For decades the best practice to launch tooling was iteration...adding or removing material from the tool. There was no alternative process. The fixed costs of part launch are due to the tooling iterations.
Now with simulated tooling iterations in software, engineers are able to cut costs with tooling launches.
The cost calculator will help you to understand:
- How much time is consumed by tooling iterations
- The extent of materials costs
- Simulated tooling iterations in software is a game changer
- It decreases labor and materials costs, increases machine utilization
