SOLIDWORKS IN THE INDUSTRY

MOULD TOOL & DIE INDUSTRY

How the Mould Tool & Die Industry Uses SOLIDWORKS
Improve & Increase Efficiency

Within the mould, tools and die industry globalisation, the need for tools designers to adapt to customer design changes without affecting delivery time and the increasing demand for more complex products at lower costs are just a few of the Macro Critical Business Issues faced on a regular basis.

SOLIDWORKS' expansive range of integrated product development solutions help your business meet these challenges. Improve and increase the efficiency of the product development process and allow you business to truly develop with SOLIDWORKS.

SOLIDWORKS can offer real solutions to the challenges faced by various members of the production team.

Challenges and Solutions for...

Managing Director - Meet customer demands whilst maintaining budgets and producing reliable moulds.
Challenge
CAD Solution
Ensure customer is satisfied with reliable moulds
SOLIDWORKS mould design features draft angle checking, core and cavity auto generation as well as associative links to the base model to ensure that any changes made filter through to the moulds as required. A series of International Standards are built into the software to ensure moulds are fit for use.
Grow business with expansion into other sectors such as product design.
SOLIDWORKS modelling capabilities are ideal across a huge spectrum of industries with area specific sectors such as plastics, sheet metal and weldments when intense levels of detail are required.
Engineering Manager - Ensure efficient design and manufacturing with correct tooling and costings whilst reducng design errors.
Challenge
CAD Solution
Design and manufacturing must be efficient whilst ensuring forecast estimates remain accurate
SOLIDWORKS powerful design package remains instinctive to use and easy to pick up allowing for design efficiency to be improved immediately. Various Checkers within the software allow you to monitor costs throughout the design process. When necessary previous data can be accessed via SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM to help inform decisions making.
Remove design mistakes prior to production
Check for any design interference with SOLIDWORKS Collision Detection. Associative links between parts, assemblies, drawings and any subsequent bills of materials ensure that should an update be made it is quickly filtered through to remove design errors prior to manufacture.
CAD/CAM integration regardless of CAM system
With over 30 translators SOLIDWORKS is able to translate CAD data from numerous different data formats. SOLIDWORKS partner products such as SolidCAM and CAMWorks allow for CAM prototypes to be generated directly from the original CAD model.
Mould Designer - Confidently create all mould geometry and import and heal data from other CAD packages
Challenge
CAD Solution
Accurately produce all mould geometry
SOLIDWORKS is capable of working with all mould geometry including complex surfaces, large complex assemblies and complex drafts and fillets. Partner products such as SplitWorks, FaceWorks and various other mould design tools enable moulds of various natures to be produced.
Validate design before production
SOLIDWORKS design checkers checks undercuts, draft and wall thickness with ability to run stress analysis on mould.
Import and amend consumer data regardless of original CAD package
With over 30 translators SOLIDWORKS is able to translate CAD data from numerous different data formats. SOLIDWORKS partner products such as SolidCAM and CAMWorks allow for CAM prototypes to be generated directly from the original CAD model.
