Materials Characterisation for Moldex 3D

Moldex 3D

Materials Characterisation For Flow Simulation Software

Gammadot Rheology has over three decades experience characterising both standard & novel grades of materials for injection moulding simulation trials. The company was awarded ‘Characterisation Partner‘ status by Moldex 3D in 2009 see HERE.
