Coretech System of Taiwan says its new Moldex3D 2020 solver averages 30% faster calculations than the preceding R17 version with the same computing hardware. The latest release of the mold analysis software was tested on different high-performance computing platforms with eight, 16 and 32 cores and on mesh models with 5 million, 12 million and 20 million elements. One example is shown here.

  • New Runner-Design Concept Boosts Quality & Productivity

    Why 'naturally balanced' multi-cavity molds sometimes refuse to fill evenly is a mystery that eluded solution—until now. A simple concept called the MeltFlipper allows molders to increase cavitation and maximize output of quality parts.

  • The New Dimension in Mold Simulation

    Keep an eye on the increasing prominence of so-called “3D” mold analysis. Two vendors of simulation software from Europe and Asia think it’s the best solution for a big proportion of injection molded parts. Established U.S. suppliers aren’t so sure. In any case, the capabilities of both 3D and standard 2.5D simulation are expanding rapidly.

    Specially tailored packages of 3D computer-aided design software have been available to injection mold designers for at least a decade.
