The greatest challenge facing manufacturing engineers today is finding time to improve quality, speed, and innovation in moldbase design and detailing. The solution that the world’s most successful moldmakers turn to is PTC Creo Expert Moldbase Extension (EMX).
PTC Creo Expert Moldbase Extension (EMX) is an indispensable add-on tool for moldmakers and toolmakers that eliminates time-consuming, tedious tasks and the need for data translation that typically slows down the product development process.
Expert MoldbaseExtension allows users to create moldbase layouts in a familiar 2D environment and automatically generate a 3D model to leverage the benefits of 3D design. The 2D process-driven GUI guides you toward your optimal design and updates automatically during the development of the moldbase. You can choose from a catalog of standard components (DME, HASCO, FUTABA, PROGRESSIVE, STARK, etc.) or customized components. The resulting 3D models are then used for interference checking during mold opening, as well as for automatic generation of deliverables such as production detail drawings and BOMs.
Expert MoldbaseExtension increases design speed because the unique graphical interface gives you quick, real-time previewing before the 3D component or assembly is automatically placed. Once your components are placed, operations such as clearance cuts and drilled and tapped holes are automatically created in the appropriate neighboring plates and components, thus eliminating tedious and repetitive mold detailing tasks. PTC Creo EMX also enables moldmaking companies to capture their own unique design standards and best practices directly within the mold assemblies and components.
If you’re looking to accelerate moldbase design and find more time to development better quality, highly innovative designs, then PTC Creo Expert Moldbase Extension is your perfect solution.
Realize an immediate ROI based on significant productivity improvements
Capture company design standards and best practices directly within mold assemblies and components as you preserve in-house mold design expertise
Enable concurrent engineering between design and manufacturing
Eliminate data translation with a native, fully associative PTC Creo 3D CAD solution
Incorporate late changes in the design cycle easily as modifications update automatically
Reduce the costs of scrap and rework by simulating interferences and by using standard components
Shorten the learning curve using the intuitive tutorials and documentation
Features and specifications
Specialized 2D GUI enables instant customization of moldbases and components
Automatic assembly of components – ‘pick & place’ ease
All necessary clearance holes, threads, counterbores, etc, are automatically added to plates
Part-level features already fully dimensioned
Custom components can be created, saved, and reused
Automatic layers and simplified representations for easy viewing
Standard and nonstandard mold components are marked
Ability to take your customer parts through the complete process
As the assembly is created and optimized, PTC Creo EMX updates the Bill of Materials (BOM) and assembly drawing. Drawings of all assemblies and plates, complete with hole charts, are created automatically. Drawings and BOM layouts are also customizable.
Mold opening and ejection simulation
Mold opening simulation complete with slider, lifter, and ejector simulation, is created automatically. Interference can be checked automatically during the mold opening sequence.
Capture company specific best practices and standards
Company specific best practices and standards can be captured in the catalogs. Employees can modify existing catalog models or create new models based on company accepted standards.
