Tooling and Fixture Design
Advanced Automation and Process Simulation
NX streamlines the entire tool development process including part design, tool assembly layout, and detailed tooling design and validation. Using NX’s advanced functionality, step-by-step guidance and associativity with part designs, you can work with even the most challenging tooling and fixture designs.
NX Mold Design automates and streamlines the entire mold development process including part design, tool design and motion validation. You can ensure fast response to design changes and high-quality molds.
NX guides you through all of the stages required to design a progressive die, automating the most tedious tasks and streamlining the most complex processes. NX Progressive Die Design is a comprehensive solution for both straight break and freeform sheet metal parts. You can design the complete die structure with associativity to the part design at every stage.
The advanced capabilities in NX for designing automotive stamping dies include formability analysis, die planning, die face design, detailed die structure design and die validation. NX Stamping Die Design guides you in defining the process used to manufacture complex stamped sheet metal parts, producing a representation of the press line and modeling the shape of the sheet metal as it leaves each press.
NX Electrode Design incorporates numerous industry best practices into a step-by-step approach that automates the electrode design and manufacturing process.
Because jig and fixture designs are fully associative to the part model, you can quickly and accurately update fixtures based on part model changes. You can easily position and mate fixture components with the NX assembly capabilities, and then automatically create drawings and documentation for the fixture and its components. NX also allows you to simulate the kinematics of fixtures, such as opened and closed positions, and check for strength and distortion.
