Polyflow accelerates design while shrinking energy and raw material demands to make your manufacturing processes more cost-effective and environmentally sustainable. R&D teams use this technology extensively to design and optimize processes such as extrusion, thermoforming, blow molding, glass forming, fiber drawing and concrete shaping. Design engineers use Polyflow to minimize physical prototyping when manufacturing extrusion dies or to reduce thickness variation to improve the quality of thermoformed or blown products
The capabilities of ANSYS Polyflow are staggering with the amount of information it can handle in regards to generating a mesh and calculating what is needed for a reverse extrusion problem.
What do you dislike?
The UI is not very intuitive or user-friendly. There is little to no indication when the program is loading something so it is very easy to crash it by mistake. It also is rather time-consuming to run due to the amount of calculations involved and still crashes on occasion because of it.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We were using ANSYS Polyflow to generate what die shape would be required in rubber extrusion. There are still some "common sense" modifications that have to be made to the final shape Polyflow generates, but
