Solvay Engineering Plastics and e-Xstream Engineering have formed a partnership to open source MMI Technyl Design for automotive OEMs.

Developing and supporting MMI Technyl Design, e-Xstream explains the advanced material modelling platform allies an extremely comprehensive encrypted database exceeding 7,600 files which it says allows for a wide range of calculations when integrated with the injection moulding process modelling.

Peter Browning, Automotive Market Director for Solvay Engineering Plastics commented “China is the centre of automotive market growth worldwide and Solvay’s participation at Chinaplas provided the perfect opportunity to announce this important and exciting partnership. It is another significant step which will encourageautomakers to switch to plastics thereby supporting the industry’s challenges of light-weighting through metal replacement, a domain where Technyl materials lead the field.”

Roger Assaker, CEO of e-Xstream added “We knew we had to aggressively develop and demonstrate the benefits of advanced predictive technology to increase its acceptance and value for customers and to do so have been working closely with Solvay. Together we have developed and validated the technology to create a radically new business model aimed at boosting our customers’ confidence in plastic material selection for metal replacement solutions offering lower production and part costs and, importantly, to speed up time to market.”
