Die Tool Design

[ Main capabilities ]  [ The CimatronE advantage ]

CimatronE helps die makers maintain high standards of quality, while drastically shortening delivery times and cutting costs.

CimatronE’s Die Design solution enables users to design quality dies of any size or complexity with confidence. The solution provides you with a winning combination of a CAD system built with the die maker in mind, a high level of flexible automation, and a host of features and analysis tools. Whether designing on your own, or as part of a team, CimatronE allows you to work concurrently on different stages of the project and handle last minute changes in straightforward, effective ways.

Use CimatronE to streamline every step of the die design process, from the moment you receive the part to the finished product.

| Main capabilities

Data Translation  Data Translation  
CimatronE reliably imports and exports all standard CAD files and can also read and write native files of common CAD systems.
  Modeling and Assembly for Tooling
From total freedom to interchange between solid, surface and wireframe operations, to an assembly environment built for tooling, CimatronE’s system is attuned to the needs of die makers.
  Strip and Transfer Station Design
CimatronE provides dedicated tools to help you plan out the strip by visualizing different layout and process options.
  Die Set Configurations
CimatronE enables you to load an entire die set in just minutes utilizing standard and user-defined catalog parts.
  Punch/Matrix Design
CimatronE uses a rich selection of applicative tools, as well as the full power of its hybrid surfacing and solid capabilities, to simplify accurate punch creation.
CimatronE offers a large selection of built-in catalogs. Catalog parts are easy to incorporate into die design, and automatic functions can help with pocketing and threading if necessary.
Produce a clearly set out bills of materials and present all the holes in a project and their properties to simplify the drilling process when manufacturing die tools.
Convert 3D designs into 2D drawings for customers, the shop floor, or engineers.

Analysis Tools
CimatronE’s Die Design solution includes built-in Finite Element Analysis, allowing you to perform a wide range of accurate analysis and blanking calculations in the same environment as the rest of your design work.

| The CimatronE advantage
  • Integrated system: Complete the entire die design process, from parting line creation to full assembly, and continue with NC programming, all in one environment
  • Dedicated tools: Work in a CAD environment that is custom-built to construct the unique features of a die tool
  • Full coverage: Design and manufacture any size or type of tool, of any level of complexity
  • Flexible automation: Maximize your output with the right combination of automation and hands-on decision-making power
  • Change management: Quickly adapt your work to changes at every stage of the project, by using analysis tools and leveraging integration
  • Concurrent design: Allow multiple users to simultaneously work on the same assembly, significantly compressing design cycle times
  • Re-use/templates: Create catalogs, templates and work patterns from older projects and use them to speed up completion of newer projects
  • Easy to learn and use: Find the right tools available at the right time, with effective handling of large amounts of data and wizards to help guide complex processes
