Benefits of Stress Analysis

Stress Analysis has been mainly applied for designers to observe stress distribution inside parts and part inserts. The stress distribution has a significant impact on part quality and structural strength, influenced by many molding factors, including temperature, force, part shape and size, material properties, etc. The stress over safety loading may destroy structural strength and cause breakage on the part. Therefore, obtaining accurate stress analysis results upfront is crucial for designers to reduce fatigue failure and extend product life cycle.
