Ludovic® - Twin screw simulation software

Ludovic® is a numerical simulation software dedicated to the corotating twin screw extrusion process (and Hot Melt Extrusion).


Ludovic® uses the components of the extrusion process as being in front of the real machine (geometry, screw profile, material charactersitics, process conditions).

From this data, Ludovic® computes the material flow during the process (computation time <30s).

Additional analysis tools (Design of Experiments, simulations comparison...) bring valuable answers to real extrusion issues involved in industrial topics.




The mean : the analysis of the extrusion process

The input data :

Ludovic® performs an analysis of the extrusion process taking into account :

  • the geometry/screw design

  • the material characteristics

  • the process conditions


Screw feeding



Results comparison


The results : key values for process optimization/control

The description of the product quality :

  • distribution of the termo-mechanical results (temperature, pressure, viscosity...) along the screw profile

  • detailed energy balance of the process

  • residence time analysis


  • Formulation/New material definition (-30% on the real trials)

  • Functioning domain analysis

  • Configurations comparison (process condition/screw design)

  • Scale up

  • Production line optimization


  • Controlling the process

  • Improving the product quality

  • Manage and reduce testing
