Beaumont and Autodesk have agreed to lease equipment from the Autodesk Moldflow Material Characterization Lab in Australia to Beaumont Advanced Processing’s Material Characterization Lab in Cranesville, Pennsylvania. The leased equipment will be recalibrated, maintained, and operated by Beaumont and will nearly double Beaumont’s ability to provide material characterization that meets Autodesk’s high standards for their global customers. This comes after Autodesk announced the discontinuation of material characterization services through the lab in early 2024, making Beaumont their preferred laboratory for Moldflow material characterization.

Beaumont Advanced Processing’s Material Characterization Lab Manager Jacob Trott is looking forward to providing a smooth transition for Autodesk customers who choose Beaumont as their vendor for material characterization services. He says, “Since the Ithaca lab transition in 2017, the relationship between the Beaumont Material Characterization Division and Autodesk Moldflow Plastics Labs has been seamless. We have been able to maintain a transparent level of service, offering the same testing packages, and then some. Our flexibility has allowed us to invest heavily in this service, updating essentially every piece of equipment.”

Accurate material characterization data leads to more accurate simulation results, leading to stronger predictions, greater confidence in design manufacturability, decreased time to market, and less time spent troubleshooting. Entrust your material characterization and testing needs to the leading global provider. Explore our available tests and get in touch with our lab today!

Package Descriptions

MPL-150 (Full Characterization)

Autodesk Moldflow Filling, Packing, Shrinkage, and Warpage

This package includes the most comprehensive material testing, and is recommended for those who are looking to have the best possible data for the most accurate simulations in any analysis type. Includes: Shear Viscosity by IMR, Specific Heat (including transition and ejection temperatures), Thermal Conductivity, PvT, CLTE and Mechanical, Shrinkage Analysis (CRIMS/STAMP), Mold Validation. Supplemental Data: N/A

MPL-135

Autodesk Moldflow Filling, Packing, and Shrinkage

For use with a full warpage simulation, but your CLTE and Mechanical data is tested internally. If provided, we will include the CLTE and Mechanical data in your final material file. Includes: Shear Viscosity by IMR, Specific Heat (including transition and ejection temperatures), Thermal Conductivity, PvT, Shrinkage Analysis (CRIMS/STAMP), Mold Validation. Supplemental Data: Mechanical (if not provided)

MPL-130 

Autodesk Moldflow Filling, Packing, Shrinkage and Warpage (non-CRIMS/STAMP model)

Recommended for full warpage simulations for users not using CRIMS/STAMP model. The CRIMS/STAMP model are created from a proprietary shrinkage experiment done for improved shrinkage analysis in the simulation; without the shrinkage experiment, the software will default to the uncorrected residual stress model. Includes: Shear Viscosity by IMR, Specific Heat (including transition and ejection temperatures), Thermal Conductivity, PvT, CLTE and Mechanical, Mold Validation. Supplemental Data: N/A

MPL-125

Autodesk Moldflow Filling and Packing

Recommended primarily for pressure predictions in the mold filling simulation. Further characterization is necessary for more in-depth simulation analyses. Includes: Shear Viscosity by IMR, Specific Heat (including transition and ejection temperatures), Thermal Conductivity, PvT, Mold Validation. Supplemental Data: Mechanical

​MPL-110

Autodesk Moldflow Filling

Most often used for material development, specifically for understanding the affect of formulation changes on thermal and rheological properties. The final material formulation should be characterized further for optimal simulation results. Includes: Shear Viscosity by IMR, Specific Heat (including transition and ejection temperatures), Thermal Conductivity, Mold Validation. Supplemental Data: PvT and Mechanical
