We interface with computer aided design (CAD) systems accepting fully surfaced or solid models. By using solid modeling and flow simulation we can identify potential problems before we start machining. By highlighting areas of extreme pressure, uneven flow velocities and/or temperature profiles, and areas of extreme shear viscosities, we can often reduce or eliminate the necessity for costly product trials and adjustments and better ensure consistent quality and reduce lead times.
Akron Tool & Die consults with our extrusion customers to address exsiting problems and/or concerns and offer solutions to better control temperature, moisture content, or material flow. These modifications often result in improved performance, savings in energy costs, and/or increased throughput.
