Text Overlay: Optimize plastic parts, injection molds, and the injection molding process with injection molding simulation tools.
With the use of plastic parts on the rise in almost every industry, and growing pressure to reduce costs and cut time to market, the need for simulation tools that provide deep insight into the plastic injection molding process has never been greater.
Autodesk® Moldflow® software, part of the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, provides plastic injection molding simulation tools for validating and optimizing plastic parts, injection molds, and the injection molding process. Autodesk® Moldflow® helps CAE analysts, designers, engineers, mold makers, and molding professionals discover, communicate, and resolve manufacturing problems early in the product development cycle, so they can design plastic parts and injection molds with confidence.
Companies around the world use Autodesk® Moldflow® Adviser and Autodesk® Moldflow® Insight simulation software to help reduce the need for costly physical prototypes, avoid potential manufacturing defects, and get innovative products to market faster.
Text Overlay: Improve plastic part design with simulation.
Access guidance through simulation setup and results interpretation to see how changes to wall thickness, gate location, material, and geometry affect manufacturability.
Determine potential part defects, such as weld lines, air traps, and sink marks, and then rework designs to help avoid these problems.
Simulate the filling and packing phases of the injection molding process to help predict the flow of melted plastic, fill mold cavities uniformly, and achieve higher-quality manufacturing.
Correlate the digital prototype to real-world processing conditions with a high degree of accuracy, determine the cause of potential problems, and help take corrective action.
Text Overlay: Perform accurate simulations with precise material data.
More easily evaluate various material candidates and have confidence in the simulation results through access to more than 8,500 grades of commercial plastics with up-to-date and accurate material data.
Use state-of-the-art plastic material testing services, expert data-fitting services, and extensive material databases with Autodesk® Moldflow® Plastics Labs.
Text Overlay: Work in a multi-CAD environment.
Import and mesh solid geometry from Parasolid®-based CAD systems, Autodesk® Inventor® software, CATIA® Version 5, Pro/ENGINEER®, and SolidWorks®, as well as IGES, ACIS, and STEP universal files.
Save time when preparing models for simulation with geometry support ranging from thin-walled parts to thick and solid applications, helping to consider multiple design iterations and experiment with what-if scenarios.
Text Overlay: Optimize collaboration within the design team.
Quickly prepare simulation results with automatic reporting tools, and easily communicate with customers, vendors, and team members.
Use Autodesk® Moldflow® Communicator software to interactively review simulation results with manufacturing personnel, procurement engineers, suppliers, and external customers to help reduce costly design changes and manufacturing defects.
