Moldflow Announces the Release of Moldflow Plastics Advisers 8.1

Simulation software offers plastics part and mold designers powerful new capabilities and productivity improvements



FRAMINGHAM, MA ─ November 20, 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 Plastics Advisers® (MPA®) 8.1, the easy-to-use plastics simulation software that allows part and mold designers to quickly evaluate the manufacturability of their designs so they can achieve the highest quality at the lowest cost in the shortest time to market.

MPA 8.1 delivers new technologies and key enhancements to help users analyze a broader range of parts with true 3D technology, improve productivity with a redesigned user interface, shorten analysis preparation time with powerful and flexible modeling tools, interpret results more efficiently using new results visualization options, and increase collaboration with expanded communication capabilities.


MPA 8.1 features true 3D analysis capability for the simulation of parts with thick, solid regions or variations in wall thickness. Based on Moldflow’s market-leading Moldflow Plastics Insight® (MPI®) technology, the 3D functionality now available in MPA raises the bar for accessibility and ease-of-use. As plastics part geometry becomes increasingly more complex, the 3D technology in MPA allows customers to predict and avoid manufacturing defects before a mold is ever made, saving them costly and time-consuming production delays.

Other key benefits of MPA 8.1 include:

•        Productivity Improvements – A new panel-based user interface streamlines workflow, provides uninterrupted access to models, and increases overall user productivity. New project management capabilities and customizable workspace options allow task-specific user interface configurations to be saved and shared among various stakeholders across the enterprise.
•        Powerful and Flexible Modeling Tools – Runner and cooling channel layouts can be quickly and easily imported from CAD systems or created using new modeling planes, snap tools, and visual cues to aid in precise positioning.
•        Intuitive Results Interpretation – New results visualization options allow for the comparison of results from multiple analysis iterations to realize design improvements and better understand plastics material behavior. New Dynamic Help functionality allows users to quickly understand those results that have the greatest impact on optimizing their part and mold designs.
•        Increased Collaboration - Enhanced report generation capabilities make it possible to automatically generate reports in Microsoft® Word® or PowerPoint® formats in addition to HTML, to easily communicate valuable analysis results across the enterprise.
•        Smart Tools – New and enhanced tools include a redesigned Cost Adviser for detailed part cost analysis and better planning; a new Job Manager that allows users to take maximum advantage of available CPU resources and free engineers for other tasks; and a tool for comparing material properties to aid in selecting the best material for a given application.
