SOLUTIONS FOR PROGRESSIVE DIE DESIGN
The fastest and most complete progressive die design process
The solutions software guides you through all of the stages required to design a progressive die, automating the most tedious tasks and streamlining the most complex processes. NX Progressive Die Design is a comprehensive solution for both straight break and freeform sheet metal parts. You can design the complete die structure with associativity to the part design at every stage

Product analysis: Validate part design for manufacturability using data quality analysis, formability analysis and flattened blank shapes. Apply the One-step Unforming and Formability Analysis technology to analyze and design intermediate forms and the flattened blank shapes for complex freeform parts

Structure design: Layout the die base assembly and die inserts for forming and punching operations. Efficiently and associatively design forming and punching tools. Configure the die based on libraries of inserts, die bases and standard parts. Automatically compensate for springback in bending punches and dies. Easily customize library content without programming.
