Stamping Feature Study

It is well known that stamping parts are combined by a couple of stamping features, such as piercing, bending, blanking, drawing and forming, half-cut, ironing, coining, burring, strength etc..

The relationship between features is like a tree, some feature is combined by sub-features. For example, the major feature “Bending” can be divided to 90 degree bending and non 90 degree bending, the second one also can be divided to two type as bending angle: less than 90 degree and more than 90 degree, since the die structure is quite different. On the other hand, 90 degree bending can be divided to “L” style bending, “V” style bending, “U” style bending and “Z” style bending, each sub-feature include a separated die structure and parameter. If all the feature could be mastered well, it is much easy to control the full part to achieve the requirement.

Unfortunately, the detail study of the stamping features, special to high precision products and progressive die, is still a bottle neck problem in the real industry and the knowledge of these features were still too insufficient. Up to day, many “know-how” still existed in this field. Numerical simulation provided a very effective way for feature study, the parameters could be changed very easily and the final result could be summarized as company in-house design guide or standard.

The purpose of this module is to provide a faster and simple way to generate the basic feature model (both CAD and Analysis model) and define the simulation condition automatically. Then user can simple change some key parameters to obtain the best result or find the balance between condition and result, and apply such design and result to the global model or die design directly. In general, it is a very economic way for both simulation and design.
