Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer

Fast, Easy Accurate & Affordable Extrusion Simulation

What is Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer

Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer (formerly Click2Extrude Polymer) software is a simulation based environment designed to help polymer extrusion companies meet the ever increasing demands to produce complex profiles with tight tolerances, quality surface finishes and high strength properties at reduced cost. Click2Extrude Polymer is a virtual press where users can visualize material flow and temperature inside a die during extrusion and make necessary changes to ensure balanced flow, while identifying and eliminating product defects.

Why Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer

Improve Extrusion Quality

Using Altair Inspire Extrude Polymer, users can create virtual die trials to determine and eliminate any and all potential issues in die design to help correct them prior to any production or die design.

Improve Productivity

Identify potential causes of production failure and rectify them upfront to optimize process conditions and increase productivity.


Through a highly intuitive interface, users can benefit from a quick ramp up in detecting extrusion defects early, resulting in both cost and time savings.
