Software Release Enhances Reverse Engineering, Improves Mold Maintenance and Eases Conformal Cooling
The latest release of VISI software includes an extended direct interface to multiple portable measuring arms and scanning devices, ejector pin labeling functionality and advanced sketching of conformal cooling channels.
VISI 2019 R1 from VISI software introduces an extended direct interface to multiple portable measuring arms and Leica scanning devices from Hexagon to boost its reverse engineering capabilities. This, together with the enhanced dedicated module, provides the ability to generate casting and stock models from VISI’s existing modeling and machining environment.
The new ejector pin labeling functionality, which has been specifically produced for plastic mold designers, enables all the ejector pins in a mold design project to be identified in a table by a user-defined label, simplifying the mold maintenance process. This function identifies any ejector pin for maintenance purposes and updates it if it needs replacing.
VISI 2019 R1 introduces a function for advanced sketching of conformal cooling channels. It allows the use of wireframe circuits, previously created in CAD, along with selecting predefined or user sections, and automatically creates the conformal channels to form the desired cooling circuit.
Complex core system design and verification.
A look at how taking the time and data to analyze a mold problem will help you repair it right—and permanently—the first time.
The pressure on the supply chain is unrelenting for all things faster, better and cheaper. For moldmakers, getting molds built right the first time is critical to meeting these increasing demands. But how?
