INJECTION MOLDING: Updated Mold Simulation Software

Conformal cooling, improved hot-runner simulation, MuCell foam, and more.

The latest release (R13.0) of Moldex3D injection molding simulation software will be featured at NPE2015 in Orlando this month by CoreTech System of Taiwan (U.S. office in Farmington Hills, Mich.). New and updated features include a conformal cooling-channel designer, faster and more detailed hot-runner simulation, filling and packing simulation that shows interior welds and supports valve-gate switch controls during packing, MuCell microcellular foam simulation, and fiber-reinforced material simulation that predicts fiber length and fiber concentration distribution based on both screw-induced and shear-induced fiber breakage.
