Core and Cavity Splitting
Automated core & cavity construction from a solid CAD model, including shut off building using a combination of surface and solid modelling techniques.
While researching specifics for a mold software solution for your shop make sure it is customizable to your design and manufacturing needs. Keep in mind universal file types, part changes, flow analysis, map keys, libraries, quick and seamless translation to the shop floor and availability in one software package that is both affordable and powerful enough to keep up with today’s manufacturing demand, increasing the shop’s bottom line, while keeping engineers productive and designs error-free. Remember too, that available software technicians to answer questions or troubleshoot problems whenever they arise, is a critical component. With the right software you can be assured your shop can achieve its goals and increase its bottom line.
One of the biggest challenges in mold design for silicone molding is the runnerless molding system or cold deck.
This machine tool diagnostic device allows the detection of errors noticeable only while machine tools are in motion.
While both hot runner and cold runner systems have their benefits, for design flexibility as well as reduced cycle times and costs, hot runner systems will probably be the better choice.
