Moldflow Corp. has released Moldflow Plastics Insight 6.1, a new version of the plastics design-analysis software.
New features of MPI 6.1 include the ability to predict birefringence (also known as double refraction), which causes optical defects in molding lenses, such as automotive lighting, magnifying glasses and screens on cell phones.
Enhanced interfaces now support the export of three-dimensional overmolding, two-shot sequential molding and microchip encapsulation.
MPI 6.1 also enables exporting a two-layer, aggregated 3-D mesh with results, greatly improving the efficiency of structural analyses.
Moldflow is based in Framingham, Mass.
