Multi-component molding is one of the greatest methods to diversify the development of the plastic molded product fabrication. Moldex3D MCM simulates the multiple components molding process, including insert molding, overmolding and multi-shot sequential molding. Based on true 3D technology, explicit analysis capabilities of Moldex3D MCM give you a powerful tool to accurately analyze the interaction behavior of different components and further optimize product design. Moreover, this module helps you to predict the warpage due to property mismatch of different materials, prolonged cooling time and unsymmetrical shrinkage in two-color or overmolding processes…etc.


  • Simulate insert molding, overmolding and multi-shot sequential molding process
  • Evaluate melt flow and flow pressure around plastic or metal inserts
  • Evaluate the effect of insert material in mold cooling performance and insert temperature distribution in the molding process
  • Evaluate the interaction effect of part inserts and parts in warpage
  • Evaluate the mechanical property (fiber orientation) effect of part inserts and parts in warpage analysis
  • Detect thermal degradation problem of plastic components due to reheating by hot melt flow
  • Predict temperature variation within the inserts during the molding process
  • Employ parallel computing technology to enhance computation speed and extend analysis capability
