Polyflow (Blow molding) integration with thermal & CFX

      Hello everyone,

      I have a requirement to perform blow molding and heat the mold for some time, say 120sec using heater blocks and cool the mold using cooling blocks. Is this kind of simulation possible in Ansys using Polyflow and then transfer results to thermal. Also while moving the mold from heating machine to cooling machine it exposes to air for some time on the conveyer. 

      Can anyone help me what are the component systems I can use in Ansys for this simulation?

      Regards

      Hari

      Hi

      Non-isothermal blow molding can be done using Polyflow. Check here for some tutorials on blow molding in Polyflow help page: https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/Views/Secured/corp/v222/en/poly_pftut/pt03.html

      You can then transfer the part to other solvers for further analysis.

      Hi Hari,

      Please refer Polyflow to Mechanical Data Transfer (ansys.com) for transferring polyflow data to thermal and Using Imported Loads for One-Way FSI (ansys.com) for Mechanical- CFX coupling.

      Hope this helps you!
