As opposed to its competitors, CoreTech believes it is accuracy that makes good CAE software. CoreTech has developed Moldex3D Solution Packages, bringing up high accuracy and high performance to plastic injection molding industry.
Moldex3D employs the well-established midplane technology. With its superior numerical algorithms, it runs much faster than competitor’s similar products in all analyses. At the same time, CoreTech has devoted to developing a very easy-to-use mesh processor for midplane preparation.
Moldex3D was the first complete suite for true 3D analysis on the market. It was developed with accuracy, speed and parallel computation in mind. For example, it’s the only software that can capture flow imbalance in a geometrically balanced runner system. This implies a very accurate prediction of shear thinning, viscous heating and non-Newtonian flow of plastic injection process.
Moldex3D eDesign offers a quick yet accurate approach for part and mold designers. The easy-to-use Moldex3D eDesign mesh generator makes it easy to generate high quality solid mesh.
All Moldex3D are ready for Windows 64-bit computation. Moreover, Moldex3D supports parallel computing with multiple-CPU PC or PC cluster to minimize computation time.
If your product has uniform wall thickness, like a dashboard or TV front panel, you should use Moldex3D Professional. If your product has very variable wall thickness or is chunky and thick, you should use Moldex3D Advanced. Both Moldex3D Professional and Moldex3D Advanced are excellent for in-depth analysis.
However, if your product does not have significant curved surfaces, you will find Moldex3D eDesign very easy to use and accurate. It’s also the best tool for designers to have quick and accurate checks on their parts.
Depending on the type of desired process, Flow, Pack, Cool and Warp are usually the regular modules for a complete analysis. If you often use fiber-reinforced material, Fiber module is recommended. If you would like to export the process-induced properties for structural analyses, Moldex3D FEA Interface module is required.
If you are interested in using Moldex3D for more complicated processes, such as gas-assisted injection molding, multiple component molding or reactive injection molding, please contact us for further inquiries.
CoreTech has established a robust network of reseller partners around the world. CoreTech’s resellers are not only software sales companies, but companies with good expertise in injection molding. Moreover, CoreTech always stands behind our global resellers to support its customers. If you can’t find an authorized reseller in your region, please contact us through online contact form.
Moldex3D can interface with any mainstream CAD software through IGES or STEP formats. With the powerful CAD functions of Moldex3D Mesh, users can patch or edit CAD geometries very easily. Moldex3D eDesign needs part geometry in STL format.
CoreTech will work with your material supplier for the necessary material data. If it’s not available from the material supplier, CoreTech can provides you Material characterization service upon request. Alternatively, Moldex3D users can sign in www.matereality.com to download necessary data by paying an annual fee.
Metal Injection Molding represents the merging of two established technologies: injection molding and powdered metal. From the process point of view, MIM is very similar to plastic injection molding. As long as the rheological properties of the metal powder and its binder material can be fully characterized (please refer to Material Characterization for details), Moldex3D can simulate its filling, packing and cooling behaviors successfully. However, Moldex3D cannot simulate the debinding and sintering steps of MIM.
