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.
For manufacturing companies it is becoming increasingly important to reduce overall costs, and this can be achieved on many fronts, including design and production. Those involved in metal stamping in the automotive, transport, domestic appliance sectors (to name a few) are very familiar with this need and ask their solution providers for tools which ensure this increased efficiency and productivity. For the design of equipment for sheet metal molding, using comprehensive, integrated tools which can respond quickly to modification requests offers a significant saving in time and resources. Think3's Die Design solution meets this demand in a very specific way. Alongside the reliable ThinkDesign Tooling or ThinkDesign Professional solutions, it provides tools offering comprehensive management of die geometries. Die Design's specific tools are added to these consolidated characteristics of the think3 suite: 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.
