FEA software simulates the behaviour of a real component with a mathematical model that includes the physical conditions in which it operates. The finite element model is then analysed by a finite element analysis solver, which calculates data reflecting the design behaviour to the applied boundary conditions, and can help to identify weaknesses or potential failures in the design.
Failure to account for these boundary conditions can result in issues in maintaining effective sealing or early product failure due to unforeseen stress/deformation conditions.
Active Polymer Technologies can help you accurately simulate accurately your products without having to invest in analysis software.
We have our own in-house material testing capabilities to create the material data required to feed the mathematical model including:
Active Polymer Technologies will help you with any aspect of polymer design from prototype design through to manufacture and quality control. We can arrange a friendly no-strings-attached meeting and confidential discussion on how we can help you resolve any design issues you may have.
