AutoForm Training Seminars
Simulation of Progressive Dies
USA: Training Seminars 2013
Trainings to be scheduled upon request. Please contact your local AutoForm office to schedule a session, or send us your filled in request for quotation.
This course provides participants with in-depth training in applying AutoForm software to validate progressive die processes. The following application streams are covered and streamlined into advanced techniques / best practices for engineering and validating progressive die stamping: quick feasibility check on part geometry and initial blank development using AutoForm-StampingAdviserplus; design, improvement and validation of full, multi-station progressive die operation using AutoForm-ProcessExplorerplus; automatic trim/blank development and optimization using AutoForm-Trimplus. Special attention will be applied to unique progressive die challenges and concerns: coil carrier behavior, stretch web deformation, and material behavior and failures in multi-stage forming operations.
This one-day course is intended for AutoForm users, tool designers, formability engineers, and analysts who need to apply AutoForm-ProcessExplorerplus to progressive dies. This is an advanced training course; participants need to be proficient in the use of AutoForm-ProcessExplorerplus for stamping process set up, simulation and post-processing. Experience with AutoForm-Trimplus is useful.
Training seminars are held at AutoForm’s offices in the USA, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Japan and Korea. Upon request, the seminars can also be held at customer sites. Please contact your AutoForm team to schedule a session.
