The session called "The Search for CAD Interoperability" will be chaired by Bean. Panel members will address why CAD interoperability continues to be a major productivity issue across the manufacturing sector and discuss specific implications for mold makers. A number of "real world" solutions designed to help mold makers compete in today's global supply chain will be offered.
MoldMaking Expo 2006 is the only event devoted exclusively to showcasing technologies and strategies used in mold making and rapid manufacturing. The conference will feature new technologies and applications, networking opportunities with colleagues, customers and prospects and product and process solutions for mold makers.
"One of the most pervasive problems in the modern-day manufacturing industry is a lack of interoperability between CAD tools," said Bean. "Moldmakers have experienced this challenge first-hand and its costing them significant resources to address. The industry understands that imported designs are difficult or impossible to modify. Simply converting a CAD file to a different format doesn't capture all the information that a mold designer or engineer needs in order to complete the job. Fortunately, new technologies are emerging to give moldmakers a competitive advantage."
Kubotek will also be exhibiting at the Expo. The company will demonstrate a solution specifically created for moldmakers to significantly shorten design time. Partnering with Cornerstone Technology Inc., creator of the XMD(R) (Expert Mold Designer) software, Kubotek will give conference attendees a view into the productivity enhancements achieved by an integrated KeyCreator(R) and XMD combination. Kubotek will also showcase its new REALyze(TM) interoperability tools developed to help engineers and designers understand and edit "dumb" geometry. In an effort to streamline the design to manufacturing process, Kubotek has introduced REALyze to help CAD/CAM professionals share imported models between disparate CAD systems. The REALyze toolset will complement and coexist with popular CAD platforms.
Kubotek USA, Inc., headquartered in Marlborough, MA, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kubotek Corporation. Kubotek USA develops and manufactures KeyCreator mechanical CAD software, (formerly CADKEY), REALyze multiCAD interoperability tools, rapid prototyping and non-contact inspection systems, and offers the free Kubotek Spectrum multiCAD viewer.
