The Coding System for Automatic Injection Mold Integrated CAD/CAPP
Based on the Group Technology and according to the function, structure and manufacturing process of the injection mold, a classification and coding system for injection mold is developed specially. The system is mainly centre around the classification, code structure and the way of the coding, by which the information description and transmission between CAD and CAPP becomes unblocked, the mold CAD/CAPP integration and automation in design and process comes true. It is supposed to help reduce the time in process planning, increase plan consistency and efficiency, improve mold quality and minimize the time-to-market for the mold products.
