3D Method Design
Advanced CAD Software surfacing modules are expertly used to create high quality, accurate stamping process layouts / 3 D Methods.
We specialize in the design of high volume Line, Transfer and Progression 3D Stamping Processes. Stamping process reports are created in order to provide our customers with a in-depth overview of the planned stamping process as well as the simulation results. The reports provide our customers with the opportunity to review the planned stamping process for approval purposes. Our customers are therefore ensured of designs in-line with their budgets as well as a faultless, robust manufacturing and production processes. ​Our advanced software capabilities combined with our 30 years of sheet metal stamping experience makes us a leading Tool & Die Design supplier, globally.

Simulation Validation
Simulation enables fast and accurate prediction of forming issues for the entire forming process including drawing and secondary operations as well as Springback early in the design phase of the project. Our accurate interpretation of these simulation results allows us to optimize the stamping process, quickly resolving any problem areas. The die manufacturing process can thus commence with maximum confidence! ​ Try-out simulations can either be based on the component geometry for early feasibility or on the planned tool surface/die face data.
We use Autoform and FTI FormingSuite for simulating stamping processes for feasibility. We have a permanant FTI License but lease Autoform as and when required.
Simulated virtual try-outs allow us to analyze and determine the following critical information ensuring accurate and efficient die designing:
​- Thinning, Splitting, Compression, Wrinkling, Plastic Strain.
- Pad & Binder forces.
- Drawbead requirements.
- Optimum trim and blank profiles.
- Springback and Die Face Compensation.
