As a company in a highly competitive market, Uniloy is continually seeking ways to
stand apart. Approximately ten years ago, the company had been using a CAD program
to design its molds and containers in 2D, but the solution wasn’t sophisticated
enough to position Uniloy on the leading edge. That’s when Uniloy discovered PTC’s
Pro/ENGINEER, a parametric, integrated 3D CAD/CAM/CAE solution. Since that
time, Uniloy has relied on the Creo family of design products to design all its molding
solutions for companies around the globe.
Always eager to tap into the newest features available via the PTC solution, Uniloy
keeps pace with the new releases of Creo. When it migrated to Creo Elements/Pro
5.0 in 2011, Uniloy realized it needed guidance to take full advantage of the solution.
Though all the company’s designers were experienced users of the products, they
needed help efficiently leveraging some of the updated functionality. This included
the Import Data Doctor, which had undergone some changes.
According to Greg Gordon, SR. Project Engineer for Uniloy, “Our design processes
were taking longer due to increasing market demands and product complexity.
Incorporating foreign data into the increasingly complex product and tooling designs
became more challenging. Navigating and understanding the revised Creo version
of Import Data Doctor added to those challenges, yet we knew the Import Data
Doctor was a powerful feature. That’s when we realized that our best choice was to
take advantage of PTC University’s Best Practice Academy – so we could implement
the best design habits and optimize our productivity.”
By engaging an Learning Consultant from PTC University’s Best Practice Academy,
the company was able to quickly learn best practices and methods for importing
custom models to create blow molds.
