An Integrated Approach to Development And Simulation Manufacturing Processes of Optical Products

Eugeny I. Yablochnikov / Sergey D. Vasilkov / Yuriy S. Andreev / Alexander V. Pirogov / Sergey D. Tretyakov
Published Online: 2015-11-18 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/mper-2015-0040


The engineering management process and automation method for making pilot set of optical polymer parts used in LED systems are considered. Optical system and lens geometry development are realized in Zemax. 3D model and molding tools with further generating of NC coded data are developed in Cimatron E. Pre simulation of injection molding process is realized in Moldex 3D and thermo-mechanical analysis is provided by OOFELIE. 3D printer Objet is used for parts prototyping on different stages of the process. Data and process management are realized with a help of PDM system SmarTeam.
