Solid: Tolerances

Am I in tolerance – YES or NO

A key question for the tool designer is the question of tolerances. Are we in tolerance when we go to production?

Performing a virtual try-out in Stampack Xpress, the tool designer himself checks the tolerances before the tool is constructed and without the need of any tryout on the press. Especially helpful are

✔  The high precision of solid simulation

✔  The target/actual comparison inside Stampack Xpress.

In the attached video, 4 simple bending operations are carried out. However, in solid simulation, we already visually see that the part is not tolerance in several areas. The details are than check with the included measurement functionality.
