As a machine designer today you are constantly facing one very clear but difficult issue: the ever increasing complexity of your product designs. Driven by market demand for new and innovative products with an increasing array of options, product complexity has multiplied exponentially in the last decade. Add the need to apply new technologies before your competitors do, customer demand for faster delivery - and the need to fit more and more capability into smaller and smaller spaces while delivering increasingly functional shapes with optimized material costs - and product complexity becomes almost impossible to manage
With industrial-strength 3D modeling, assembly design, design management, engineering aids, 2D drafting, and sheet metal design, Solid Edge has everything you need to get down to the business of electro-mechanical design.
"Solid Edge enables virtual verification of the assembly. Before, we realized that there were problems very late in the process, sometimes even with the final parts. Other possibilities are also very useful, like calculating part weight, the associative drawing creation which avoids rework."
- Bertrand Houillon Marketing & product dev manager De Dietrich Thermique France
Compared to traditional approaches, Solid Edge provides more freedom and control for evaluating and manipulating shapes in real time. Combined with a variety of process oriented tools for shape design, plastics part modeling, sheet metal, assembly design and drawing creation, Solid Edge delivers everything you need to get down to the business of consumer product design.
Solid Edge design software provides the most complete and capable solutions for jig, fixture, mold tooling and electrode design and manufacturing available in the industry today. Solid Edge offers a proven solution that delivers all the tools needed to meet the increasing pressure on delivery times from your customers. With detailed part and assembly design, process specific applications, scalable data management and 2D drafting, Solid Edge has everything you need to get down to the business of tooling design while meeting the critical delivery schedules you face every day.
Solid Edge boosts design productivity with specialized, process-specific environments for fixture components including sheet metal, weldments, and routed parts like tubing and wiring. These environments provide tailored commands and structured workflows that help you design these components much more quickly than with general-purpose design modeling tools.
Automated step-by-step design process
Solid Edge Mold Tooling leads users through a logical step-by-step approach to create plastic injection molds. The process begins with the automatic application of an accurate shrinkage factor to the molded part. Solid Edge Mold Tooling supports both uniform and non-uniform shrinkage, storing common preferences for future use as you work.
Solid Edge Mold Tooling automatically creates a parting surface to determine correct geometry for the core and cavity, which can be machined directly into the plates or separate core and cavity blocks. The core and cavity blocks are automatically sized based upon the physical part size, using pre-defined preferences that you can override or make adjustments to anytime.
You can easily create a pattern of the blocks for multi-cavity molds, Solid Edge Mold Tooling lets you quickly reorient the individual blocks and automatically center them in the mold base for a balanced runner system.
"With the addition of Solid Edge Mold Design to our existing Solid Edge software, we have been able to rapidly generate mold base components and document the whole process to our standards. We believe that the addition of Mold Design software will increase our productivity which in turn allows us to assist our customers to reduce their speed to market for new products. This improvement is key for the longer term growth and prosperity of both Camtech and the customer base we supply. Solid Edge Mold Design is an excellent design wizard for the Plastic Tooling industry".
