To keep up in a competitive market, Honeywell Aerospace is lightweighting parts without sacrificing strength with the implementation of Autodesk Moldflow.
"This job was complex due to the fact that the part can¬not be modified structurally because that would affect its integrity. Reducing a part warpage was an important aspect in order to keep precision within the limits to ensure a proper part assembly. However, it was challenging to control or eliminate the defect merely based upon the experience and molding knowledge. To make a confident decision, a specialized tool like Autodesk Moldflow is a must."
— Mr. Ramaiah Chowdary, Sr. Engineer – AERO AME-VE MECH ISC, Honeywell Aerospace
To deliver competitively priced, high-quality plastic parts quickly, Primera Plastics relies on Moldflow software. Using the Autodesk solution enables Primera Plastics to produce more accurate quotes for prospective customers and optimize injection mold designs prior to manufacturing.
“Autodesk Moldflow, we rise above competitors who are not able to conduct the same level of validation before production"
— Scott Leatherman, Project Engineer, Primera Plastics
Providing analysis services for injection-molded plastic parts, Rheomold offers Moldflow services to validate customers' product, mold design, and their molding process. They provide specialized solutions for automotive applications, such as interiors, exteriors, and power train plastic parts.
“Autodesk Moldflow effectively eliminates the use of trial and error method by validating and optimizing the design of plastic before production. This not only improves the quality but also helps us to guide our customers in the selection of machines and in production planning.”
— Krishnamoorthy, Director, Rheomold
Minda Industries Limited uses Moldflow to ensure an aesthetic switch without compromising on product strength.
“Using Simulation Moldflow, we get an accurate representation rather than an appoximation. It is easy to verify problems and fix them in early development stage so that we get the right components in trial 1.”
— Shrihari B. Rasal, Asst. Manager, Tool Design (Moldflow), Minda Industries Limited
Forteq uses Moldflow for product development because it helps identify important specifications at an early state—e.g., the ideal injection point, materials, and wall thickness. Potential problems are detected well in advance and long before the respective injection molding tool is manufactured, saving both time and money.
“We have been using Simulation Moldflow for about ten years. Back then, it was the only sensible product on the market. Today, it is basically the standard tool for simulations.”
— Beat Schiegg, Head of R&D, forteq Nidau AG
Moldflow Insight provides Automotive Lighting Reutlingen GmbH with an intuitive user interface and generates reliable results.
“Using Simulation Moldflow Insight, we can reduce the number of trials, saving one or two iterations at a cost of €4,000 each. In total, we have approximately 50 projects each year.”
— Roland Hölz, Dipl.-Ing. (FH), Automotive Lighting Reutlingen GmbH
