Moldflow: The smarter CAE injection mold simulation solution
Autodesk Moldflow injection molding simulation software guides designers, engineers, and analysts to optimize their product design cycle where other simulation software, such as Moldex3D, may miss the mark.
The ability to validate designs quickly and accurately can help minimize delays to the product design cycle. With over 10,000 lab-tested materials in the Moldflow database, any concerns over questioning your results are reduced. Additionally, the theoretical calculations behind the Moldflow solvers, are validated through development case studies and customer partnerships.
Moldflow Insight Ultimate includes over 20 different molding process simulations, including thermoset and liquid silicone rubber (LSR) injection molding, co-injection molding, compression molding, gas-assisted injection molding (GAIM), and foam injection molding (chemical foaming and core-back).
Moldflow Adviser and Insight both include the local mesh and solve option to run local jobs with no need for internet connectivity.
Moldflow Insight solvers can be installed on a seperate machine or server to free up local computers and provide the option of using parallelization, or parallel solver computing, for quicker solve times.
Mesh and run multiple simulations in the cloud simultaneously, while you continue to work on other tasks on your computer. Cloud meshing and solving are hosted through the secure Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform.
Moldflow mold controller process optimization
A major influencer when manufacturing plastic parts is the process conditions. The design of experiments (DOE) and parametric design analysis in Moldflow help injection mold companies manufacture plastics with wide process windows to ensure stable part quality.
The Moldflow software development team look to users for input on features they are developing through the use of periodic releasing of the Project Scandium, the technical preview for Moldflow Insight. It extends simulation capabilities for existing Moldflow subscribers by offering new capabilities, such as warpage analysis for assemblies and tiger striping prediction. The dedicated forum for feedback helps to direct the developers to where accuracy and workflow improvements can be made.
