Stay in the Game - CAD CAM Systems Helps Chicago Mold Engineering Take On Global Competition
The Challenge - Global Competition
The use of PowerSHAPE and PowerMILL software supplied by CAD CAM Systems has really proved its value by helping eliminate mistakes. "We specialize in large tooling with unique features, like moving parts or two-shot molds," said Mr. Oswald. Having software that helps the moldmakers eliminate mistakes is key to their success. "Large tooling carries more risk because of the large investment," explained Mr. Oswald. "You have to have a definite plan because you can't afford to make any mistakes. The cost of the material alone can be $50,000. Add in the machine time and handling costs and the investment is huge. It has to be right the first time."
