Mold makers take advantage of competitively priced, integrated MoldWorks/SplitWorks/SOLIDWORKS package
CAVE CREEK, AZ and CONCORD, MA: September 5, 2001 — R&B, Ltd., a leading mold and die design software developer, R&B Mold & Die Design Solutions/Neuvotec, Inc., a premier distributor for R&B Ltd, and SOLIDWORKS Corporation, a leading provider of affordable 3D solid modeling software, today announced a specially priced, limited time offering of a complete, bundled solution for mold designers. Starting now, and running through December 31, 2001, R&B and SOLIDWORKS will offer MoldWorks™, SplitWorks™, and SOLIDWORKS® software as one integrated product solution starting from $7,495 (USD) – nearly a $2,000 savings over purchasing each product separately.
MoldWorks 2001 is the premier 3D solid based molding design application that significantly reduces the time-consuming tasks associated with creating mold base assemblies. SplitWorks 2001 helps mold designers quickly split plastic parts into cores and cavity inserts. Both products are single-window integrated with SOLIDWORKS 3D solid modeling software to provide a complete, associative mold design environment.
According to Frederick Dudek, Neuvotec President, “Increasingly more contract tooling orders are being fabricated abroad at lower costs. For this reason alone, U.S.-based mold makers need cost-effective tools to help them become more competitive and regain marketshare. We believe that this MoldWorks / SplitWorks / SOLIDWORKS product offering is an excellent incentive to help kick-start this much needed initiative. The technology is state of the art and the pricing makes the offering even more attractive to companies that realize the benefits of implementing these tools to remain successful. This is an excellent opportunity for those organizations to take advantage of a powerful toolkit to help them leapfrog beyond their competition.”
“The mold making industry is experiencing a real change,” adds Brian Houle, manager of SOLIDWORKS’ Gold Products Program. “The combination of SOLIDWORKS, MoldWorks, and SplitWorks helps bridge the gap between experienced mold makers and new, younger workers who are just entering the field. These technologies will help manufacturers attract and retain skilled personnel, lower costs, and win new business.”
