Progressive Die Design

Automate design of progressive dies using industry-specific processes.

NX Progressive Die Design

By automating the most tiresome operations and streamlining complicated procedures, our technology leads you through every step needed to create a progressive die. For both straight break and freeform sheet metal parts, our software for progressive die design provides an all-inclusive solution. At every level, you can associate the part design with the complete die structure design.

Read more about the powerful features for progressive die design below.

Create Sheet Metal Part Designs

With the extensive range of sheet metal functions, you may efficiently design both straight break and freeform sheet metal pieces. Design associative intermediate stage parts with prebends and overbends by utilizing feature recognition, bend table, and direct unfolding capabilities.

Create intermediate forms and flattened blank shapes for complex freeform parts using one-step unforming and formability analysis technology.

NX Define Complete Processes

Define Complete Processes

Using a streamlined approach, you may prepare the strip layout fast, specify its specifics, and chart the development of the design stages. To guarantee proper station ordering, you can mimic strip manufacture.

Create forming and punching tools with efficiency and association, as well as the die base assembly and die inserts needed for the activities. The catalogs of the most significant suppliers are included in a library of standard parts that are part of our solution. Standard parts, insert groups, and base die libraries that may be customized make designing the die structure more efficient.

Re-Use Company Standards

Reuse design and operational expertise to restructure procedures, from tool design to manufacturing. Reuse and modify tried-and-true designs for new dies by utilizing project templates, materials, tools, and procedures. By standardizing procedures and parts, you may streamline and improve the die design process.

Develop reusable mold base configurations and build reusable pieces, registering them in unique libraries. Make NC toolpaths, project data structures, components lists, and drawings.

NX Die Designs Using Associativity

Update Die Designs Using Associativity

Our solution maintains associativity with the part design throughout the die design process, carefully controlling changes in the part design. Associativity with the part model allows design changes to be quickly incorporated.

Our solution enables management of data and processes, so you can work concurrently with your team members, searching, accessing, and reusing project data and processes.

Validate Progressive Die Designs

Validate the design of the progressive die within the assembly context for proper clearances and reliefs in various position stated. You can analyze material usage of the strip layout and press force balance, and simulate the strip progression. Motion simulation with dynamic collision detection helps you verify correct operation in the entire range of die movements.
