Next-generation large-tonnage presses rely on new software for virtual integration

September 15, 2008 | By Bernhard Loske, Dietmar Schoellhammer

Operating large flexible press systems without sacrificing speed and quality can be a complex undertaking. New software takes CATIA to the next level. Users can really learn how to "drive" their large presses optimally by virtually integrating the slide motion, the transfer movement in a way that allows 1) the press to be built, 2) the transfer to be integrated and 3) the die to be built to most efficiently run in the system--a quantum leap. Now being used by Ford and Magnum.
