See how Autodesk customers are using Moldflow software for plastic injection molding simulation.
FADO: Molding expert saves times and money with Moldflow
FADO uses Moldflow to simulate optimal cooling designs to ensure part quality and reduce mold cycle times.
"Cycle time is money. This is particularly visible in the case of high-volume production, where reducing cycle times by a fraction of a second translates into viable profits.”
—Jarosław Jaśkowiak, Marketing Director, FADO

Asahi Kasei Plastics: Improves materials analysis
Moldflow Insight helps Asahi Kasei Plastics show customers visually where problems occur and how to avoid them.
"The number one reason we use Autodesk Moldflow is to help customers understand shrinkage and warpage, because the majority of the materials we produce are filled materials. They are more difficult for the customer to predict how they will behave."
—Don Kosheba, Technical Services Manager, Asahi Kasei Plastics
Honeywell Aerospace: Moving from metal to composites
To keep up in a competitive market, Honeywell Aerospace uses Moldflow to lightweight parts without sacrificing strength.
"This job was complex due to the fact that the part cannot be modified structurally because that would affect its integrity. Reducing part warpage was an important aspect in order to keep precision within the limits to ensure a proper part assembly. To make a confident decision, a specialized tool like Autodesk Moldflow is a must."
—Ramaiah Chowdary, Sr. Engineer, AERO AME-VE MECH ISC, Honeywell Aerospace
Providing analysis services for injection-molded plastic parts, Rheomold offers Moldflow services to validate customers' product, mold design, and their molding process. The company provides specialized solutions for automotive applications, such as interiors, exteriors, and power train plastic parts.
“Moldflow effectively eliminates the use of trial and error by validating and optimizing the design of plastic before production. This not only improves quality, but also helps us to guide our customers in the selection of machines and in production planning.”
—Krishnamoorthy, Director, Rheomold
Forteq uses Moldflow for product development because it helps identify specifications, such as the ideal injection point, materials, and wall thickness, at an early state. Potential problems are detected in advance, long before the respective injection molding tool is manufactured, saving 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
Automotive Lighting Reutlingen: Intuitive and reliable
Moldflow Insight provides Automotive Lighting Reutlingen 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
