Moldflow Announces the Release of Moldflow Structural Alliance 1.1

FRAMINGHAM, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 3, 2007— Moldflow Corporation (NASDAQ: MFLO), the leading provider of plastics simulation software that empowers more users to optimize more designs across their enterprise, today announced the release of Moldflow Structural Alliance(R) (MSA(R)) 1.1. MSA 1.1 will allow users of ABAQUS(R) and ANSYS(R) (2 of the world's leading structural analysis products) to expand the universe of plastics parts that they can more accurately analyze to improve product quality.

MSA 1.1 delivers new technologies and key enhancements that make it even more suitable for broader implementation because true 3D simulation results from Moldflow Plastics Advisers(R) (MPA(R)) or Moldflow Plastics Insight(R) (MPI(R)) can be mapped to ABAQUS and ANSYS models. This expands the universe of supported geometry to include relatively thick and solid plastic parts which are best analyzed using 3D technology.

Using MSA 1.1 allows ABAQUS and ANSYS users to improve the accuracy of the analysis of assemblies that contain plastic parts. Regardless of the number of components in the assembly, or the number of different materials used, MSA 1.1 will map highly accurate plastics material property information to the correct individual plastic component in the assembly in ABAQUS and ANSYS, significantly improving the quality of the structural analysis. Finally, a brand new import/export wizard makes it easy to export models and link Moldflow results to the structural model, resulting in increased user productivity.

"Because the structural integrity of plastic injection molded parts is largely determined by the manufacturing process, it is critical to account for those effects when performing structural analyses," said Murali Annareddy, Moldflow's Director of Product Marketing. He continued, "As more companies get serious about optimizing their product designs, there is a convergence of simulation where analyses are run across a variety of computer-aided engineering applications. Of course, the ultimate combination occurs when an innovative product such as MSA is used to help predict not just if a product will be strong enough, but as manufactured, will a product be able to perform in its end-use application without failure."


MSA 1.1 is available now. For more information, please call Moldflow in the US at +1-508.358.5848 or visit
