Mould, tool and die

Find out how SOLIDWORKS has helped our customers design faster, smarter and stay ahead of the competition.

SOLIDWORKS in the Mould, tool and die industry.

The challenge:

A demanding economy is forcing mould makers to be even more creative while facing stiff global competition. Today’s customers insist on precision and durability, while also demanding shorter lead times and lower prices.

The solution:

Innova Systems work with a large number of successful companies in the mould, tool and die industries who benefit every day using a SOLIDWORKS software solution. Together with the extensive support offered as part of the Innova Systems customer package, SOLIDWORKS increases sales, improves product quality and design and lowers manufacturing costs – Whatever the size of your company.

The right tools

SOLIDWORKS software provides the full range of integrated modeling, simulation, visualisation, and communication tools that mold, tool, & die manufacturers need to design better products faster at a lower cost.

The price is right

Automated bill of material (BOM) generation provides more accurate costing structures in your customer quotes.

Simulate for success

SOLIDWORKS Simulation helps you predict what might happen to a component when placed under certain stresses like elevated temperature/weight, allowing any modifications to be done without fuss.

Complex design? No problem!

SOLIDWORKS allows you to design complex geometry and large amounts of data into your product. You can be sure your design software will perform when working with complex or large designs.

Communicate and share

eDrawings allows the design to be quickly and securely communicated in 3D to any firm, regardless of their CAD platform. Even non-CAD users are able to interact with your model!

It's easy!

After a five day training course with our award-winning technical team, you’ll be up and running and ready to start being more productive with SOLIDWORKS.

Customer success story: Lynar Manufacturing

Based in Harlow, Lynar Manufacturing were established in 1963 and specialise in Wire Erosion and CNC Machining. They also provide everything from one-off prototypes to the production of thousands of single fully assembled components for every day production.

We talked recently to Lynar’s Tool and Design Manager, Sean Murrells, and Production Director, Gary Richens, about how SOLIDWORKS and Innova Systems have helped them take the business to the next level, slashing costs, improving visual communication and getting their components made right, first time.

Sean talk’s about the challenges faced when producing the tooling for a recent client project – an innovative window locking bracket for caravans. For more information on the design and build process of the Lock-M-Out bracket featured in the video, please click here.
