Local startup plasticscommerce.com has signed an agreement with Gintic Institute of Manufacturing Technology to offer an innovative service for plastics moldmakers worldwide.

SINGAPORE, 11 July 2000 - Called Product Data Exchange (PDEX), the service allows plastics die, mold and precision engineering companies to translate Computer Aided Design (CAD) files between 13 major CAD and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) systems.

PDEX will be available through plasticscommerce.com, and this is the first of such services in the region that supports a wide range of CAD systems and provides a range of data translation.

With PDEX, companies can expect to reap the following benefits:

  • cost savings on skilled manpower and expensive hardware and CAD/CAM software
  • reduced time spent on model repairing or re-modelling resulting from conversion of CAD files between different systems
  • upgrade to three-dimensional based design technology
  • high level of security measures to safeguard security of client's files

    Two levels of service
    There will be two levels of service offered to moldmakers.

    Level 1 is a direct translation of files from a native CAD format to a neutral standard. It is available at US$20 for the first megabyte and US$5 for every subsequent megabyte.

    Level 2 allows translation from one CAD format to another and includes manual repair of defects by Gintic's engineers. It is available at US$50 for the first megabyte and US$10 for every subsequent megabyte.
