JK Mold Design is a leading provider of high-end, complex molds for plastic injection-molded parts and aluminum and zinc die casting. Increasing competitive pressures prompted owner John Kreutzberger to upgrade his 2D CAD tools to a 3D solid modeling system in 1998.
Kreutzberger selected the SolidWorks 3D CAD software because it can handle diverse CAD data, provides access to a range of add-on mold design and production applications, includes inherent mold design interrogation capabilities, produces engineering drawings and detail views automatically, and represents the best value for the price. By deploying SolidWorks software, JK Mold Design has cut its mold design cycle by 50 percent, increased its ability to import and export various data formats, improved design communication with customers, and enhanced its mold analysis capabilities.
