Innovative tool for designers: The HASCO NX library

24.10.2018

As a leading international manufacturer of standard mould units, HASCO is very much focused on simplifying the work involved in mould making. The aim is that designers should be able to carry out their projects easily and quickly with HASCO products and services.

The HASCO NX library, an innovative tool for mould designers, has been developed in close cooperation with long-standing cooperation partners. The library, which is designed as an NX native database, is geared precisely to the requirements of the Siemens CAD system NX. Mould-building customers and designers simply download the database and can use it directly in combination with the NX system.

Easier, faster design

The key advantage of the new tool for mould designers is the reuse library. Here, numerous HASCO standard mould units can be called up as CAD models and easily integrated into the design by drag and drop. This creates new possibilities for faster working and accelerates the process of mould design. A practical benefit is provided by the parametric design of the models, which adapt automatically, depending on the particular assembly situation. Through the integration of latch locking mechanisms into the system, designers can directly adjust the stroke during assembly.

In future, HASCO will continuously extend the NX native database – including the reuse library – with new CAD standard mould unit models. HASCO will provide information on the latest status by newsletter and via the online portal. By developing new digital tools for mould designers, the company will stay true to its motto: "HASCO – Enabling with system".
