3D Method Design
Advanced CAD modules are expertly used to create high quality, accurate Stamping Methods which produce robust manufacturing and production processes. Tool & Design Solutions specializes in the design of high volume Line, Transfer and Progression Stamping Methods. The Stamping Process Reports which we supply to our customers, provide an in-depth overview of the planned stamping process as well as a clear explanation of the simulation results. The reports provide our customers with the opportunity to review and discuss the details of the planned stamping process prior to providing their approval. Our customers are therefore guaranteed to receive designs in-line with their budgets and overall project requirements. Tool & Design Solutions is a premier 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. 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.
Autoform and FTI FormingSuite are used for simulating stamping processes for feasibility. We have a permanant FTI Formingsuite License and lease Autoform as required.
Simulated virtual try-outs allow us to analyze and determine the following critical information ensuring accurate and efficient die designing:
- Formability Analysis - Thinning, Splitting, Compression, Wrinkling, Plastic Strain.
- Pad & Binder forces.
- Drawbead requirements.
- Optimized trim and blank profiles.
- Springback and Die Face Compensation.
