Make Better Design Decisions with the Right Material Information

Material Hub Cloud (MHC) is a cloud database powered by Moldex3D Material Measurement Center and suppliers with most up-to-date material information, containing three key features – Material Database ViewerMaterial Selection Guidance and Alternative Material. In the easy-to-use interface, you can quickly sort through over 7,000 materials to find your best option. The Alternative Material search function also helps designers and engineers to find ideal materials quicker, reducing project times and improving communication with customers. It also provides tools to search for less expensive, alternative materials that may have suitable properties for the application.

MHC is a web-based platform. You can access all the data wherever and whenever you need. For product designers, MHC helps evaluate material properties and molding conditions to filter out suitable materials. For Moldex3D users, MHC is an extension of the current simulation material database, providing detailed analysis of each material. A quality index is provided showing the extensiveness of testing performed for each material and suitability for simulation. 

 

Material Database Viewer

MHC runs strict inspections on every characterized material to ensure each has the accurate information, such as individual physical property inspections, multiple physical property cross-checks, criteria definitions, etc. It also allows users to check plastic mechanical properties, processing curves, and process conditions to learn more details.

Material Quality Index

The MHC data quality is measured by integrating data sources, measurement methods, and data compatibility for six key physical properties. A Quality Index is provided for each material grade allowing users to quickly evaluate materials, saving time on early design decisions while gaining confidence in the simulation accuracy.

Alternative Material

Select the right material in the design phase is crucial to reduce the failure rate in production, while finding alternative materials is key to maintain mass production speed. To achieve these goals, MHC helps you find a list of alternatives by defining physical properties or processing conditions. You can also determine the best alternative material by running similarity analysis.

The examples below are three alternative materials picked out by Alternative Material Function in similarity analysis to carry out Moldex3D simulation. From the distribution result of the sprue pressure, the least similar material has the biggest pressure difference compared to the original material.
