Moldex3D Material Hub Cloud (MHC)

Cutting-edge and high-performance material database

The most comprehensive material database for the plastics processing industry

Material Hub Cloud (MHC) is a cloud-based database. Up-to-date material information guarantees high-quality data for processing plastic materials. Easy navigation through more than 8,000 data entries and the search function for alternative materials help designers and engineers find ideal materials faster, shorten project times and make communication with customers much easier.

Easy access by means of a browser

MHC is a web-based platform. You can access all data from anywhere at any given time a without the necessity to install any additional software. MHC assists product designers to evaluate material properties and manufacturing processes in order to be able to filter suitable materials. For Moldex3D users MHC is an extension of the current simulation material database and helps to implement suitable materials for CAE simulation.
