Investigation of Deformation Analysis of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer Injection Molded Component
Keywords:Warpage, Fiber, Flatness
Warpage is one of the most crucial problems in injection molded products. Factors affecting warpage include Material, Part geometry, gate location, Fiber content & orientation, temperature, etc. Since many factors cause shrinkage and warpage, it is very difficult to distinguish the predominant factor. In the present study, we have focused on contribution of fiber content on warpage of injection molded part. Basic requirement of the part is flatness at sealing area within given tolerance. The required flatness should be within a given tolerance for effective functioning of the component. Flow simulation software has been used to assess the effect of fiber content on warpage and in turn flatness of the component.
