Mold-Masters Ltd. has begun marketing two-dimensional flow-analysis software to provide quick, cost-effective injection molding data.
Fillplus, a Windows-based program, can help part designers determine cavity pressure losses and maximum flow lengths of materials. Mold makers can use the software to optimize gate size and determine suitable hot-runner components and runner balancing.
The Georgetown, Ontario, firm said it offers a demonstration version of Fillplus on disk and through its World Wide Web site at http://www.moldmasters.com. It markets Fillplus through a technical partnership with Plastics and Computer International srl of Milan, Italy. Mold-Masters said it now offers 2- and 3-D flow-analysis services to the injection molding industry after several years of internal experience.
