When you choose Fosta-Tek, you benefit from a wide range of the latest CAD software coupled with a seasoned team of engineers. This combination means you can be confident that your project will meet your unique requirements while delivering precision optics. Our Engineering Department’s CAD software includes Moldflow MPI 2010, Solidworks 2011 and Mastercam X4. But we don’t stop there; our IT Department works closely with the engineering team to monitor and assess the latest software and hardware available, integrating the best-of-breed solutions for our clients. New developments in CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) as well as CNC machining (Computer Numerically Controlled) and EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) enable our tooling engineers to tackle even the most complicated product designs.
Our advanced engineering team can work with anything from a simple product development sketch to complex digital files. So, we can effectively work with you to design and manufacture products that provide the precision optics you require regardless of your project’s scope or design guides, including:
• ANSI Z80 and Z87 Eyewear and Face Protection Requirements
• Sphero-cylindrical power, prism correction, and optical resolution
• Gate and runner system designs to minimize stress, distortion and blush
• Interchangeable cavity inserts for reduced tooling costs.
Using solid modeling software programs Solidworks 2011, we develop 3-dimensional visualizations of products; helping to identify and address design flaws prior to actual processing. Engineering can then optimize variables for maximized performance and efficiency.
Our engineers, toolmakers and optical polishers have years of experience designing, building and polishing optical injection molds. So, we can provide you with an end-to-end mold design and construction solution tailored to your specific project. In addition, we maintain our molds with the same precision and care we bring to designing your project, ensuring that your optical mold will deliver a long useable life.
