Polydynamics Inc. has released Nextrucad 1.0, the single-screw extrusion simulation package from the company in Hamilton, Ontario.
Nextrucad simulates solids transport, melting and metering in single-screw extruders. The software also predicts the solid bed profile, pressure buildup and bulk temperature along the screw axis, along with the extruder output, power requirement, torque and average residence time.
Polydynamics said Nextrucad is a successor, rather than an update, to its earlier simulation software package called Extrucad.
