AutoForm-TryoutAssistant acts as a digital assistant during the physical tryout. In tryout, correctional loops on the draw die must be carried out until the die can be used to produce a part of the required quality. Since correctional work and modifications are inevitable, every correction loop that you can avoid offers an immediate advantage in terms of time and money.

Based on the engineering data created by AutoForm-Sigma, AutoForm-TryoutAssistant provides you with suggestions regarding geometry as well as process parameter modifications that are in line with engineering requirements. The software was developed to bring tangible benefits in the tool shop in both the engineering as well as tryout departments. Achieving an efficient tryout requires that these two departments coordinate their activities together. AutoForm-TryoutAssistant assists the tryout process by facilitating the direct communication between these departments.


  • Reliable digital assistant in tool shops
