Core & Cavity Development

Simplify the design process of core and cavity geometry using the NX’s automated functions, which enable you to:

  • Use automated shutoffs and parting of core/cavity based on manufacturability considerations,
  • Design parting surfaces quickly and associatively,
  • Split mold to accommodate complex slider designs,
  • Automatically check the core/cavity design for interferences.

NX Design Change & Propagation Control

Design Change & Propagation Control

NX mold design enables quick propagation of design changes throughout the process, from tooling design through machining operations, thanks to the association with the component model. The Teamcenter software offers a single source of data and process expertise, guaranteeing that the entire team works with the proper data.

Design Validation

Parts, tools, and manufacturing processes must all have been accurately defined for design validation to take place. Utilizing instruments to measure corner radii, check wall thickness, and locate undercut areas, you may study the manufacturability of part designs.

You can examine the distances and reliefs in various spots, as well as the need for electrodes, to evaluate the mold design. With the resistance analysis and sharp corner identification, you can also prolong the mold’s life.

You can validate all of the mold’s movements, including dynamic collision detection, thanks to the motion simulation features.

NX Mold Structure

Mold Structure

Design the core, cavity, component systems, and mold base for multi-cavity prototypes and production molds. Utilize mould bases, component systems, and libraries of standard parts to configure the mould. Designing associated sliders and lifters is possible. Insert cooling channels and quickly add and trim ejector pins using parametric patterns. Incorporate runners, gates, screws, pins, and other common parts.

Product Analysis

Modeling the product is the first step in the mold design process. You can choose parts created with NX, load any common CAD file, or import 3D part models from other systems. In order to achieve the required design purpose and manufacturability, you may then quickly model, make design changes, and analyze geometry.

Re-Use of Company Standards

Reduce tool development time by reusing the company’s standards, including:

  • Re-use preconfigured project templates, materials, tools and processes and adapt proven designs to new molds,
  • Accelerate and optimize the mold design process by standardizing processes and components,
  • Automate generation of parts lists, drawings, project data structures, and NC toolpaths,
  • Create re-usable parts and save them in custom libraries,
  • Develop your own re-usable mold base configurations.
