In the field of thermoplastic materials, a first accurate
product selection on which the subsequent choices concerning
the productive cycle and the design of the manufactured
article are based, is of utmost importance.
Transformation parameters, mechanical, tribological,
electrical and thermal requirements, and environmental
conditions: all these elements are included in the research
and in the realization of the most suitable products
to be used in the various projects.
Besides technical discussions with the customer, LATI
offers a tailor-made compounding service for the definition
of grades which are studied ad hoc, a complete engineering
study devoted to co-design, and training courses for
the development of technical skills and a sensitivity
to problems connected with the use of polymeric materials.
CO-DESIGN - Project development service
Fluid dynamic simulation
Through the simulation program Moldflow MPI, it is possible
to verify the feasibility of the projects, evaluating
filling, warpage and shrinkage problems deriving from
Moreover, thanks to calculation, the optimization of
the moulding layout and input system, positioning of
the cooling system and the modification of the design
of the part in order to guarantee project tolerance.
LATI guarantees complete support for:
MPI Flow: to study the moulding
cycle, from filling to packing, controlling time, temperature
and pressure. MPI Fibre: to examine the influence
of reinforcement fibres, both in the filling kinetics
and in warpages. MPI Warp: to evaluate the entity
and the origin of shrinkages and warpages, correcting
and limiting them when necessary. MPI Fusion and 3D: to study the
most complicated and non-moldable geometric shapes in
a reliable manner, through the usual midplane approach.
LATI offers complete support in the evaluation of
the mechanical features or manufactured articles,
realized with their compounds, taking into consideration
the influence of factors such as temperature, time,
fatigue and creep.
The simulations carried out c/o LATI take into consideration
the non-linearities present in the mechanical features
of the material in order to ensure the maximum conformity
to the actual reaction of the manufactured article
during filler application.
Design optimization, strengthening and thickness reduction:
all these steps are carried out in order to exploit
the properties of the reinforced polymers as well
as of the injection moulding process.
With the commercialization of thermal conductive polymers,
LATI has decided to replace metal also because of heating
The technical support foresees the simulation of the
phenomenon of the conduction and diffusion of heat into
the manufactured article realized in conductive polymer
in order to evaluate the opportunity of realizing exchangers,
radiators or conductors, so eliminating costs connected
to metal transformation.
LATI characterizes all the manufactured materials c/o
The knowledge of the reaction of polymers and the influence
of external factors on the main properties of the compounds
allow LATI to give all the required information for
a correct use of the product, both for the rheological
aspects and the mechanical and thermal properties.
