D-M-E Co. has launched an on-line library of computer-aided-design drawings of its mold components, available at www.dme.net.
The site has a link to the CAD drawing portal from Part Solutions of Cincinnati. It includes solid models of thousands of D-M-E products that can be used in virtually any CAD system, the company said.
Drawings are received in user-selectable native CAD format, allowing mold makers to modify and add the parts into other production drawings.
“The goal is to have our entire product line available for download by the end of the year,” said Jeff Strine, advanced technical specialist for the company in Madison Heights, Mich. That includes mold bases and components, hot-runner components and products from Master Unit Die and D-M-E in Europe.
Users quickly can find drawings by entering a part number or using a search function. D-M-E also e-mails a file of changes to past users of a given part, which can be ordered simply by replying to the e-mail.
