Powerful and Intuitive Forming Design
Leveraging the industry's fastest blanking capability (including vertical walls), CimatronE DieDesign's dedicated forming and finite element tools automatically account for material stretch and deformation. Powerful CimatronE CAD allows for especially rapid creation of intermediary geometry, and integral, robust Data Import functionality facilitates work with data from other sources.
Unique 2D/3D Hybrid Strip Design and Layout
CimatronE DieDesign dramatically shortens the strip design cycle, while raising accuracy and lowering cost. The system enables rapid hybrid 2D/3D design, realistic visualization, and more efficient creation of the progressive die strip. Using a set of intelligent, dedicated tools, CimatronE DieDesign allows diemakers decide how to best nest parts on the strip - optimizing material utilization. Users can determine the optimum number of progressions, and implement the forming operation for each step.
Comprehensive Die Tool Design
CimatronE DieDesign enables design and creation of the complete die tool assembly. Leveraging data from the forming and strip design phases, DieDesign allows diemakers to choose parts from either standard or dedicated die catalogs. The system also features automatic BOM generation, even at the earliest phases of design.
