Which is the Best Injection Molding Software ?
Well, there are a plenty of Injection Molding Software available in the Market today, FYI, its like just another clone of AutoCAD but the clones cannot provide solutions just like AutoCAD does.
What is Injection Molding ?
Injection molding: is a manufacturing process for producing parts from both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials. Material is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into a mold cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the mold cavity. After a product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer, molds are made by a moldmaker (or toolmaker) from metal, usually either steel or aluminum, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part. Injection molding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest component to entire body panels of cars.
Well, for more information visit the Wiki on – Injection Molding
Okay, that’s fine about the Definition of Injection Molding, well what about Machines ?
Well, again I recommend you to visit the Autodesk Wiki – Injection Molding Machine
All fine till here, in the present era of computers there are different companies making computers like Dell, HP and many other small players. Computers are all the same when you go in for configuration as all are assembled from major vendors like Intel, Nvidia AMD and so on, but what matters here is computing capabilities.
As I pointed out above, Injection Molding too can be computed through various softwares available in the Market. Few like Moldex3D, SigmaSoft, Moldflow.
Now the point is which software do I purchase to get maximum benefit and productivity. Again what matters here is how these tools would support the future generation of manufacturing process and reduced lead times followed by increased productivity and reduced manufacturing cost. Well, at this point in time I would recommend Autodesk Moldflow a leader in Molding (Plastic Injection Molding) why is it so ?
Autodesk Moldflow Adviser 2011 software offers the following new features and benefits:
New User Interface
• New Design Adviser
• Material Quality Indicators
• Support for GPU Technology
• Enhanced Structural Simulation of Plastic Parts
• Photorealistic Defect Visualization
• Accuracy and Speed Enhancements for Simulations
• Material Database Updates
• Redesign of Online Help
• Improved Support for Large Models
Improved Support for Large Models Autodesk Moldflow Insight 2011 software greatly improves the stability of the user interface when working with large models in preparation for simulation and then evaluating the related simulation results.
Stability and speed improvements When handling models where memory usage exceeds 4 GB on 64-bit Windows operating systems, the user interface is now more stable during both pre-processing and post-processing operations. Additionally, performance of the user interface has been significantly improved for large selections during model editing.
Improved handling for out-of-memory conditions Autodesk Moldflow Insight 2011 software provides improved handling for out-of-memory conditions when memory limits are reached during results evaluation on 32-bit Windows operating systems. When the available memory is exceeded, you will now be prompted to save your work prior to exiting the user interface.
Autodesk gives you more. Gain access to technical expertise, utilize training and support programs direct from Autodesk, stay up to date with the latest product releases, and give us your feedback. Not only does Autodesk want to help you use Autodesk Moldflow Insight software more effectively but also make sure Autodesk Moldflow Insight software is working effectively for you.

When Autodesk Moldflow can help Microsoft reduce cost and cut time to Market, I’m sure why not it can help your company to even more reduce the workflow and increase productivity
Which technology and software is best in the market is easy to find only from CADProfessor
Well, what about other technologies, I would suggest, see if those have the functions of Moldflow 😉
