Accelerate the design of the most challenging molds using advanced functionality, step-by-step guidance and associativity with part model to ensure fast response to design changes and quality molds.
Core & Cavity Development
Simplify the design process of core and cavity geometry using the NX's automated functions, which enable you to:
- Use automated shutoffs and parting of core/cavity based on manufacturability considerations,
- design parting surfaces quickly and associatively,
- split mold to accommodate complex slider designs,
- automatically check the core/cavity design for interferences.
Design Change & Propagation Control
Thanks to the associativity with the part model, NX mold design facilitates rapid propagation of design changes throughout the process, from tooling design to machining operations. The Teamcenter software provides a single source of data and process knowledge, ensuring that the entire team works with the correct data.
Design validation ensures that parts, tools, and manufacturing processes have been correctly defined. You can analyze the manufacturability of part designs using tools to check wall thickness, identify undercut regions, and evaluate corner radii.
To validate the mold design, you can check the distances and reliefs in various positions, as well as analyze the requirements for electrodes. You can also extend the mold life with the analysis of resistance and detection of sharp corners.
The motion simulation capabilities allow you to verify the entire range of movements of the mold, including dynamic collision detection.
