Strip Layout

Once carried out manually by highly experienced designers, modern software simulation techniques are now used in strip layout design, an important activity during the planning and bidding phase of progressive die stamping. In strip layout design, die designer determines the type of stamping operations required for the part production, the sequence of operations, the required number of stations and the operations to be performed at each station of progressive die.

AutoForm offers the ideal software for strip layout definition, allowing you to first define the layout for a single or double part and to then quickly evaluate and compare different nesting options. In this way, you benefit from the easy prediction of potential blank shape and nesting, the minimization of material usage as well as the early prediction of part costs. The software offers an innovative feature for webs design which enables you to not only to use predefined shapes but also to model desired shapes with just a few commands.
