Abstract

We investigate simulation approaches for the modelling of the primary shaping processes micro powder injection moulding and micro casting. We could reproduce the segregation during micro powder injection moulding (MicroPIM) with a simulation using particle methods. The phase field method allows for accurate prediction of the dynamics of solidification of a melt, whereby model order reduction is used to limit the computational effort. The results give valuable advice for the process conduct and the dimensioning of the micro parts.
