SpaceClaim and SIMPOE, providers of plastic injection simulation solutions, announced a direct integration between SpaceClaim Engineer and Simpoe-Mold.
Simpoe-Mold and SpaceClaim Engineer work together to help users optimize the design and the tooling of plastic parts while minimizing manufacturing costs, the companies said. "The direct coupling between SpaceClaim Engineer and Simpoe-Mold plastic injection simulation software provides an unprecedented solution for plastic parts designers, mold-makers, and part manufacturers to drastically streamline their product development process," said Thierry Leroy, SIMPOE's COO. "SpaceClaim and SIMPOE both emphasize ease of use, speed, and affordability, and our partnership with SpaceClaim is a natural fit to offer state-of-the-art technology to the plastics industry."
Mold engineers can evaluate designs from any CAD system and adjust them as necessary, regardless of how the model was originally created. "Combining the model preparation capabilities of SpaceClaim Engineer with the plastics molding strengths of Simpoe-Mold provides the design engineer a cost-effective, comprehensive plastics molding solution," said Rich Moore, vice president of business development at SpaceClaim. "This integration will ensure we offer a leading-edge solution to the plastics industry and expand our market presence, while removing waste associated with traditional feature-based CAD," he added.
