Travis Hunter

Travis graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Plastics Engineering and have worked in plastics industry for ten years. He has designed and analyzed parts for the automotive and most recently the consumer goods industry. He works as a design engineer/analyst. He has designed and tested the functionality of plastic blow-molded bottles, as well as developed the equipment required to manufacture them. He has been responsible for developing the CAE program to its current state.

Travis' expertise extends to simulation of blow-molded containers. He has used FEA and now is using CFD to simulate manufacturing. He is interested in all aspects of CAD and CAE, and I am constantly searching for the newest technology and ideas.

He uses the following software:

  • NX
  • NX Nastran
  • NX Thermal and Flow
  • ANSYS POLYFLOW
  • MSC Nastran SimXpert
  • CNRC Blow View / Form View FlexSim

His articles include:

  • ANTEC 2006, The Effect of Accelerated Aging and Physical Aging on Molecular Weight in Medical Polymers, PLM World 2012
  • A Mold Cooling Analysis Using NX Thermal and Flow, PLM World 2012 (available on the PLM World website for members at http://www.plmworld.org/ NX CAE Symposium 2012)
