New release 6.1 of Moldflow Plastics Insight (MPI) molding simulation software from Moldflow Corp., Framingham, Mass., has a significant new capability-prediction of birefringence, or double refraction, which causes optical defects in lenses. Moldflow says this "breakthrough" will enable mold and part designers to avoid one of the major causes of defects in automotive lighting, magnifying glasses for inspecting medical x-rays, cell-phone display screens, and other lenses. Among other enhancements in MPI 6.1, upgraded interfaces to 3D Ansys and 3D Abaqus finite-element mechanical analysis software now support the export of 3D overmolding and microchip encapsulation models.
