Automation Software Introduces Built-in Locating System

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: The latest update to XMD mold design automation software introduces automated clamping and built-in locating systems.

XMD presents the latest update to its mold design software, introducing automated clamping and built-in locating systems—a first for the industry, according to the company. The latest update is designed to automatically locate holes required for the FCS system based on the user’s exact specifications of the machine, facility and clamping tool. The system is also built to automate placement of new holes to solids imported from any software for quick placement even at the shopfloor level. XMD says that the software is used widely by mold manufacturers, incorporating the system into CNC machine tables such as FCS, FPT’s Fast Mill and more.
