25th July 2008 Autodesk® acquired Moldflow®, about plans I informed recently. The transaction is worth a total of USD 297 million.
I wrote then…
Moldflow® today is not only injection simulation software, CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) based on FEM (Finite Element Method) but offers process optimization, management and production control. This acquisition evidence of development in mold and plastic injection production and shows how plastics impact our life. Autodesk® sees it. CAD/CAM/CAE integration will not stop only on this tree systems in the way of full computer integration.
