Solutions for Toolmakers

 

  • Are you aware of high costs of material and machine hours and cannot afford errors and consequent lengthy manual corrections?
  • Are you subjected to short delivery times and low margins and thus cannot afford excessive trials and corrections?
  • Do you outsource inspection of first parts out of your tools and experience problems with long response times?
  • Are you lacking resources for tool design for plastics and rubber?
  • Do you have to guarantee for productivity of your tools?

 

We understand and successfully solve the above stated problems!


We cooperate with toolmakers as a development partner by consultancy on process set-up based on desired product appearance and functionality. Our clients thus have an experienced partner who offers solutions to their problems in the early stage of conception and tool design, as well as solving problems in the tool trials phase.

Our range of services for toolmakers:

  • injection moulding simulations – determination and elimination of problems before production of the tool
  • casting and forming simulations
  • tool design and evaluation of your designs
  • warpage compensation in injection moulding tools
  • fast and precise inspection of first samples out of tool (more information)
  • reverse engineering of tools without appropriate documentation and CAD (more information)
  • tool trials on our injection moulding machines (equipment list)
  • training of technical staff (tool designers, technologists, machine operators)
  • tool optimisation and on-site troubleshooting

Sample Project

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

The client had to renew a wore down rotor with knife segments for which they didn't have any documentation. With precise 3D scanning of the original and creation of functional CAD model we provided them with data for production of replacement.

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

The customer has presumed problems with excessive warpage in the stage of tool design. The material is PA66 with 30% of glass fibers. With the help of advanced injection moulding analysis we predicted the trend and values of warpage and thus successfully eliminated the problems.

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Our client has planned a single phase deep drawing process for the presented case, however several doubts about manufacturability arose. The conducted analysis has cleared all doubts.

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

We made a comparative study between experimentaly and numerically determined strength of a fibre reinforced product, which yielded extremely good match of the results from both methods.
