(NASDAQ and TASE: CIMT) announced today that it will be hosting a webinar with MoldMaking Technology magazine on cost-effective approaches to simulating and modifying mold geometry.
Many plastic parts are challenging to mold within tolerance on the first, second and sometimes third shot. A variety of factors affect the shrink and warp of the part. Owing to the traditionally high cost of simulation, many shops still opt for machining the cavity to a steel-safe condition, molding the part and then reworking the mold according to the deformation.
The webinar will explore how some tool shops have found a cost-effective means of simulation and easy modification of the mold geometry.
In particular, the webinar will demonstrate how successful tool shops can:
- utilize cost-effective CAE tools;
- employ advanced warping tools to modify geometry with a deformation compensation percentage;
- use efficient toolpaths with multiple surface offset groups to minimize CAD work;
- provide shorter lead times to their customers; and
- advertise this capability as a value added service.
The webinar will include a demonstration of key CimatronE functionality that can assist tool shops, including the new advanced warping tools that feature in the latest version of the software, CimatronE 11.
