Appraisal of CAD/CAE systems for the conceptual design of stamping tools – part II: case studies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This paper seeks to analyze the potential in the application of CAD/CAE software in the design of stamping tools, particularly in the conceptual phase, where the decisions are more relevant in terms of costs. This study compares two distinct software packages – Logopress3, and Dynaform – based on their functional features and the type of applications that they fit better. In order to take full advantage of these tools, different tool development methodologies must be followed. The abovesaid software packages were used in three case studies related to recently designed tools that were developed by a tool manufacturer. The results were quite remarkable: reduced development time due to the chance of analyzing different solutions in short time, as well as early detection of flaws. However, the use of CAE software should be used in a concurrent engineering environment, so that their potential could be fully explored.
