Why Use CAD / CAM Services for Mold Tooling Design in CATIA
From the mold base to the components, the mold tooling design application can help you design a complete injection mold using user-defined and standard catalogs. To get the most out of this application, you should consider using CAD / CAM services for mold tooling design in CATIA. CAD / CAM services ensure complete tooling process coverage for mold tooling injection designers.
Based on their know-how of mold tooling design, CAD / CAM services can quickly design a mold tool. Additionally, they can ensure wall thickness uniformity and proper cooling of plastic parts. Moreover, they can address issues such as shrinkage and mold removal. Product quality depends on the accuracy of mold design. CAD / CAM services have the tool that specifically covers these practices.
CAD / CAM services specifically respond to the needs of the businesses requiring mold tooling injection designs. CAD / CAM services use a predefined layout to insert and manage several inserts in a positioned mold base, which greatly enhances productivity. Additionally, they use a dedicated live command to fit the dimensions of the tool to the prints.
CAD / CAM services use the recommended configuration to create standard plastic mold bases coming from suppliers in one-shot. Additionally, they can generate cooling circuits in the mold base, thanks to an ergonomic command in CATIA. This ensures design productivity. Following are some of the benefits of using CAD / CAM services for mold tooling design in CATIA:
- Checking validity of imported topology
- Reusing existing data extensively with powerful recognition tools
- Identifying and defining Slider Pulling Direction
- Detailing molding areas
- Checking accuracy and improving quality of imported shapes
- Optimizing and reducing cycle time with wall thickness analysis
- Accessing supplier equipped mold bases and components catalogs
- Creating standard or company-specific mold bases with ease
- Increasing mold quality and reducing cycle time
- Working faster with the creation of reusable tooling components
From the above, it is evident that using CAD / CAM services for mold tooling design is beneficial. CAD / CAM services can ensure the design of complex molds, together with associated drillings, in a highly productive and intuitive environment, with full associativity to the molded part and kinematics capabilities.
