Due to margin pressure, tool costs are a key basis for product success, both in cost quoting and in tool purchase price research. Early in the product development process, clear and trustworthy information on tool costs is critical.
You can develop reliable tool cost calculations with precise cost breakdowns faster using Teamcenter tool costing. The geometry of a part can be specified either manually or through feature recognition software (NX Feature2Cost).
Tool costing in Teamcenter allows for the parametric computation of various tool technologies such as injection moulding, high pressure die casting, and progressive die stamping. The integrated knowledge database contains reference data such as labour prices, materials, machines, and processes, as well as an integrated process timings, enabling an uniform calculation standard across the organisation.
