Tool and Die Engineering - Tool and Die Assistant

The product line Tool & Die Engineering (TDE) consists of 2 products – Method Planing Assistant (MPA) & Tool and Die Assistant (TDA) – both dedicated to the optimization of the Deep Drawing Process

Product details

Description :  

TDA maps complex 3D contours on complex sheetmetal components. The computation is based on the neutral fibre and considers all the material data (thickness, k-factor, orientation, minimum bend radius, etc..). 

Customer benefits :  

• fully integrated in CATIA-V5

• shortens individual process steps

• shorter overall process time to delivrery

• higher quality, thanks to more precise, more detailed and repeatable results

• less tool prototyping

• less tool error modifications

• fast amortisation (3-12 months)

• easy to learn (< 1 day)

• suitable for use in multiple industries

Available since :     Version 3.4.0 for CATIA V5 R20
DS prerequisite products :   CATIA V5 HD2 configuration (at least GSD)
Product languages :   English
