CAD-Quality Die Faces

Despite the widespread use of various CAD systems in engineering, such systems alone cannot efficiently support all the necessary stages in the sheet metal forming engineering process. This is particularly evident during the tool design stage when the final die faces for the complete sheet metal forming process must be defined and validated.

AutoForm-ProcessDesignerforCATIA software enables you to generate CAD-quality die faces in CATIA. It combines our expertise in sheet metal process design with the powerful functionalities of CATIA. Through dedicated surfacing commands, AutoForm-ProcessDesignerforCATIA enables you to quickly generate accurate die face geometry, including deep drawing and all secondary operations in CATIA. The software is unique in this field and no other on the market supports you in the generation of best-in-class surfaces. All generated surfaces fulfill class A surface requirements and can immediately be used for CNC machining.
