The Benefits of Mold Flow Analysis

In this week’s blog post, we’ll be discussing mold flow analysis, and why it’s important to plastic injection molding design projects.

Mold flow analysis (or MFA) uses software to create a simulation of plastic flow, allowing manufacturers to enhance the design of their mold and create a better product.

By conducting mold flow analysis, manufacturers can get a glimpse into how the material they are using will fill the cavity of a mold, and spot possible problems. Creating a virtual version of the mold before the physical cutting begins allows you to make changes and save on production costs.
