Parametric Technology Corp. has created a mold base add-on for its Pro/Engineer, named Pro/Engineer Expert Mold Extension (EMX).
PTC said the software saves mold designers from the time-consuming, repetitive mold detailing tasks. EMX creates automated mold bases and mold components. Operations such as clearance cuts and drilled and tapped holes are automatically performed on neighboring plates and components.
PTC is based in Needham, Mass.
