The idea of this project, benchmarking of the actual injection of the product versus plastics simulation software is to do analysis of the parameters that involved in the plastic injection molding in order to determine the best solution to overcome the problems and defects that occurred in the plastic injection molding. By actual injection processes, the results that can be observed are limited such as temperature, stress and the point of gate that are almost impossible to be analyzed by naked eye. Thus, for such details information the engineer can depend on Computer Aided Engineer (CAE) or Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) tools such as in this case Moldflow, in generating the accurate data of the parameter that has been analyzed. The tools are capable in assisting the designation of the mold and the parts that need to be produced by generates the data that cannot be achieved by doing the actual experiments. Hence, actual injection analysis needs quite a lot of effort to determine the optimal parameters for the injection process by experienced expertise. Try and error method was traditional way in injecting the part into fine product which consumed a lot of time and energy as well as increase the production cost. The result between software simulation and the actual injection might have slight differences because of several factors. The factors can be determined by doing both analyses and comparing the result will generated the data of error percentage of the simulation software to actual injection as same as factors of the error.
