible design.
