ORACLE MANUFACTURING'S ENGINEERING INNOVATION FACTORY
In today's competitive market, an Integrated Product Development (IPD) environment is required to reduce time-to-market and product development costs while at the same time, increasing product quality and performance. In order for simulation technology to be relevant - that is, to have an effect on the design prior to committing to tooling and manufacturing, the right processes, people, and tools need to be in place. Oracle Manufacturing is your total solutions provider for all of these services.

CAD Technology Computer Aided Design technology is a form of automation that helps designers prepare drawings, specifications, parts lists, and other design-related elements using special graphics- and calculations-intensive computer programs. The technology is used for a wide variety of products. Although CAD systems originally merely automated drafting, they now include three-dimensional modeling and computer-simulated operation of the model. Rather than having to build prototypes and change components to determine the effects of tolerance ranges, our engineers can use computers to simulate operation to determine loads and stresses.

Finite Element Analysis

Oracle Manufacturing provides detailed engineering and analysis services for today's highly technical industries. Beyond classic analytical techniques, our experience in engineering analysis incorporates many fields in both linear and nonlinear Finite Element Analysis (FEA). From complex weaponry assemblies to miniature medical implants, we provide accurate solutions to engineering problems in a timely and cost efficient manner.

Linear Analysis - Oracle Manufacturing performs concurrent linear analyses to supplement our clients' design and production efforts. We work with clients to establish models and verification tests that reflect the real world system in question. Linear models provide the most cost-effective insight into the behavior of your system. Oracle Manufacturing uses existing 2D or 3D geometry from a variety of design software platforms, and can create new models when necessary.

Nonlinear Analysis - Oracle Manufacturing's capabilities include the more difficult area of nonlinear and transient analysis. Many engineering problems exhibit nonlinear behavior that cannot be accurately simulated by a simple linear model. These problems typically include nonlinear materials such as rubber, plastics, and composites, large deformations, creep, multiple body contacts, transient loads, and boundary conditions. Proper iteration control techniques and convergence criteria must be established to ensure accurate results and efficient solution response times.

Design Optimization - Oracle Manufacturing offers design optimization through methods using FEA and automated geometry/constraint software. Often, the best design solution for a problem is a balance between competing requirements, such as weight and strength. Automated iterative FEA can help find the best solution without arduous manual iterations or physical prototypes.

Solution Verification and Validation - Verification of FEA solutions against classical analytical calculations is a core philosophy in Oracle Manufacturings analysis services. We calibrate our models against available empirical test data, simplified models, and classical calculations to ensure required solution accuracy.

MoldFlow Simulation

Oracle Manufacturing employs powerful Moldflow techniques to simulate the plastic injection molding process, this enables us to ensure the quality and efficiency of our injection molding process.

MoldFlow simulation is usually conducted during the product design stage and the early stages of the tool design. This helps reduce or eliminate many of the problems associated with commissioning an injection mold, before construction and major investment in the tooling has even begun.

The processing characteristics of the plastic injection or die cast tools are investigated during the course of the Moldflow simulation allowing optimization of the part and tool design by adjusting areas such as gate positions, wall thickness and cooling parameters to help you achieve success.

A Mold Flow simulation highlights most quality problems including: High Fill Pressure, Short Shots, Weld Lines, Gas Traps, High Gate Shear, Poor Cooling, Long Cycle Times and Distortion.

Oracle Manufacturings Moldflow tool kit includes MoldFlow - Filling, Cooling, Gas Injection and Warpage analysis software for full process simulation. With direct interfaces to most major Cad systems, you have the security of knowing your design is accurately represented.

Supported Cad formats for FEA and MoldFlow include: Pro Engineer, Unigraphics, Catia, SolidWorks, SDRC Ideas, Parasolids, Acis, Step, STL and IGES.
