Northville, MI – September 11, 2013 – CoreTech System Co., Ltd. (Moldex3D), the leader in 3D CAE simulation solutions for plastic injection molding industry, is delighted to announce its paper has won Best Paper Award at 2013 SPE® Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE) for research into a newly proposed iARD-RPR model to improve the accuracy of fiber orientation predictions for injection-molded thermoplastics. CoreTech System (Moldex3D) is honored with the award out of 90 contenders by conference peer reviewers and was recognized with the award during the opening ceremonies on Wednesday, September 11th at the Diamond Banquet & Conference Center in Novi, Michigan.
The paper entitled “Three Dimensional Predictions of Fiber Orientation for Injection Molding of Long Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastics” was authored by Dr. Ivor Huan-Chang Tseng (pictured), program manager in the R&D Division of CoreTech System (Moldex3D). Using 40 wt% glass-fiber immersed in a polypropylene matrix that was injection molded in a center-gated disk to predict the fiber orientation distribution, the work has demonstrated a good correlation between the new fiber orientation prediction model and the experimental observations.
“It’s a great honor to receive this recognition from SPE ACCE,” said Dr. Tseng. “We’ve been working in various research areas of simulation technology for plastic injection molding, looking for ways to enhance accuracy of CAE software prediction capabilities, and the new fiber orientation model is one of our achievements, which can be used in a wide range of industries and applications, to help users obtain real-life molding results.”
