Process Simulator


The process simulator (PS) enables the user to predict the extrudability of any complex profile, and to work out its expected productivity. It can also show extrusion process operators how to design and optimize their process parameters and can be used as a training tool for the related staff.

It correponds to a simpler but version of the 3D simulator, the simplification being based on the Multiparametric Reduction Mapping (MRM) method that enables one to reduce the complex 3D geometry to a few key parameters which are essential for the simulation. Press cycles can be computed in a few minutes even for the most complicated profiles (full / hollow).

The influence of various process conditions and parameters can be observed from the simulation results, As an example, the following figure shows the ram pressure evolution for successive extrusion cycles.
