Certification Level Instructions

Moldex3D Certification levels of Analyst and Expert allow the experienced CAE professionals to demonstrate and validate their knowledge of injection molding, part design and mold design with powerful Moldex3D software. The Certification Examinations are held at Moldex3D HQ and Branches, and Moldex3D Authorized Certification Center (MACC). Contact Moldex3D or MACC to register the exams.

Moldex3D Certification level of Master: Candidates must obtain an Expert certificate and the prepares materials including:

  • Applicants should first fill in the written application form. The content includes outstanding deeds, use of Moldex3D related works, goodwill…
  • The deeds and works mentioned in the application must provide proof and allow the relevant works to be used publicly (official media promotion. advertising printing…)
  • Provide 2 or more recommendation letters (third-party industry executives or academic professors)
  • The content of the above submitted application will be reviewed and decided by the “Moldex3D Master Certification Committee” after the preliminary information is approved

Application Extension Regulations

Moldex3D general certification extension application must meet the necessary conditions and select one of the selection conditions to apply.

Necessary condition

  1. The application for extension of the validity period can be applied for one year before the expiration of the certificate to one year after the expiration; extension cannot be applied after the expiration.
    (For example: 2020/08/01 issuance of the certificate, the valid date of the certificate is 2022/07/31; the extension application will be completed during 2021/08/01-2023/07/31)

Moldex3D Analyst and expert certification course content

Obtaining a Moldex3D Analyst Certificate demonstrates that you have the knowledge necessary to:

  • Validate the proper design of product
  • Know how to achieve the optimized filling
  • Know how to avoid the defects resulted from material, thickness, gate number and gate locations

You also know:

  • The effects of plastic materials and flow behavior on molding and products
  • The basics of product design and length-to-thickness ratio (L/t)

 

Participants of Moldex3D Expert certification must first obtain *Analyst Certificate and the attendance of Moldex3D Certification Courses (MCCs) are prerequisite.

Obtaining a Moldex3D Expert Certificate demonstrates that you have the knowledge necessary to:

  • Solve the defects due to poor mold design
  • Revise the design based on simulation results with the optimization of mold and molding parameters

You also know:

  • The injection molding cycle
  • The effects of process conditions on molding and the product
  • The basics of molding design
