The 'Metal Stamping' market consist of companies and workshops specialized in the planning and production of molds for metals. They can be firms that directly deal with the molding or external suppliers of companies working in the automotive, appliances or others sectors.
To the firms that operate in this sector customers ask for 'quality' and 'punctuality' in the deliveries and the possibility to work with innovative materials that are able to guarantee better performance. These firms are constantly searching for new technologies able to reduce costs and maintain increased levels of quality and safety. One important aspect is the fact that these companies must realize the final part without altering the initial style of the product.
The general cost reduction is becoming increasingly important for the manufacturing companies that achieve this goal by taking into account various aspects, including design and production. Companies dealing with metal stamping in the sector of automotive, transportation, appliances, etc., are well aware of this need and search for tools that allow them to save money by increasing efficiency and productivity. In the scope of equipment design for sheet metal forming, the use of complete integrated tools, capable of promptly meeting the requests of modifications, allow companies to obtain significant savings in terms of time and resources. think3's Die Design perfectly meets this need in a very specific way, by providing all the tools necessary for managing sheet metal forming dies. Die Design's specific tools are added to the consolidated characteristics of the product to which they belong, ThinkDesign Professional: hybrid modeling for managing solids and surfaces with absolute transparency; GSM, a powerful creation/modification engine which allows work on the geometry in any of the product definition phases; and Interactive Solid Modeling (ISM), which allows modifications to be made to both native and imported solid models, thus producing a solution which in its totality allows the complete die to be designed and produced.
