Project Control provides the menus to manage mold designs. By providing options to input unique part names, specify pertinent customer information and establish part file working directories, IMOLD for SolidWorks provides the options necessary to define and control any mold design project. Part shrinkage for different types of plastic material is also supported.
From simple planar parting lines to complex free-form parting lines, the Core & Cavity Builder will work with solid models or surface models to develop parting surfaces, while providing tools to patch and delete holes.
The Ejector Design module enables designers to easily add ejector pins to the mold assembly.
This module provides automatic pocketing (for wire-cut and clearance holes), trimming to core surfaces and interference checking with mold components.
IMOLD for SolidWorks provides an extensive set of data preparation tool to prepare the product model for the mold design. With just a few clicks of the mouse, designers can analyze part moldability, check draft angles, identify part problems, and rotate/translate the part into the mold position.
Layout and Feed System Design IMOLD for SolidWorks performs automatic layout for multiple cavity molds with support for balanced and unbalanced layouts.
For maximum flexibility, individual cavities or impressions can be rotated. The Layout and Feed System Design module even provides for a library of commonly used runner and gate types.
Cooling Channel Design
The intuitive user interface of the Cooling Channel Design module enables the creation of fully associative cooling channels.
This module aids the designer in the creation of simple or complex cooling channels while considering actual manufacturing requirements.
The Cooling Channel Design module also allows for interference checking with other mold components and easy placements of cooling accessories like connectors, plugs, etc.
Use the Intelligent Screw System to fasten two or more parts together. Unlike standard CAD systems, designers no longer need to define counter bores, threads and other related parameters before placing screws.
Simply place the screws and all the required pockets and holes are developed automatically - with full associativity!
Mold base design
While allowing for easy customization for one-off use or company standards, IMOLD for SolidWorks creates 3D, solid-based, parametric mold bases from vendor standards.
IMOLD for SolidWorks supports standard mold bases or customized, non-standard mold bases and provides standard components like support pillars, sprue bushing, 2-plate or 3-plate mold bases and more.
Automatic pocketing for screws, pins and bushing, etc. are provided along with lightweight mold assemblies that allow designers to work quickly through designs and implements changes.
The user-friendly Lifter Design module does everything but select your design requirements.
Designers can use this module to select commercially available lifter systems like Uni-Lifters or to add their own custom designs to the lifter library.
Use the Component Gallery to effortlessly insert standard
components into the mold. Any pockets required to facilitate the component are also automatically inserted into the mold assembly.
By using the Intelligent Catalogue Menu System, designers can select design parameters and be presented only with those parts or components that meet the design criteria.
The Slider Design module supports commercially available slide systems, as well as custom designed slides
EDM – Electrode Design
Automated module for designing and managing electrodes and their holders to assist the manufacturing of detailed and hard to machine features on mold and press tools.
IMOLD EDM makes it easy to design 3D solid electrodes from flexible surface extensions. The software offers an easy to follow, step-by-step process and addresses all of the common types of electrodes to the most complex ones.
Automatic Assembly Drawing Creation from 3D Model Assembly.
With only a few mouse clicks, IMOLD will automatically generate Core Half and Cavity Half Drawings of the mold assembly.
IMOLD also provides a very intuitive tool to define the Cross-sectional cutting planes and will automatically generate the Sectional Views of the mold assembly.
