To display the chronological history of the filling behavior of an injection molded part, the dosage volume is extended in the injection molding machine from shot to shot until the cavity is completely filled.
The different filling percentages explain, which area is filled at which time and give hints on the process and possible optimization.
All shots with different filling percentage collectively are called filling study.
In injection molding simulation the filling study is an inherent part of the displayed results.
