Logopress3, a Gold Certified Partner product for SolidWorks, has taken die simulation (die kinematics) and dynamic interference detection (as opposed to static interference detection) to the next level. A fresh new interface means that even the most complex progressive and transfer dies can be proven interference free in a matter of less than an hour in many cases, reducing setup time and eliminating costly redesign issues. Even dies that were not designed with SolidWorks or Logopress3 can be simulated.
Some of the types of presses whose motion curves can be accurately simulated include servo presses and link motion presses. Fourslide, multislide and Bihler machines can also be simulated. Varying progressions through the transfer die can be simulated along with stock lift at stations that is independent of the other stations. Rotation of the part can also be simulated as can every other function, including cams. View the die simulation pictured and many others at www.DieDesignSoftware.com.
