AutoForm-Trim

AutoForm-Trim in combination with AutoForm-FormingSolver is an essential tool for the determination of blank outlines and for the tryout of trimming dies used to find the optimum trim line. This software enables you to design trimming tools simultaneously with the draw die.

Optimum trim line is necessary for the multi-operation stamping process. The trim line is optimized to ensure that the desired shape and dimensions of the part boundary are obtained at the end of the operations following the trimming operation.

Optimum blank outline is necessary for near-net-shape manufacturing (crash forming). The blank outline is optimized to ensure that the desired shape and dimensions of the part boundary are obtained at the end of the crash forming process.

Benefits

  • Determination of optimum trim line and blank outline
  • Time and costs savings due to simultaneous development of trim and draw die
  • Reduced laser-trim tryout time for complex parts

Key Features

  • Automatic determination of  blank outline for near-net-shape manufacturing
  • Automatic calculation of multiple blank outlines
  • Calculation of customer-specified segments of blank or cut outline
  • Simultaneous determination of all cut-out lines for several cutting operations
