Commodore Technology is an industry leader in the design and manufacture of machinery and tooling for producing Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Foam products. Click here to visit Commodore Technology’s website.
In order to increase the service life of their EPS machinery, Commodore partnered with Endesin to better understand the stresses that one of the critical machine weldments experiences while in service. This allowed Commodore to analyze multiple design changes and subsequently find the most effective changes for the desired increase in service life.
The steps used to perform the analysis were as follows:
The analysis was completed using NX Advanced Simulation for pre and post processing and the solver was NX Nastran.
Commodore Technology wanted to increase the service life of their EPS machinery and by partnering with Endesin, they were able to first understand what kind of stresses a critical component experiences while in-service and subsequently determine how different design changes would alleviate these stresses before any physical changes were made.
