Innovative tool for designers: The HASCO NX library
The HASCO NX library, an innovative tool for mould designers, has been developed in close cooperation with long-standing cooperation partners. The library, which is designed as an NX native database, is geared precisely to the requirements of the Siemens CAD system NX. Mould-building customers and designers can simply download the database and use it directly in combination with the NX system.
Easier, faster design
The key advantage of the new tool for mould designers is the reuse library. Here, numerous HASCO standard mould units can be called up as CAD models and easily integrated into the design by drag and drop. This creates new possibilities for faster working and accelerates the process of mould design. A practical benefit is provided by the parametric design of the models, which adapt automatically, depending on the particular assembly situation. Through the integration of latch locking mechanisms in the system, designers can directly adjust the stroke during assembly.
Moving forward, we will continuously extend the NX native database – including the reuse library – with new CAD standard mould unit models.
The MoldWizard APP has been specially developed by designers in the mouldmaking sector. The standard components in the system are parametric and include manufacturing information for the downstream CAM programming. This simplifies the process and supports the design and manufacture of moulds.
HASCO is a partner to the users and developers of the application. The HASCO standards are stored extensively in the system and can be directly deployed.
