FARMINGTON HILLS, MICH. — CoreTech System Co. Ltd. has donated $1.625 million to Clemson University's International Center for Automotive Research, including 25 seats of its Moldex3D simulation software products for injection molding.
The gift includes the latest Moldex3D Advanced package and Solution Added-on modules include fiber molding and MuCell.
Clemson is one of the first universities in the Southeastern United States that incorporates Moldex3D into its academic curriculum and training.
Anthony Yang, president for Moldex3D Northern America Inc. in Farmington Hills, said the companies have a responsibility to help academia nurture the next generation of plastics employees. CoreTech Systems is based in Hsinchu, Taiwan.
The donation ceremony was held April 2 at Clemson's International Center for Automotive Research.
“We believe that both Moldex3D and Clemson will benefit greatly from this collaboration and we are confident that this will continue to move forward with efforts from both sides,” Yang said.
The simulation software will help Assistant Professor Srikanth Pilla's research and education efforts in injection molding, specifically on supercritical fluid-assisted foam injection molding.
Clemson President James Clements thanked CoreTech for the donation. “I know that our students and faculty in automotive engineering will benefit greatly from being able to use and learn from their software,” he said.
