Autodesk® Simulation Moldflow

For every demand – the proper solution

In product development with prototype construction and trial and error method every mistake affects three central targets: Efficiency, short development times, optimal quality. Furthermore current topics like globalization, shorter time-to-market intervals in connection with increasing complexity and demands for function integration make modern simulation tools indispensable.

As seen below, the biggest cost earn could be at quotation stage, Simulation tools allows to find out every risk of product and process before quote stage. After order as seen visually below, loss will increase continuous.
