Supplying the Automotive industry with plastic injection molds poses challenges unique to that industry, with complex designs, quick lead times and tight budgets. Not to mention the tight tolerances required of molds designed for critical components used in assemblies for items such as air bags, brakes, throttle bodies and solenoids, and various electro-mechanical switches.
Save Valuable Time with the Right CAD/CAM Software
With the right CAD/CAM software, an injection mold designer can save valuable long hours entering critical dimensions for automotive components. The capabilities of computer aided designs can increase capacity so much that a mold designer can take on new business, and drastically improve lead times with current customers. Most OEMs demand CAD/CAM capability of their injection mold suppliers, as the automotive industry is focused on increasing profit margins with quick turnaround, from any supplier.
You have to have a fast response time as a valuable participant in the automotive supply chain. The right CAD/CAM software can increase your value-added services with this important partnership.
Increase Profit Margin with CAD/CAM in Mold Making
With faster response times and increased capacity comes an increase in profit margin. Having skilled design engineers knowledgeable with your CAD design software is vital for increased productivity.
Ease of Modifications and File Sharing
Most leading CAD/CAM software programs allow for ease in file sharing, enhancing advanced quality planning as designers, engineers and OEMs can view and adjust for critical areas. Problematic dimensions are identified quickly and shared all design participants for quick and viable solutions.
