Improving tool room productivity through automation
Design-to-manufacturing solutions for the tooling industry
Tool design and manufacture is on the critical path for the development of many products. The demand for shorter product delivery times, faster turnaround on design enhancements, lower supplier costs and increasing global competition have dramatic impacts on the tool-making business. The complexity of tool design and manufacture traditionally requires highly skilled people applying knowledge learned over years of practice. These resources are difficult to obtain or replace. Companies can gain competitive advantage by effectively leveraging specialized, best-practice knowledge in tooling development.
This seminar will cover key challenges faced by the tool makers and how NX™ software helps address these challenges. There are two parts that the seminar will cover.
