Version 16 of Solid Edge, the company’s 3D CAD system developed for the product lifecycle management (PLM) market, features expanded mold tooling capabilities. The mold tooling application targets plastic mold suppliers that service consumer products and other plastics-dependent industries. This application adds to existing capabilities by automating the design of features such as runner bars, slides, lifters, inserts, water channels and stripper plates, beyond existing core/cavity creation, ejector pins, runners and date capabilities. These enhancements allow the support of various multi-core, multi-cavity plastic injection molds of varying sizes, which include complex, three-plate and stripper-plate molds.
