This project deals with design and simulation of cooling channel for designing n.vo plate mould of body hair dryer part by using CA TIA software and transfer the 30 model into Autodesk Moldflow Insight software. The objective of this project is to design a new architecture of cooling channel and simulate by using Autodesk simulation Moldflow Insight 2014. Other than that is to compare between conventional straight cooling channel and the new architecture of the cooling channel. The design of the product will be analysed using Autodesk simulation Moldflow Insight 2014 to reduce the defect that appears during the injection moulding process. Besides, in the injection moulding process, the cooling channel performance is one of the most crucial factors because it has a significant effect on both production rate and the quality of the plastic part. In order to reduce the cycle time, and control the uniform distribution of temperature, it is necessary to create the new architecture cooling channels, which conform to the shape of the mould cavity and core. This project presents a simulation study of different types of cooling channels in an injection moulded plastic part and compares the performance in terms of time to reach ejection temperature, volumetric shrinkage, temperature profile, circuit coolant temperature and part defect determine which configuration is more appropriate to provide uniform cooling with minimum cycle time. Autodesk simulation Moldflow Insight 2014 software is used to examine the results of the cooling channel performance.
