chillWARE Cooling Simulation

Cooling Simulation for Polymer Processing

Based on the Finite Difference Method, chillWARE Cooling Simulation allows a detailed calculation of cooling processes for extruded plastic products.

chillWARE assists you to increase product quality (e.g. residual stresses, shrinkage, sagging, warpage, degree of crystallization), productivity and energy efficiency of cooling processes. It is also possible to calculate optimized output rates for a given cooling section configuration.
