As a progressive die maker, AutoForm-ProgSim allows you to efficiently design, simulate, validate and correct your strip concept. Strip concept validation is essential for any progressive die maker as it prevents costly trial and error adjustments as well as costly prototype design and creation.

With AutoForm-ProgSim, you can simulate the entire progressive die stamping process including drawing, flanging, forming and trimming operations as well as springback evaluation. The efficient simulation is achieved through incremental simulation technology. Once the tool geometry is defined in Cimatron, it can be easily exported to AutoForm-ProgSim enabling you to simulate the entire stamping process and validate the results. The results generated, such as optimized trim lines and springback, can then be exported back to Cimatron for tool adaptations.
