Simulate the thermal performance of an injection mold insert with NX Cooling Mode Wizard

Temperature and the ability to cool parts rapidly play a decisive role in the manufacturing process. Traditional manufacturing methods restricted the cooling geometry to straight channels, but with additive manufacturing you can rethink and optimise the cooling configuration of the mold enabling greater control of the thermal cycle. 

The NX Mold Cooling Analysis tool allows you to quickly simulate the thermal performance of an injection mold insert.

Rapidly develop high-quality molds using advanced automation while maintaining associativity to part designs.

Product Analysis

Start the mold design by designing the product. You can open any standard CAD files or select parts designed with NX.  

Ensure desired design intent and manufacturability by modeling, making design changes and analyzing geometry.

Core and cavity development

Streamline the design process of core and cavity geometry using automated capabilities, enabling you to: 

  • Use automated shutoffs and a parting of core/cavity 

  • Design parting surfaces quickly and associatively 

  • Split mold to accommodate complex slider designs 

  • Automatically check the core/cavity design for interferences

Mold Structure

Define the entire mold structure, including the core, cavity, component systems and mold base for both prototype and production-scale multi-cavity molds.  

Configure the mold using libraries of standard parts, component systems and mold bases. Quickly add and trim ejector pins and insert cooling channels with parametric patterns. Include runners, gates, screws, pins and other standard components.

Design Validation

Analyze the manufacturability of part designs using tools to check wall thickness, identify undercut regions and evaluate corner radii. 

Validate the mold design by checking the distances and reliefs in various positions and by analyzing the requirements for electrodes.  

Use the motion simulation capabilities to verify the entire range of movements of the mold, including dynamic collision detection.

Reuse of company standards

Reduce tool development time by reusing your company's standards, including:

  • Repurpose project templates and adapt proven designs to new molds

  • Accelerate the mold design process by standardizing components

  • Automate generation of NC toolpaths and project data structures

  • Develop reusable mold base configurations and save them in custom libraries

Design change and propagation control

Use the associativity with the part model to facilitate rapid propagation of design changes through the process, from mold design to machining operations.  

Ensure that the entire team works with the correct data by integrating the Teamcenter software, which provides a single source of data and process knowledge.
