Deep Drawing Strip Layout Genereation in 3DQuickPress

Hong Kong, February 17, 2017 – 3D QuickTools Ltd. announced the release of 3DQuickPress Version 6.2.0 in February 2017 to the international stamping market. To facilitate the requirement from the world’s stamping die designers, 3D QuickTools Ltd. has introduced a new deep drawing functionality in the new version of 3DQuickPress to automate the strip layout design of deep drawing components.

To do the unfolding and strip layout design of deep drawing sheet metal component is quite tedious. The current design process will need the stamping die designer to estimate the number of drawing steps and the forming shape of each steps manually. The calculation may involve numbers of iteration. With the new QP deep drawing calculator of 3DQuickPress, the number of drawing steps and the intermediate shapes of each drawing steps will be calculated by 3DQuickPress. Stamping die designers will only need to do the final adjustment of the intermediate shape of the drawing steps to finalize their design. And the full features strip layout will be generated for the further die design process. This facilitates the easy in strip layout design of deep drawing sheet metal components in lithium battery production, speaker designs and kitchen wares productions without the needs of manual estimation. And therefore, increases the productivity of the industry.

With the request from major customers of 3DQuickPress in US, Germany, Japan and China, new features are added to the existing 3DQuickPress system to automate the deep drawing tooling design process for lithium battery, speaker and kitchen wares products. This new feature of 3DQuickPress can fulfill what the tool manufacturers’ needs.
