    FEA analysis on an injection moulded part with metal inserts

    Kris Jones

      Hi all,

      I am trying to run an FEA analysis on an injection moulded part. In order to hopefully reach the required strength it has 4 steel strips moulded into plastic beams.

      What connection type should I use for this?

      The strips are seperate solid bodies and extruded through the beams, no space or hole in the beam.

       

      I have tried creating a slightly larger holes 0.001mm all round so the strips would have a pocket to sit in and tried non touching - No penetration with no luck.

       

      Any help would be great.

      I cant share the file though as its under a NDA

       

      Thanks
