A Progressive die is used to transform flat strips of sheet metal into a formed part. This transformation is performed progressively by a series of stations that stamp the material into a desired shape. The progressive dies reduce the time and cost of producing complex sheet metal components. The design and manufacture of these dies is difficult and complex. Computerized systems have been proved very useful tools for this task. In this paper, a computerized system for the design of the stamping…
