Sheet Metal Manufacturing

Improve your sheet metal manufacturing operations. Sheet metal is among the most common of construction materials because it's strong, robust, lightweight and has a relatively low cost. Sheet metal design is the process of defining geometry such that sheetmetal can be cut, bent, or punched to meet product requirements. Whatever the industry, the sheet metal designer has the same concerns: reducing scrap, controlling cost, enhancing the ease of manufacturing, and getting the best product to market faster. Don't accept anything less than purpose-built capabilities for sheet metal design; ones that take into account the unique characteristics and requirements of sheet metal.

Progressive Die Extension

Progressive Die Extension (PDX) provides guidance to walk you through automatic strip layout definition, cut stamp creation and placement/modification of die components. Eliminate error-prone manual tasks by automatically creating clearance cuts, drilled holes and documentation. Use the commands on the PDX menu to create article references to sheetmetal parts, build a strip, create a tool assembly, draw a new die, create equipment or parts, run functional analyses, and more.
