Clamp Force in Machine Opening Direction

You can specify the Injection Molding Machine Opening direction to estimate the clamp force in the selected direction.

In the Clamp Force PropertyManager, select one of the default axes (X, Y, or Z), or select a plane, planar face, or linear edge of your model to define a machine direction that is not aligned with a default axis.

To view the clamp force results:

  • Create an X-Y plot.
  • Access the Flow and Pack Summary where the clamp force in the user-defined machine direction is listed.
