WEB EXCLUSIVE: Next month, Missler Software in France will release its newest mold-design and machining software, TopSolid Mold 2010. It will be available here from Clear Cut Solutions, Inc., Addison, Ill. Introduced this month at the EuroMold show in Germany, this new module for the firm’s TopSolid integrated CAD/CAM system includes improved tools for positioning runners and gates, new standard component libraries, and improved handling of imported elements so that, for example, an imported mold base will behave the same way as a mold base designed natively in TopSolid.

            In addition, the new release offers enhanced collaboration capabilities: Several designers can now work on the same project simultaneously. For example, on a complex mold plate, one designer could work on cooling circuits while another focuses on moving slides, cores, or other components. Another new feature is a direct link to CadMould flow-simulation software from Simcon kunststofftechnische Software GmbH, Wuerselen, Germany.

    Modifications to the common core pin can be a simple solution, but don’t expect all resins to behave the same. Gas assist is also worth a try.

    The drive to eliminate secondary operations is pushing multi-shot injection molding a step farther—toward assembling separate components in the tool via snap-fits, welding, and co-molding of incompatible materials.

    Applying a static charge to hold the label in the injection mold eliminates the need for vacuum ports that addsignificantly to the cost of making and maintaining the tool.
