Case Study: Flow Simulation Helps Flea Collar Manufacturer
Customer’s die geometry was experiencing difficulty providing a uniform product. Customer noted some uneven product flow during extrusion.
Provide customer a design which would optimize flow and product uniformity.
Using our CFD flow simulation software, we first analyzed the customer’s existing die design and studied the flow of material through the die. Flow simulation revealed uneven flow velocities i.e., dissimilar product flow.
Customer trialed the new design and successfully validated the findings from the flow simulation. Product uniformity had been vastly increased while product density was improved because of the dimensional changes to the die.
Akron Tool & Design and Diamond America are headquartered in Akron, OH and provide dies, extrusion equipment, and cutters internationally.
