Lung Kee Selects PTC Pro/ENGINEER To Build 3D Moldbase Library; Shortening Design Time by 20% and Bringing Products to Market Faster.
With this library, manufacturers of home appliances, toys and automotive components can benefit from cost-effective development and production of molding tools. Not only is this a 3D library of standard parts, its "smart" design makes fitting and changing components in 3D much easier for engineers. It therefore reduces the design errors and the time spent by engineers on routine and time-consuming tasks. Additionally, the moldbase library allows users to generate a completely assembled moldbase with just a few mouse clicks. As all of the components in the library are in 3D format, it allows for quick, real-time previewing so that engineers are able to discover design errors at an early stage. This can drastically reduce last minute changes and ultimately saves money and resources.
"We are happy to use PTC solutions to develop a comprehensive moldbase library for our customers' benefit. With Pro/ENGINEER EMX, our library can help our customers reduce the mold design process time by 20%. This enormous gain in productivity will allow our customers to bring their products to markets faster," said Michael Mak, executive director, Lung Kee Group.
Pro/ENGINEER EMX provides "smart" moldbase and mold components. It helps eliminate errors resulting from tedious repetitive tasks like clearance hole creation for screws and ejector pins. Its quick-preview GUI's (graphical user interface) allows quick and real-time previewing before the 3D component or assembly is automatically placed.
Mr. Mak added, "Without this library, it would normally take our customers at least an hour to create a standard moldbase. But now, it will only take minutes with the EMX library. No more tedious time spent building a standard moldbase. And the customers have instant access to the most commonly used mold base catalogs in the industry from the EMX library."
Remington Chen, vice president, China & HK of PTC said, "We are proud to work with Lung Kee Group which is one of the largest mold manufacturers in Asia. With the EMX library built on Pro/ENGINEER EMX, we are confident Lung Kee's customers will take advantage of the product to reduce design errors and boost productivity."
