TopSolid'Mold & TopSolid'Cam on display at EuroMold

TopSolid'Mold and TopSolid'Cam are 2 software packages offered by Missler Software for the design and machining of molds. (These 2 modules include the standard design elements and machining processes involved in the mold making industry. The mold maker's way of working, together with the mold components (columns, ejectors, etc.) and technologies (standard mold bases, guide rails, etc.) used in the trade are directly accessible in TopSolid'Mold and TopSolid'Cam. You can see TopSolid'Mold and TopSolid'Cam in action at this year's EuroMold in Frankfurt, Hall 8, Stand H56.

TopSolid'Mold is a fully integrated CAD module designed to meet the highly specialized needs of mold makers and tool & die specialists. TopSolid'Mold enables calculation of the shrinkage factor, analysis of undercuts, calculation of the parting line and surface of the joint, automatic creation and definition of the core block and cavity, implementation of the standard carcass, systems of injection and ejection and analysis of the cooling system.

TopSolid'Cam, which is completely integrated with TopSolid'Mold, enables the automatic generation of the machining schedule of the mold. (TopSolid'Cam recognises the plaques, die sets and components used in the design stage) All manufacturing data produced by TopSolid'Mold will be understood by TopSolid'Cam, notably the drilling procedures for components. General mechanical processes produced by TopSolid'Cam will be automatically recognised by TopSolid'Cam. In order to respect the work habits of the mold maker it is also possible to use colour codes on parts and components that may be directly interpreted by the machining process.

Here are 3 TopSolid'Cam strong points for mold makers:
  • The possibility to carry out 2D and 3D operations at the same time. In the past moldmakers would have had to separate these 2 processes on different machines. With TopSolid'Cam such operations are now possible in a fast and economical fashion.
  • The automatic transformation of 3 axis tool paths in 5 axis tool paths - This function automates the transformation of a 3 axis tool path into a 5 axis tool path and is a significant improvement for mold makers. It permits the use of shorter tools to machine the part, which in turn favours good cutting conditions, a decrease in possible vibrations and a significant reduction in cycle times.
  • Automatic prevention of collisions in continuous 5 axis machining - Frequently used by mold makers the automatic prevention of collisions in continuous 5 axis machining is now available in TopSolid'Cam 2007. Therefore, the tool orientation is automatically modified in case of collisions or attachment with the part.

Don't forget to visit TopSolid at EuroMold, Hall 8, Stand H56.
