What is CONVERSE?
CONVERSE is an easy-to-use software that bridges the gap between injection molding simulation and mechanical simulation. It leads to significantly more reliable results with regard to stiffness and strength of short-fiber-reinforced injection molded parts as well as more realistic simulation of the thermo-mechanical behavior of molds and inserts. CONVERSE enables the user to consider anisotropic part properties like for example fiber orientations and residual stresses in a mechanical simulation of the molded part as well as considering process loads like molding pressures, temperatures onto inserts or the mold itself.
CONVERSE is a software that bridges the gap between injection molding simulation and mechanical simulation by interfacing with both types of software. It allows for 3D-visualization and manipulation of imported models and results and allows for a variety of mapping including fiber orientation, pressures, temperatures, thickness, and stresses and exports the data in a ready-to-use FEA input file. For short-fiber-reinforced parts it provides an anisotropic material model and delivers all necessary prerequisites in order to consider local fiber orientation in a subsequent FEA. Thus the prediction capability of the mechanical FEA can be improved significantly.
