Die Cad’s transfer press simulation service provides key insights into your transfer die process before the dies are machined, built and tried out. Our simulation software identifies crashes, close calls and inefficient transfer system curves.
At the conclusion of each simulation iteration, our team of engineers will provide a detailed report showing the Go/No-Go areas in the transfer process. These findings allow you the opportunity to make changes and eliminate issues before the die is built; eliminating expensive and time-consuming fixes later in the build process.
Our simulation service provides you with a virtual tryout early in the tool development process, eliminating costly rework steps, shortens tryout time, and allows you to optimize production efficiency (SPM), saving time and money for everyone involved.
In today’s extremely fast paced, lean-manufacturing world, on-time and on-budget are more important than ever. Transfer press problems and related problem-solving wreak havoc on production and deadlines, and cut deeply into profits. Die Cad Group offers transfer press simulation as a service to optimize your transfer dies and tooling before home line runoff to avoid issues. We can also perform transfer simulation on existing setups to optimize press settings for maximum production rates, as well as to reduce wear and tear on your presses.
DCG has been performing transfer simulations as a service for years now in order to collect real world hard data to make the most accurate transfer simulation software available today.
Our Transfer Optimization service uses kinematics to check for crashes and close calls between the dies, transfer system and press. Your entire die is put into motion, including all pads, lifters, and cams, so full functionality can be verified. A Corrective Action Report (CAR) is generated to communicate where changes are needed. Transfer curves can be adjusted and optimized for maximum strokes per minute (SPM). Full motion videos are included to clearly communicate any issues found in simulation. Use Transfer Optimization for design, setup, and production.
Our service will determine the velocity and acceleration rate of the transfer system, and return your maximum SPM. Curves can be easily adjusted and re-analyzed in minutes to optimize motions for the highest production rate. Once optimization is complete, upper and lower interference curves are generated for export to your design source. Address the issues at the beginning of the project instead of worrying about it at the end.
