New Blog Series: The Designer's Edge
MoldMaking Technology

Here's to a new year and a new bi-weekly blog series by guest blogger Randy Kerkstra that will offer ways to design and use the mold for effective troubleshooting and for yielding the largest processing window possible. We appreciate Randy's willingness to share his passion for solving problems and lessons learned throughout his 27 years in mold building and molding. We hope this series begins an ongoing dialogue on how mold shops can have a bigger impact on the molding process.

CAD/CAM and Other Software

Design and engineering is essential to building a better and more cost-effective mold with shorter leadtimes. A variety of software is available to help overcome the daily challenges faced with data, quoting, designing and programming—including computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and data management software. CAM is used to generate machining programs corresponding to part designs; CAD is used for detailed engineering of 3-D models and/or 2-D drawings.
