The Design of Injection Mold for the Handset Based on Reverse Engineering


Article Preview

With the rapid development of advanced industrial technology and computer technology, using the reverse engineering to mold and simulate for products has already been an important trend in the modern product design, and it has also been an important technology in the CAD/CAM field, especially the field of the molding design. The article took telephone handset as an example, the point cloud data of the physical profile was done by the three-dimensional laser scan using the reverse engineering technology. The handset 3-D mold was given in Pro/E by the point-data processing, the curve and surface constructing. Finally the handset injection mold was designed. The study result shows that using reverse engineering to achieve the design of injection mold can not only effectively reduce the cycle of mold design, but reduce design cost.
