Design and Manufacturing of Air Conditioner Panel Hot Runner Injection Mold Based on CAD/CAE/CAM
Take air conditioner panel for example, it is introduced that the whole process of hot runner injection mold design and manufacture based on CAD/CAE/CAM technology. The panel structure and injection process were analyzed using HuaSu CAE software, then the panel structure was designed using UG/Mold Wizard software, the NC programming and manufacture simulating of the formed parts were done by UG/MACHINE module at last. Compared with the traditional mold design method, CAD/CAE/CAM technology not only can improve the efficiency, shorten production period, but also can reduce the cost of mold design and manufacture greatly.
