Boost productivity by automating the most tedious tasks and streamlining complex processes of progressive die design, while also maintaining associativity to the part design at every stage.
Optimize the design of both straight break and freeform sheet metal parts with a broad set of sheet metal functions. Leverage feature recognition, bend table and direct unfolding capabilities to design associative intermediate stage parts with prebends and overbends.
Apply One-step Unforming and Formability Analysis technology to create intermediate forms and flattened blank shapes for complex freeform parts.
Use an optimized workflow to specify details of the strip layout and the progression of each design stage, while simulating the manufacturing of the strip.
Design die base assembly and die inserts for forming and punching operations. Access a library of standard parts, including catalogs of major suppliers. The customizable base die libraries, standard parts and insert groups streamline the design of die structure.
Reuse knowledge of designs and operations to streamline processes, from tooling design to production. Leverage project templates, materials, tools and processes to reuse and adapt proven designs to new dies.
Build reusable parts, register them in custom libraries and develop reusable die configurations. Generate parts lists, drawings, project data structures and NC toolpaths.
Quickly incorporate design updates using the associativity with the part model throughout the die development process.
Work concurrently with your team members, searching, accessing and reusing project data and processes with the management of data and processes.
Validate the design of the progressive die within the assembly context for proper clearances and reliefs in various positions stated. You can analyze material usage of the strip layout and press force balance, and simulate the strip progression.
Motion simulation with dynamic collision detection helps you verify correct operation in the entire range of die movements.
