Simcenter Testlab Enables Better Usage of Test-Based Data
Siemens Digital Industries Software announces the latest release of the Simcenter Testlab software suite.
Siemens Digital Industries Software announces the latest release of the Simcenter Testlab software suite, designed to help engineers make quicker decisions by increasing productivity in testing scenarios through new capabilities. It has been specifically designed to offer test teams all the capabilities they need to innovate smart products under tight schedules. Now, test-based data is used not only for validation and certification, but also earlier in the development cycle, during simulation and design.
The latest version introduces brand new technologies, as well as a series of functional enhancements. The version includes advancing model-based development, model-based system testing uniquely closes the loop with simulation and enables system validation based on a combined physical and virtual test. It has component-based transfer path analysis predicts full-system noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance earlier in the development cycle by combining component models and measurements. In response to NVH challenges in vehicle electrification, the latest release covers the new minimum noise standards for Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System, introduces active sound design to create brand-specific sounds, and enhances sound quality engineering with high-quality interactive audio and video replay. The latest version of Simcenter Testlab adds numerous extensions to Simcenter Testlab Neo software and to the other Simcenter Testlab solutions. It sets higher standards in critical focus areas, such as greater productivity, increased confidence, better insight and easier collaboration, maximizing the benefits of using the digital twin.
One of the biggest challenges in mold design for silicone molding is the runnerless molding system or cold deck.
A lesson on shear induced melt variations ends some confusion regarding balancing runner systems for multi-cavity molds.
A quality hot runner system is one of the more important enhancements you can incorporate into a mold to improve molded part quality, reduce production times and remain price competitive.
