Optimization of a Heat Radiation Intensity on a Mould Surface in the Car Industry
This article is focused on the process of the heat radiation intensity optimization on an aluminium mould surface intended for the production of artificial leather in the car industry (e.g. the artificial leather on a car dashboard). The inside of the mould surface is sprinkled with a special powder and its outside is heated by infra heaters located above the mould, up to a temperature of 250°C. It is necessary to carry out the configuration optimization of the infra heater locations above the mould in such way that the heat radiation intensity on the mould surface is approximately the same. The procedure of configuration optimization of the infra heater locations by use of a genetic algorithm is described in this paper. Experimental measured values for the heat radiation intensity in the surroundings of an infra heater are used for the calculation procedures.
