Precise Engineering Cuts Progressive Die Start-Up Costs by 80% with PAM-STAMP 2G Stamping Simulation Solution

“Computer simulation reduced the amount of time and money required to determine a successful forming process based on the defined stock width from an estimated $18,000
to only $3,600, concluded Rick Barnard, Precise Engineering’s General Manager. “The key to these savings was the use of PAM-STAMP 2G to quickly and inexpensively simulate the performance of a wide range of die designs. Creating a virtual reality progressive die takes the try-out process off the shop floor and into the engineering office where it can be carried out faster and without tying up presses. We determined the process, developed the initial blank, accurately determined the flow of material during the first draw form, evaluated the impact of springback on finished tolerances, and monitored thinning percentages before we even began building the die.”
