Moldflow Corporation, the leading global provider of design through manufacturing solutions for the plastics injection molding industry, today announced the immediate availability of two enhanced manufacturing solutions products, Moldflow Plastics Xpert 4.0 and Shotscope 4.0. New features in both products will help to improve manufacturing productivity and efficiency. Both Shotscope and MPX are part of Moldflow’s Manufacturing Solutions offerings.

MPX is a patented expert system for automating the setup, optimization and control of the injection molding process. MPX 4.0 allows manufacturers to maintain optimal injection molding processing conditions to produce the best quality parts at the lowest possible costs. Enhancements include a new revolutionary viscosity control method that automatically compensates for changes in plastics material flow characteristics during production. A new process setup routine helps determine an optimum injection velocity from the relative viscosity shear rate curve, which is one of the most accurate methods for determining an appropriate starting injection velocity. With these new enhancements users can realize improvements in manufacturing productivity and the quality of plastic injection molded parts. MPX 4.0 also interfaces with current injection molding machine control technology and provides online process correction technology developed exclusively for the plastics injection molding industry.

Shotscope is a critical quality analysis technology designed specifically to prevent defective parts from entering the supply chain. New features for Shotscope 4.0 include automatic part diversion after machine downtime, automatic reject counting of auxiliary equipment and new labor tracking options that allow for swipe card login and multiple operator logon per machine.

“Today’s announcement of MPX 4.0 and Shotscope 4.0 represents our next step forward in improving quality, manufacturing productivity and efficiency for our customers. Most importantly these new tools and technologies help reduce direct and indirect costs for manufacturers,” explained Tim Triplett, Moldflow’s executive vice president and general manager, Manufacturing Solutions.
