  • Optimize Toolmaking and High-Speed Machining

    Pro/TOOLMAKER offers the power of high-speed machining for toolmaking, prototypes and other precision machining applications, with a fast, easy-to-use NC toolpath programming application. Manufacturing engineers and machinists now have the most powerful package of NC programming capabilities, including NC post-processing and production tooling libraries, in a single, stand-alone product package.

  • Core and cavity design

    Product design complexity is often over-shadowed by that required of the mold. Creo Elelments/Pro Tool Design can create even the most complex single- and multiple-cavity molds. A process-driven workflow guides the user through each step. Automated parting surface creation and automated splitting make it easy for even the occasional user to create complex tooling quickly.

  • Fast progressive die design

    Tooling development for progressive dies is best approached with a purpose-built solution. With Creo Elelments/Pro Progressive Die software, easy-to-use wizards guide the user through automatic strip layout definition, cut stamp creation, and placement/modification of die components. Documentation, clearance cuts, and drilled holes are created automatically, enabling die designers to avoid manual, error-prone tasks.

  • Mold filling analysis

    Problems found after tooling development are always expensive and frustrating. For plastic part design and manufacture, there is a better way. By simulating the plastic-filling process for injection-molded parts, Creo Elelments/Pro Plastic Advisor enables engineers to design for manufacturability, uncover problems, and propose remedies, reducing development time and expense.

  • Punch and bend metal 

    Inefficient sheetmetal manufacturing entails high levels of scrap, and manually-conducted repetitive operations. Eliminating these problems is the domain of Creo Elelments/Pro NC Sheetmetal. You gain productivity by automatically creating and optimizing toolpaths using standard and form tools. And, with its smart auto-nesting, you utilize maximum sheet area, reduce scrap and material costs and shorten lead times. Creo Elelments/Pro NC Sheetmetal improves manufacturing tooling and factory equipment design processes.

  • Simplified moldbase design

    Many toolmakers rely on a 2D CAD approach for designing moldbases. Accordingly, Creo Elelments/Pro Expert Moldbase Extension provides an ideal solution. Process-based and easy-to-learn, it allows the toolmaker to work in a familiar 2D environment, while employing all the power and benefits of 3D, drastically cutting lead time.

  • Quality Inspection

    Ensuring that proper manufacturing processes are conducted is an essential, but potentially expensive proposition. Creo Elelments/Pro Computer-Aided Verification delivers a straightforward, economical answer. It allows digital inspections of machined parts and assemblies for quality assurance purposes and supports both CMM machines and laser scanners. Thus, this integral digital quality checking saves time, effort, and money.

  • Total mold design

    Professional mold designers now have everything they need to completely design an entire mold assembly – core, cavity and moldbase – in one package. Creo Elelments/Pro Complete Mold Design combines all the features of Tool Design and Expert Moldbase, offering a powerful combination of capabilities for specialized mold assembly creation.

  • Comprehensive Machining

    Creo Elelments/Pro Complete Machining offers a full solution for the creation of all types of programs for CNC machines used in production environments. This solution enables you to directly machine simple or complex product geometries with NC toolpaths optimized for manufacturing lines. It includes the capabilities of Creo Elelments/Pro Production Machining, extended to multi-axis machining, full NC programming capabilities and tool libraries. Creo Elelments/Pro Complete Machining improves tooling design and manufacture processes.
