Benefits for your company

With Expert Moldbase Extension (EMX) as a module fully integrated into Creo Parametric, you can extend your software portfolio in order to standardize or automate design tasks in the field of injection molding tools to a large degree, thus allowing you to focus more on your core tasks.

By integrating standard part libraries from all common manufacturers and providing numerous intelligent templates, you can handle tasks in the areas of tool design and standard part installation quickly and flexibly. You will be supported by user-friendly dialogs and input assistance, which offer you the available options as appropriate. By offering extensive analysis tools, users outside the design department also benefit directly of the automatically derived results.

Furthermore, the software naturally supports you when transferring the design data to the production area, both in the classic drawing derivation and in the digital and drawing-free transfer of the product and manufacturing information (PMI).

  • Uhr - Icon

    Timesaving

    EMX eliminates the time-consuming import of external design data, as standard parts are generated and installed in the native Creo format, and the corresponding sections are generated according to the manufacturer's specification.

  • Stilisierte Glühbirne - Icon

    Simple

    You can easily select and install standard parts from various manufacturers using uniform installation conditions and options.

  • Standardized

    The high variability of the software allows you to centralize company policies, captures design knowledge and reduces manual repetitive errors.

  • Integrated in Creo

    From plate assembly to export of the BOM, the software is embedded in the design process with Creo Parametric. The integration with Windchill completes the range of functions.

Functionalities

Assemble Components

Screws, pins, guides, cooling, ejectors etc. are assembled via a standardized dialog. These components can be modified and reused after assembly. Information on standard parts can be accessed via a direct web link to the manufacturer’s websites.

Define Tool

Standardised panel assemblies can be created via the mold base definition.

Generate Cooling Circuits

Complex cooling circuits with connection components can be generated by using curve sketches.

In addition, it is possible to perform a collision test with the surrounding geometry.

Place Ejector Pins

Ejector pins can be placed directly on points. It is possible to contour the pins directly on the article.

Calculate Model Size

This function enables the automatic calculation of the model sizes of all parts in the tool structure.

Manage BOMs

The BOM dialog can be used to manage parameter-based BOMs. The dialog provides additional tools that enable an export to Excel, the placement of drawing balloons or size calculation.

Component Partner in EMX

For the insertion of standard parts (e.g. cooling components, guide components, ejector pins, plates and much more)
the libraries of the following suppliers are available to you, among others:

Additional manufacturer: FCPK, PCS, Progressive Components, Ramseier, DMS, OMNI Mold Systems, TVMP, LKM, Misumi, Futaba, Stäubli, OPITZ and on request.

    • SMARTColor

      SMARTColor complements your EMX installation and helps you provide machine-readable product and manufacturing information (PMI) through the rule-based application of predefined colors.

    • SMARTElectrode

      Create your sinking electrodes in a parametric world! The fully integrated software solution SMARTElectrode will speed up your design tasks in this area.

    • SMARTHolechart

      SMARTHolechart saves you a huge amount of time in adding bore hole information and offers intelligent creation of hole charts. Rotational geometries are recognized automatically and hole types can be classified individually.

    • SMARTUpdate

      SMARTUpdate checks your assemblies, parts and drawings using a set of predefined rules. Based on the check results, the software repairs and updates your data reliably and automatically.

    • SMARTXHatch

      Use SMARTXHatch to easily define X-hatch properties in your assembly drawings. Especially in your large tool assembly drawings, it will speeds up your cross-hatching definition and view regeneration significantly.
