CAE Services is your source for Moldflow software, training, and consulting - whether you are a molder, an OEM, a tooling source, or a part designer. Since 1988, CAE has been using Moldflow to predict, identify, and solve part design and warpage-related problems before cutting steel. Our staff can evaluate all aspects of the part and mold design - gate size/locations, sequential valve-gate (SVG) timing, identifying weld lines, optimizing cycle times, and applying windage to reduce warpage. We are GM-certified, and we have developed the largest Autodesk Expert-certified team in North America. We have analyzed over 24,000 projects across the following industries - appliances, automotive, and medical (among many others).
As an Autodesk Moldflow Channel Partner, we offer our clients a single point of contact for "Everything Moldflow" - consulting, software, implementation, and training. All of these help to reduce your product-to-market timelines. So, if you are considering a Moldflow Adviser or Insight purchase, already have the software and need more training from our Expert staff, or have warpage concerns with your new part design, we would welcome the opportunity to be of service. Please visit us at www.caeservices.com or call 630.761.9898.
Autodesk Specialized Partners are distinguished by their dynamic capacity, capabilities, proven customer success, and service delivery excellence. Specializations differentiate Autodesk partners based on their proven ability to deliver on desired customer outcomes through three tiers of achievement: Associate, Expert, and Master.
Partners that have achieved a Master Specialization badge have met the highest Autodesk standards of proven customer success and service delivery expertise within a given specialized Autodesk product group.

Windage Success Story
Windsor, Ontario-based Build-A-Mold Ltd. conducted simulation work on an automotive oil pan mold for which it had severe warpage concerns that were based on the company’s experiences with previous molds molded from similar glass-filled nylon materials.
Gate Size and Location to Reduce Warpage
Caterpillar needed to determine the gate location and size with these factors in mind:
1) Flow balance and flow direction
- This is particularly important for the glass fiber filled material used.
2) Gate location and fiber orientation
- Needed the proper gate location for the least amount of warpage, which helps assemble the part more easily.
Circuiting Simulation Saves the Day
When designing a new injection mold, the main goal of Superior Tool & Mold, based in Old Castle, ONT is to put their client in the best position possible to make quality parts consistently and efficiently.
Sequential Valve Gating Solution for a Door Panel
General Motors identified a critical need for determining a proper gating and runner system for a door panel tool. Specific requirements to be addressed included the following:
• Is there adequate spacing between the drops?
• Can the mold be filled with reasonable pressure?
• Can the part be packed adequately within the machine’s clamp force limit?
• Have major knit lines been eliminated or moved into acceptable locations?
• Is the manifold turnover ratio less than 1?
• Is the warpage acceptable?
• Are the shear rates in the gates acceptable?
