Customer Spotlight: Virtual Modelling's Role in Improving Impact Performance of Plastic Containers

Dassault Systemes SIMULIA invite you to attend their first customer spotlight webinar. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from the presenter Sumit Mukherjee, Director of CAE and Simulation at Plastic Technologies on the changing landscape of design and simulation in packaging industry. This presentation focuses on interplay between design and material distribution to help improve container performance.

The packaging industry is on the brink of process change. Design guidelines have matured to the point that it helps take concepts & convert them to viable production ready designs. However, the output from this stage does not tell us whether or not a specific performance characteristic—such as improving the drop impact performance—has been achieved on the container. Challenges exist with ideal thickness distribution (economics vs. optimal performance) for blow molded containers. Attend the webinar to learn how Plastics Technology Inc uses simulation to:

  • Study filling, packing and distribution of material that helps determine if a part can be blown with optimal thickness and geometry
  • Predict whether or not the part can absorb the resulting stress after being dropped without rupturing.
