die engineering process



  1. The first step in die design. In this planning phase, the part needing the new die is analyzed to determine the die configuration and the press requirements. The process consists of deciding the type and thickness of the material used in making the part, the part configuration, the dimensional tolerances of the part, the quantity of parts to be made, and the funds available for the project.
