I wonder about how to predict stack mold clamp force.

 

also wondering ask you about how to present that result(clamp force : XY plot) in synergy.

 

please answer to me, if anybody know that.  thanks.....

There is a check box on the properties of the dialog for editing elemental properties "Exclude from the clampt force calculations". Use it to exclude all the cavities but the last one, the closest to the movable plate of the molding machine.

thanks for your answer.

 

I aleady know that method, but I think between upper part and lower part are not exactly same that method is not true.

 

If Upper part and Lower part is not same, what can I do???

As Mr. Alex explained, that is the only method available now. 

 

"There is a check box on the properties of the dialog for editing elemental properties "Exclude from the clamp force calculations".

 

Use it to exclude all the cavities of all levels, which  having smaller projected area.

 

Then only those  level cavities, which having larger projected area will be used for clamp tonnage calculations
