SolidThinking® Click2Extrude™

Metal and Polymer are simulation based environments designed to help metal and polymer extrusion companies meet the ever increasing demands to produce complex profiles with tight tolerances, quality surface finishes and high strength properties, at reduced cost.

Click2Extrude Metal and Click2Extrude Polymer are virtual presses where you can visualize material flow and the temperature inside a die during extrusion.

Make the necessary changes to ensure balanced flow while identifying and eliminating product defects.

Thermal Stability:

The tooling system is an important factor that influences a tools life expectancy and level of quality.

Fluctuations in tooling temperature will introduce defects such as surface cracking in extruded profiles.

The uneven thermal expansion will affect the press alignment. It changes the clearance between dummy block and liner; resulting in variable skin thickness and alloy build up.

Product Detail

The new featured-packed release of solidThinking Click2Extrude 2017 includes the following key benefits:

solidThinking® Click2Extrude™ Metal Extrusion Simulation

Improve product surface quality by early detection of visible defects such as:

  • Profile distortion
  • Uneven wall thickness
  • Die pickup lines (streak lines)

Improve product mechanical properties by early detection of invisible defects such as:

  • Charge weld between multiple cycles
  • Seam weld in hollow profiles
  • Skin defects (backend defects)
  • Accurate grain size prediction

Improve profitability and maintain production schedules by early detection of:

  • Incorrect bearing lengths and automatic bearing length optimization
  • Die deflection
  • Dummy block failures
  • Container line expansion
  • Die wear and excessive heating
  • Improper thermal management

solidThinking® Click2Extrude™ Polymer Extrusion Simulation

Improve product surface quality by early detection of visible defects such as:

  • Profile distortion
  • Uneven wall thickness
  • Die swelling
  • Overheating

Improve product mechanical properties by early detection of invisible defects such as:

  • Dead zones
  • Weld lines in coextrusion
  • Overheating of polymers
  • Mechanical degradation due to premature curing

Improve Profitability:

  • Push production rate by optimizing process parameters upfront
  • Detect and fix die deflection, clam shelling and die deflection
  • Detect and decrease die wear and excessive heating
  • Minimize pressure fluctuations inside die to maintain uniform flow and consistent production schedule

Minimal training with maximum benefit

  • By focusing on ease of use and managing all complexities in the background, Click2Extrude eliminates the costly and time-consuming training most other extrusion simulation software requires.
