Develop high-quality molds associative to part designs!

Accelerate the design of the most challenging molds using advanced functionality, step-by-step guidance and associativity with part model to ensure high quality molds. NX Mold Design automates the entire mold development process including:

      ·        Core & Cavity Development.

      ·        Part design.

      ·        Design Change & Propagation Control.

      ·        Mold Structure.

      ·        Tool design.

      ·        Motion validation.

      ·        Product Analysis.

      ·        Mold Flow Analysis.

      ·        Design Validation.

      ·     Injection Molding Simulation.

      ·        Re-Use of Company Standards.

Design Jigs and Fixtures with Powerful CAD Tools!

Because jig and fixture designs are fully associative to the part model, you can quickly and accurately update fixtures based on part model changes. You can easily position and mate fixture components with the NX assembly capabilities, and then automatically create drawings and documentation for the fixture and its components. NX offers powerful capabilities in geometric and large assembly modeling, making it ideal for all types of fixture design. NX allows you to:

     ·        Design Fixtures using Advanced CAD.

     ·        Leverage Associativity to Incorporate Design Changes.

     ·        Check for strength and distortion.

     ·        Simulate the kinematics of fixtures, such as opened and closed positions.

     ·        Optimize Fixture Designs.

Automate the design of electrodes

NX electrode design software provides a time-saving, step-by-step solution that automates the entire EDM process from design through production. It can help you manage even the most complex and challenging electrodes.

The electrode design software application in NX streamlines electrode modeling and design for any tool project that requires electrical discharge machining (EDM). It can also:

     ·        Automatically Identify Manufacturing Geometry.

     ·        Define the Electrode Sparking Areas & Blanks.

     ·        Design Undersized Geometry.

     ·        Manage Design Changes.

     ·        Validate the Electrode Design.

Reduce machining time & improve surface quality with NX!

Reduce machining time and save tool costs through an up to four times longer tool life by using NX CAM adaptive milling! Connecting to the cut motions with the new low high transfer moves, makes it even more efficient. The tool does life just slightly in tool axis direction to position the tool for the next cut without scratching the floor. Besides smoothing the transfer move corners, NX CAM can also smooth from the engage and retract motions. Depending upon the part geometry, significant reducing of machining time up to 15 percent can be achieved.
