Plastic injection and compression mold simulation

Engineers and analysts use Moldflow® software for plastic injection molding simulation to improve plastic part designs, injection mold designs, and manufacturing processes.

Moldflow features

  • Part optimization studies

    Use automated design of experiments, including model geometry parameters, to determine the best design using cloud or local solving. (video: 1:37 min.)

  • 3D resin transfer molding (RTM)

    Predict the resin-filling pattern for RTM and areas where resin didn’t impregnate the fiber mat to determine product quality. (video: 1:50 min.)

  • Access to cloud analysis

    Run multiple analyses in the cloud, and quickly solve larger analyses without compromising your local resource capacity. (video: 1:51 min.)

  • Chemical blowing agent

    Simulate chemical blowing agents to create plastic parts with an internal foam structure. (video: 1:26 min.)
