Matereality® announces interoperability with Moldflow

Ithaca, NY – November 14, 2006 Matereality, L.L.C., a leader in IT infrastructure for secure, global materials information storage and exchange, in cooperation with Moldflow (NasdaqGS:MFLO), has developed an interface to seamlessly pipe in material properties   from Matereality® into Moldflow's injection-molding CAE software. Matereality has also released "MIRO for Moldflow", a search wizard that has been trained to extract material data specific to Moldflow. "Material data should flow into Moldflow as smoothly as the simulated molten plastic! We are very happy to offer this connectivity that Moldflow users have requested”, said Renu Gandhi, VP Business Development at Matereality.

Matereality's web-based data management system can accommodate any property, any material. It is globally deployed and available to registered users anywhere, anytime, providing access to the largest collection of non-linear materials data suited for CAE, including s tress-strain curves; rate-dependent data; viscosity, PVT, Moldflow CRIMS and shrinkage data, thermal properties; and creep, viscoelastic, and fatigue data on plastics, metals, rubber, foam and composites. The data collection is distinct from, but complements Moldflow’s own database, together forming the world’s most comprehensive repository of materials information relevant to injection molding. In addition to providing material data suitable for injection molding CAE, Matereality provides access to plastics material supplier databases, the MMPDS-02 database for aerospace and defense and the NIST Lead-Free Solder Database for the electronics industry.

Russell Speight, Director of Material Technology, Moldflow Corporation , adds, “meeting customer expectations, and surpassing them is important. The ability to seamlessly pipe material data into Moldflow’s products from Matereality has been requested by Moldflow customers, so it’s logical that we meet their expectations”, he also adds “using grade specific data is essential for accurate simulations, so this dynamic link is in-line with the vision of Moldflow Plastics Labs”. Moldflow users can use Matereality to store all their materials information securely and have global access and control over it. They can hide, publish or selectively share data in keeping with their business needs, building collections that form an enduring part of the materials IT of their enterprise. Matereality also can be used to request access to material properties from people and companies that collaborate with each other.   Users   can assess data quality by  reviewing certificates that accompany each dataset before exporting it digitally into Moldflow.
