Forming Simulation of Progressive Dies

Logopress ProgSim provides accurate forming results much earlier than only using the tryout press, according to the company.

Accurate Die Design Software, Inc., the North American Master Distributor and Technical Center for Logopress software, has announced the launch of Logopress ProgSim. This software enables progressive die designers working in SOLIDWORKS to efficiently simulate, modify and validate their strip layouts. The software allows them to gain deep insight into the forming process and take corrective measures on the computer screen to prevent costly prototyping and reduce time spent in the tryout press.

Logopress ProgSim was developed using incremental simulation technology powered by the AutoForm solver. It is customized for small to medium-sized progressive die companies that want to attain highly accurate results in stamping simulation, but cannot justify the cost of an incremental simulation software that does not have a size limitation on the parts that it can simulate.

The software allows progressive die designers rapid and accurate forming simulation of the progressive die process, including drawing, flanging and forming operations, as well as springback. Users can gain insight into the forming process, including force prediction, and can quickly identify problem areas such as wrinkles, splits or excessive thinning that might occur during the process. This knowledge of the forming process, revealed on the computer screen, expands the overall formability knowledge of the entire design department, and is also useful for estimators and die makers.

Logopress ProgSim acts as a virtual tryout press for forming and enables die designers to validate a process quickly and accurately even before the actual die design has begun. This reduces time and costs related to prototyping, as well as time spent in the tryout press.
