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.
With AutoForm software, the trim line is automatically adjusted to remove or add sheet metal until the desired part boundary is achieved. This software enables you to design trimming tools simultaneously with the draw die. By optimizing the trim line, the need for laser-trim tryouts is eliminated later on in the process, thereby significantly reducing lead time and costs.
