    Features

  • Flexible cloud solving options

    Use Simulation Moldflow Flex to solve locally or solve in the cloud while you continue working.

  • Gas-assist injection molding

    Simulate the gas-assisted injection molding process to optimize gas entrance position, delay time, pressure profile, and packing time.

  • Lightweighting manufacturing validation

    Validate the manufacturing process for lightweight component manufacturing and ensure that your components can be manufactured, meet specifications, and function as designed.

  • Microchip encapsulation

    Simulate the mold filling and curing of the microelectronic device. This includes predicting the wire sweep deformation of the bonding wires, as well as the paddle shift or deflection of the lead frame due to flow behavior and pressure imbalances.

  • Birefringence

    Use Simulation Moldflow to reduce or eliminate optical quality issues, such as the blurring or double images. Birefringence is influenced by many factors, including the material, mold design, and molding conditions. Predict optical performance issues in plastics.

  • Defect visualization

    Examine defects to determine what’s happening within the manufacturing process, as well as the impact of filling patterns, shrinkage, sink marks, and warpage. 

  • Shrinkage and warpage

    Evaluate plastic part and injection mold designs to help control shrinkage and warpage based on grade-specific materials and processing parameters. Generate accurately compensated models for tooling or further geometry modification.

  • Advanced cooling

    Capture advanced cooling techniques and layouts, such as conformal cooling, as well as transient heat calculations. 

  • Fast, accurate, easy use

    Simulation Moldflow processing is fast and accurate, and included real-time, dynamic Adviser wizards to help you make the best design choices.

  • CAD interoperability

    Easily import native CAD, CAD translations, and neutral files.

  • Meshing flexibility

    Using multiple mesh types provides you with options to match the mesh type with your application, so you can improve speed and accuracy.
