Benefits of Metal Stamping Simulation Software
Simulation software has proved to be a boon to metal stamping industries in our time. There are many industries like aeronautics, electrical, electronic, defense, automotive, and so on that benefit from this aid. The metal stamping software is used to get an overall idea about how the part will work, the best design, and also helps build the required tool to produce it. This is a great gift for the engineers who can now explore various tool design options, and simulate how the different parts will react with the material during the actual metal stamping process. The engineers are able to design the part for manufacturability and are able to save time and money for their customers in a long run. Some of the additional benefits are mentioned in this article.
Simulating a wide range of materials
Technology has made a lot of things possible in our time. There are many areas in the metal stamping field that simulation software can benefit. Along with the metal stamping simulation software, there is a pre-set material library. This library has the specifications for standard materials that are used in metal stamping. This helps the metal stamping companies to get a detailed idea about how a specific material will reach with the tooling during the manufacturing process.
Problems can be avoided by evaluating performance
At many times, simulation software is instrumental in revealing the weak spots in part design. The software may provide insights and results that give an idea that the metal might crack or pull in the production phase. When it comes to new part design, the engineers may run several tests to get a clear idea about how a tool will perform, and whether or not the material will work efficiently. The software runs for many hours depending upon the tests performed by the engineers. The simulation software helps get good insights in complex parts such as compound and linear bends.
The simulation software can also be instrumental in evaluating the existing tools that have borderline problems or experienced downtime. The software helps the precision metal stamping suppliers to save money and time involved in designing and building a new tool.
Saving money with virtual prototyping
In earlier times, a prototype tool was the only option to determine how the parts could be stamped efficiently. However, now with the help of simulation software, a virtual prototype can be created. The virtual tool can give an idea about how the parts will be formed using a certain material. There are various ways the metal stamping supplier uses this feature to save money and avoid potential problems in manufacturing down the road.
In the metal stamping field, building a tool is considered to be an expensive affair. However, with the help of simulation software, the engineers can create a virtual tool and identify problems before developing the actual tool. The software is instrumental in coming up with designs that are even unconventional, and this feature can also result in additional cost saving.
Part design and data can be improved
With the help of simulation software, engineers can get relevant insights into how the parts will operate in the given environment. It is easier now, for engineers to evaluate the design of a certain part for manufacturability. Simulation software will help the suppliers and manufacturers to get solid proof of what to expect in the manufacturing process. The software can recommend some improvements in the tools, and there are easy options for smooth and easy approvals for the same.
Smart work and effective result
By using the simulation software, the engineers are able to perform smart work and ensure that only the best output is produced. Simulation software in metal stamping helps understand why and how a certain material will react. So rather than go through with the lengthy process of developing the actual tool and then making changes, the simulation software helps engineers do all of it in a virtual environment. This helps them do smart work, and provide efficient results to the customers.
Eigen sees the actual potential
