The NX Mold Connect app improves the RFQ process for OEMs and suppliers for injection molded parts through better collaboration, validation and cost estimation
Remove the manual work and spreadsheets from your injection molding processes with NX Mold Connect. This online app facilitates effortless collaboration between OEMs and their suppliers for easy and accurate cost estimation and mold design validation.
NX Mold Connect provides an end-to-end process with a seamless flow of data between OEM and shops. Tool shops are no longer just an outsourcing vendor, but a high value partner to OEMS.
Improve communications, accuracy and time to market. Access information via the app from any device, any time.
Gain visibility into cost implications of design decisions early in product development. Avoid cost overruns and win a higher percentage of jobs through accurate tool costing.
NX Mold Connect enables tool shops to collaborate seamlessly with OEM clients in one central location on injection molded parts. With the NX Mold Connect app, tool shops are able to improve quoting and accuracy of workflows while OEMs are better able to predict their costs before RFQ submission.
Share mold-making projects with users and submit requests for quote (RFQ) to multiple tool shops through the app. Allow them to view, download, or have full access to a project's files and communicate via in-app messaging for questions, recommendations or comments. This seamless process eliminates the need for other various communication efforts and manual file transfer methods, allowing users to easily view the status of their project throughout the process.
Perform mold part design validation using design for manufacturing (DFM) analysis on part geometry, wall thickness, mold filling, and part features at the click of a button. Doing this early in product development reduces the need for rework and material waste.
Generate more accurate cost estimations faster with NX Mold Connect tool costing automation. Tool shops can enter the costs for labor, parts, and materials. The app identifies features such as ribs, undercuts, openings and more which are then included in the bill of materials. This combination of pricing and feature recognition creates an automated, accurate quote for the mold.
Synchronize files from desktop to cloud and ensure that tool shops and OEMs are working with the most current data. Using up-to-date data for feature recognition and automated tool costing provides the most accurate estimation of injection molded part cost.
