Die Design Software 2018 Version

Logopress Corp., along with its North American Technical Center Accurate Die Design Software, Inc. offers its 2018 version of SolidWorks-based Logopress3 die design software. This version includes 16 pages of enhancements and features.

"While doing a strip layout and defining the cutting punches, it is very common that the slug being cut out is not the exact shape of the punch due to overlap with prior cutting punches and because of the strip width edge of the material. But it can be useful to understand exactly what the slug being cut looks like. Logopress3 now shows the actual slugs underneath the punches that will be falling through the die openings," said a company spokesperson.

Once the strip layout is complete and the user is presented with the size of the strip along with the tonnage required for the die, the designer can select which press the die will run in. At this point the designer can select from a family of tool templates that can be customized and will be fit for that specific press. This provides standardization among users, and is especially helpful for new users in the company whether they be estimators or die designers, because they can simply select the die parameters from a predefined database.

Similarly, as the die designer is creating the die he or she can choose a predefined group of components from a database and insert them using the new Logopress3 Insert a Set of Components command. This inserts the group of components along with all applicable fasteners and springs, and also creates all milled pockets, holes and openings automatically as well. It does all of this with a single mouse validation click. For example, this could be a stripper form insert and its pocket and screws in the stripper sub-assembly, along with the form up punch and its related pressure pad, springs, screws and openings in the die assembly.

The Logopress3 die simulation (die kinematics) and dynamic interference detection has been expanded to include both dynamic interference and static interference. The simulation now also includes two new types of motion traction and connecting rod/crank. "These new motions will especially benefit those companies that create metal stampings using four-slide and vertical slide machines, as well as those running transfer dies," said the spokesperson.

In the bill of materials (BOM) it is now possible to automatically add an oversized machining allowance to the finished dimensions of the stock size for ordering purposes.
