The 3D models of gating system, ejection mechanisms and cooling system of the swtich shell for injection mold are designed by using Pro/ENGINEER software. MOLDFLOW is utilized for CAE analysis. Three schemes are obtained by changing the gate location during the injection molding process. After comparing the volume shrinkage during injection, shrink marks index, filling time and the injection pressure, the best scheme is obtained. According to the optimal scheme, the injection mold is designed. The results showed that simulation analysis method can not only improve the successful probability of mold trial, but also shorten the production development cycle of developing product.
