Body Manufacturing Stamp 2020.0
Body Manufacturing – Stamp is the latest addition to the ESI Manufacturing portfolio. It has been developed to efficiently support the most common sheet metal manufacturing processes in the automotive industry (line die/transfer die, progressive die, hotforming).
Being integrated in the VISUAL platform, ESI is now offering a complete AUTOMOTIVE solution in a single environment for the chain, starting with single part manufacturing (sheet metal forming, composites, casting), continuing with the assembly of these parts into (sub-) assemblies (welding, riveting, gluing,…) and final performance testing under realistic conditions (crash, durability, ergonomics,..), taking into account dimensional and cosmetic quality at each stage.
This first release of Body Manufacturing – Stamp is addressing the line die process (cold forming) and supports the user through a powerful, state-of-the-art graphical interface with many intuitive functionalities to effectively setup even the most complicated processes in few minutes. The entire setup is purely done on CAD geometry (no more meshing concerns!) and requires only process related input parameters.
The defined process layout will be automatically converted to simulation data based on pre-defined templates, offering the possibility to set company standards. These templates can be easily shared with suppliers, ensuring consistent simulation results for specific parts and/or processes. Simulations are performed with the long-time industrially proven PAM-STAMP solver, to ensure the highest result quality and thus the best predictive confidence.
