Robust Design of Gate Locations and Process Parameters for Minimizing Injection Pressure of an Automotive Dashboard

Kim, Kwang-Ho,Park, Jong-Cheon,


In this paper, multiple gate locations and process conditions under concern are automatically optimized by considering robustness to minimize the injection pressure required to mold an automotive dashboard. Computer simulation-based experiments using orthogonal arrays(OA) and a design-range reduction algorithm are consolidated into an iterative search scheme, which is then used as a tool for the optimization process. The robustness of a design is evaluated using an OA-based simulation of process fluctuations due to noise as well as the signal-to-noise ratio. The optimal design solution for the automotive dashboard shows that the robustness of the injection pressure is significantly improved when compared to the initial design. As a result, both the die clamping force and the pressure distribution in the part cavity are also much improved in terms of their robustness.
