As the foundation of modern industry, mold technology has been widely used in automobile, energy, machinery and other fields.
Today we are talking about CAD. Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computers (or workstations) to aid in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design.
The discipline of tooling design is fundamental to manufacturing. The cost of manufacturing and of the end product depends heavily upon tool design.
A mechanism design requires consideration of materials, specifications, precision, manufacturing processes, functions, etc., and must be cost-effective to create a good mechanism design.
Under the influence of the China-US trade war and COVID-19, the border management of various countries is still very strict, and global economic and trade activities have not been thawed, which has caused the price of some raw materials to rise. Therefore, if machine tools can be designed with a lightweight structure, it will reduce manufacturing costs and increase profits. Lightweight moving castings can also improve the dynamic characteristics, which will be of considerable help to high-speed or high-precision machine control.
Reverse engineering is a technical process used to analyze and research a target product. It is used to deduce and obtain the products design elements such as the product's processing flow, organizational structure, functional performance specifications, etc., to produce products with similar functions.
In the machinery industry or automation industry, CAD, CAE, and CAM complement each other. Design with CAD and then manufacture with CAM. CAD is the design process using computer technology, CAE is the use of computer simulation to analyze physical problems, and CAM is the use of computers and computer software to control machines for manufacturing, usually suitable for mass-produced parts.
Fixtures and jugs are tools used to quickly fasten workpieces and guide tools during processing, so that the tooling machine, the tool, and the workpiece maintain the correct relative position. Jigs and fixtures are an indispensable part of machining tooling. Machine tool technology is constantly being driven in the direction of high speed, high efficiency, precision, compounding, intelligence, and environmental protection.
Through modularization, a series of universal functional modules are designed, and these modules are selected and combined according to requirements to form products with different performances and specifications.
