CoreTech System (Moldex3D) announced its mold filling simulation technology has been integrated with the latest release of NX software, Siemens' computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE) solution. NX EasyFill Analysis will enable the mold filling simulation technologies to enhance the mold design-to-manufacturing process for users of NX 8.5. Siemens' PLM Software business unit started distributing and supporting NX EasyFill Analysis globally with the release of NX 8.5.
"We are very happy to incorporate Moldex3D filling analysis capabilities in NX to offer designers a more accessible and easy-to-use injection molding solution," said Venny Yang, president of Moldex3D. "Predicting and preventing manufacturing defects in the earliest design phase of plastic injection-molded product development will become more efficient and cost-effective, and help companies avoid unnecessary waste of time and money on repeated mold trials and fixes."
NX EasyFill Analysis enables designers to check potential manufacturing defects without leaving the NX design environment. Additionally, Moldex3D provides more advanced capabilities in its "eDesignSYNC for NX" to support packing, cooling, fiber orientation and warpage predictions. It allows NX users to visualize more critical molding factors and evaluate the results, such as sink marks, overpacking, or thermal displacement and part shrinkage.
