CFM successfully implements 3D tools for
progressive die design
Singapore company delivers quality metal tooling by applying 3DQuickPress and SolidWorks

Chicago, Mar. 25, 2007 – CFM manufactures a diverse variety of stamped metal components for a wide range of products in the electronics, automotive, telecommunication & technology, and M&E industries.  Having over 20 qualified tool designers with both 3D and 2D design skills, CFM’s offices located in Singapore, Malaysia and China are able to deliver high quality stamped metal parts without the usual development delays.  CFM began using 3DQuickPress in 2004 as a pioneer in the application of 3D modeling in metal stamping tool design.  The implementation of 3DQuickPress for tool design at CFM has enabled the company to maintain its position as a leader in metal stamping and tool design, amongst many other competitors in the sheet metal business.

“CFM evaluated solutions from all major CAD suppliers and selected 3DQuickPress and SolidWorks.   The user-friendly interface has shortened the learning curve for our designers, and was an important factor in our 3D design tool selection process, as was the systems versatility in handling different types of tool designs.  Due to the associative workflow between 3DQuickPress and SolidWorks, we are able to quickly handle design changes from customers, even from tooling drawing to tool room.  With the ability to handle complex die structures in 3DQuickPress efficiently, the associative workflow between the two products allows CFM to guarantee the quality of manufacturing data, without the usual mistakes.  Error free production is our commitment to CFM’s global customers,” said K.K. Ko, Design Manager at CFM.

3DQuickPress was first introduced to CFM in Singapore by SeaCAD Technologies in 2004, enabling CFM to improve communication with vendors and tool design departments. “SeaCAD is an extremely important part of our on-going 3DQuickPress implementation, providing comprehensive training and after sale technical support,” said Mr. Ko. 

“CFM was SeaCAD’s first commercial 3DQuickPress customer.  To ensure CFM’s success, it was therefore critical for both CFM and SeaCAD’s technical teams to work closely together, especially in the early stages of their 3DQuickPress implementation.  We are extremely pleased with CFM’s success using the products and look forward to supporting the continued expansion of 3DQuickPress and SolidWorks throughout their organization,” said Conrad Montgomery, SeaCAD Technologies Managing Director and founder.
