Mahle Filtersysteme GmbH Expands Use Of Moldflow Injection Molding Simulation

HURTH, Germany—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 17, 2007— Moldflow Corporation (NASDAQ: MFLO), the leading global provider of design through manufacturing solutions for the plastics injection molding industry, today announced that Mahle Filtersysteme GmbH purchased an additional license of Moldflow Plastics Insight(R) (MPI(R)) for its development center in St. Michael ob Bleiburg, Austria. While Mahle has been using MPI software for several years in Stuttgart, Germany, the consistently positive results obtained motivated its daughter company, Mahle Filtersysteme Austria GmbH, to invest in an additional software license for its own site.

Andreas Schmedding, Regional Sales Director of Moldflow Design Analysis Solutions in Central Europe states, "Given that Moldflow is the world's most widely used plastics simulation software, we are driven to provide our customers with innovative, technologically advanced and reliable solutions that add value to their operations. We are pleased that Mahle Filtersysteme has chosen to expand its use of MPI as this provides further validation that we are meeting our customer's high expectations."

Kurt Urnik, Manager of Purchasing at Mahle Filtersysteme Austria GmbH adds, "We have used Moldflow products to accomplish projects both with our mother company and with external partners for many years, and have seen the benefit of injection molding simulation and experienced the reliability of Moldflow products. Our decision to setup internal competence for injection molding simulation and to standardize on Moldflow products helps us to secure process planning by simulation at an early stage and to continuously improve."

MPI is a comprehensive suite of software tools for simulating, analyzing, optimizing and validating plastics part and mold designs. Powerful and easy to use, MPI offers a state-of-the-art solution that can be used to simulate nine unique molding processes and is currently used by top manufacturers in the automotive, medical, consumer, electronics and packaging industries.
