AutoForm-StampingAdviser enables you to quickly and easily evaluate part and process feasibility as well as determine blank shape, material utilization and blank cost. The software provides you with valuable feedback on key stamping quality issues, such as risks of splitting and excess thinning, potential for wrinkling and developed blank shape with its associated material costs.

In the simplest application, AutoForm-StampingAdviser is used for early feasibility evaluations based on part geometry alone, without considering tool geometry. For these analyses, the software allows you to modify the part and, when needed, automatically generate a blankholder surface and a schematic addendum. In a more advanced application, forming analyses and blank development are performed based on the draw-die 3D geometry created by AutoForm-DieDesigner. With a plausible die face, AutoForm-StampingAdviser quickly identifies potential formability issues and determines blank shape, material utilization and blank cost.
