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.


Material Quality Ranking:High
Score:over 80%


Material Quality Ranking:Average


Material Quality Ranking:Low
Score:below 60%

 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.

 Material Comparison

Quickly compare the properties of multi-materials with curves and side-by-side data. The scatter plot visualizes the relationship of user-selected material to others.


 Design Calculator

Estimate gate shear rate, runner pressure drop, plastic part cooling time to help mold design and production cycle time. Fiber-Reinforced Plastic Property function could appraise elastic modulus and CLTE based on polymer type, fiber type, ratio and orientation.
