Internship by SABIC Europe: Technology 3D simulation of thermoplastic injection moulding (CAE)

Department
The Predictive Engineering & Structures Department is part of the Global Technology Automotive organization within SABIC Petrochemicals. This Department aims to increase the value proposition of SABIC resins by providing differentiated engineering solutions to automotive customers, to increase profitability and reduce time-to-market. Continuous improvement to keep a competitive edge is therefore key.

Job Purpose & Responsibilities
Improved capabilities in 3D injection molding simulations give rise to the question what the optimal settings are to predict the fiber orientation and warpage of a (complex) part accurately for long glass fiber filled materials.Your assignment will be to investigate the different fiber orientation models in the software and their parameters to find the most optimal and robust settings to predict the fiber orientation and the resulting warpage. This will achieve by performing sensitivity studies and correlation studies with existing experimental data at plaque level and then on complex automotive parts

Requirements

  • Bachelor or Master student
  • Good knowledge of English language
  • Some knowledge of Autodesk-Moldflow 3D or Moldex 3D software
  • Eager to learn more about simulation techniques, injection molding and automotive applications
  • Good communication skills and able to work independently on defined tasks
