Mirplex Molds adds speed to Mold Design & Manufacturing Expertise


 Siemens PLM Software Delivers 35 percent reduction in overall delivery time


 


Overview:

Moules Mirplex Inc., has found ways to deliver molds faster to stay ahead of foreign competition. Mirplex relies on the NX digital product development system and SINUMERIK computer numerical control (CNC) technology from Siemens for a fast mold development process that ensures the level of quality and precision its customers have come to expect.

The Problem:

Moules Mirplex offers services in mold manufacturing and precision machining, and has become known for its expertise, to the point that many of its customers now involve Mirplex in their design process. But this does not protect the company from time pressures posed by global competition.

The Epiphany:

The Company evaluated a number of other solutions before upgrading from its previous I-deas software. It chose NX because of the seamless integration of the NX CAD and CAM systems, the fact that it could create the large digital assemblies that some of its molds required, and NX CAM’s support for the Siemens SINUMERIK 840D controller, which Mirplex uses to run its Huron HSM center.

The Execution:

Mirplex relies on the NX digital product development system and SINUMERIK computer numerical control (CNC) technology from Siemens for a fast mold development process that ensures the level of quality and precision its customers have come to expect. With NX, mold design and tool path creation take place concurrently.

The Result:

The overall result is a 35 percent reduction in the time it takes Mirplex to deliver molds to its customers. This faster cycle time, combined with the company’s expertise, positions it well in the globally competitive market for molds.
