Injection molding simulation for rubber and elastomer is no longer limited to predicting the cavity filling while designing the part, or to answering questions regarding balanced filling. Based on an accurate simulation of the curing reaction (vulcanization), it can be used for designing the mold, identifying process windows and troubleshooting during production.
