The injection molding process highly depends on temperature.
If the molten plastic enters the cavity the temperature is high and sequentially decreasing overtime.
The reduction in temperature is based on the given cooling layout of the mold and the process parameters set.
In simulation the temperature result shows temperature distribution of the part and mold at current instant.
It can help to evaluate temperature related aspects of the process, for instance, hot spot.
