Hong Kong, July
- The new release caters to metal stamping in two major streams of
industry, namely electronic and automotive.
irregular features are very common in electronic parts. With the
introduction of Geometric Pattern Recognition Technology, V5 is able
to extract identical features from dumb geometry and assign the
corresponding manufacturing processes automatically. More corner
matching options to fulfill different requirements. Processes
grouping make strip layout iteration much faster and meaningful than
before. V5 introduced round shank for ob-round hole which is used
extensively in electronic part stamping. High precision required by
electronic industry makes the die set and its components very
costly. Changeover tooling is a common practice to produce similar
parts by the same tooling through proper tooling setup. V5 enables
the design of changeover tooling easier and produces the setup
the electronic industry, automotive industry is not likely to have
ten identical features in a formed part which is much bigger than
electronic parts in general. The design and manufacturing workflow
of the auto part is the key success factor. V5 is able to divide a
die design project to different designers in a way to fully utilize
their expertise. Their results are brought back to the master die
set assembly automatically. With designers working concurrently,
the design time is compressed.
To bridge the
design and manufacturing gap, another key enhancement in V5 allows
design to manufacturing automation through the propagation of
manufacturing information to CAM systems.
“As a past user
and current support technician, I see V5 incorporates real ‘Power’.
It empowers companies with the tools to lead the industry in
progressive, stage or fixture design. 3D QuickTools accomplished
this by listening to our current users, looking for ways to improve,
and incorporating new tools for all facets of industries,”
said Ron Flaugh, Technical Manager, STS.
3DQuickPress V5 will be available to the worldwide market in Q3,
2009 in 5 languages through 3DQuickPress authorized resellers.
