Injection Molding Design

Part Design (CAD/PMI)

Part Design

Efficient and Accurate Part Design through CAD and PMI Data

If the CAD model of a part has already been provided with inspection features during design, the 3D measurement planning and inspection can be performed in a drawing-free process directly on the PMI data set (import and evaluation of FTA/MBD data). Furthermore, the full-field geometry acquired by GOM’s non-contact ATOS system allows refeeding and adapting component and tool geometries into existing CAD data if a tool correction is necessary (advanced CAD modeling). The obtained 3D measuring data also serves for the creation of design data in reverse engineering.

Applications

  • Inspection planning on CAD (PLM)
  • PMI interface (CATIA, Pro/E, NX)
  • Compensation of warpage and shrinkage
  • Camber of tool, incorporation into CAD

Benefits

The direct import and evaluation of PMI data including tolerance specifications from 3D design models accelerates new product developments and production processes by 3D measurement planning on the CAD data set or via FTA/MBD data prior to the part production. At the same time, the inspection data is available throughout the complete product lifecycle management (PLM) ensuring a continuous control via central component management.
