Define 2D Strip
Based on design articles the strip wizard supports planning of the strip by dragging and dropping articles to their indicated position. Naming conventions, numbers and size of the stations can be adjusted flexibly. Take control about material usage and costs per station or optimize station dimensions.
Manufacturing operation locations as well as module sizes are to be planned for tool design tasks.
Stamping geometry for contoured cut stamps is defined by stamp reference parts.
Configure Tooling Setup
The plate wizard allows to define the tooling setup. Plates can easily be placed, moved and manipulated in the different views. Based on the modules of the strip the definition of a segmented tool is supported. Placing the strip assembly to each module allows collaborative design work.
Furthermore, reference patterns to locate stamping equipment can be defined and visualized in the plate wizard.
Use Supplier Library
PDX comes with a library of supplier components for piercing, forming and guiding and auxiliary equipment. This library does not only contain the Creo Parametric models, but also the rules about configuration, placement, dimension and cutouts. It can easily be extended for customer specific inhouse components.
Manage Bill Of Material
Prepare your bill of material information by a user friendly interface.
The SMARTHolechart functionality recognizes holes by geometry or by user defined information. Based on the configured hole types and tables, this information is placed on the drawing.
