SOFTWARE / Moldex3D / eDsign / Flow
The explicit analysis capabilities of Moldex3D Flow give you deep insight in plastic flow behaviors from macro view to micro view, such as fountain flow, inertia effect and gravity effect. With the power of Moldex3D Flow, you can clearly understand how melt flow progresses, accurately identify where weld surfaces are, and detect short shot problems, etc.
  • Predict the melt front progression to see how the mold fills
  • Predict 3D fountain flow phenomena, inertia phenomena, cavity effects, and viscosity heating effects
  • Predict weld line locations to minimize or eliminate them
  • Predict air traps
