Press Shop – products and solutions for highest flexibility

Digital simulation leads to rapidity, retrofits for press lines reduce energy consumption and Press Analytics Services lead to higher effectivity of all presses. That's only a part of the solutions for press plants.

Tasks in the press shop

Investments in automotive stamping dies and press lines are expensive and require long lead times. Streamlining the development and commissioning of new lines and flexibly adapting existing lines to new designs are key to maximizing return on investment (ROI).

Part design

NX Part Model Preparation

Inner and outer body panel part models are the manufacturing team’s primary input for initiating the stamping die development process, which requires a long lead-time.Siemens PLM Software provides the design and modeling tools for quickly and effectively generating and editing complicated automotive body panel parts, and tools for working with data imported from other CAD systems.

Die planning and feasibility

NX Tooling and Fixture Design

Die lineup spacing, opening height, and material travel speed are all critical factors that directly impact the overall efficiency of the working press line. With Siemens PLM Software you can ensure planned production targets are achieved by defining the die lineup and optimizing the press line’s efficiency. Specialized design and analysis tools enable you to quickly and virtually assess the feasibility of forming parts for highly accurate die face designs.

Press Line Simulation

Press Line Simulation

The Siemens Press Line Simulation enables you to simulate a complete stamping line including single press stations, die kinematics, mechanization, part geometry and flow, as well as handling devices such as linkages with cups or shovels. It allows you to optimize and validate the full working design of equipment long before it's built and installed. Reducing pre-production correction time results in a faster time to market for the final product.
