Moldflow Trainings

Our trainings lasting several days form the base of your individual Moldflow expertise. Here you will learn the basics of the software and the injection moulding process. Thanks to the structured approaches being taught, you will be efficient in handling and operating the corresponding expansion stage of your Moldflow product and be confident in interpreting Moldflow results correctly. We provide all trainings online and in our training center in Darmstadt.

We are officially accredited as an Autodesk Training Center!
