Sheet Metal Springback Compensation

Sheet Metal Springback Compensation

The Advanced Modelling module of VISI is used to apply springback to a complex automotive sheet metal component based upon the original CAD model and the result of a light scan

 
Springback compensation from 3D curves

Springback compensation from 3D curves

The Advanced Modelling module of VISI is used to apply springback to a complex automotive sheet metal component based upon the original CAD model section curves that define the overbend value

 
Die block construction

Die block construction

Construction of a die block from source CAD model using a combination of solid & surface techniques. This movie shows skin extraction, trim edits, tangential surface extension, fillet creation and boolean operations to close to a solid model.

 
VISI PEPS Wire EDM

VISI PEPS Wire EDM

Developed specifically for the precision engineering, tool-making, mould & die, press and extrusion tool industries, VISI PEPS-Wire provides automatic feature recognition of wire features including tapered, variable taper and 4 axis directly from solid geometry creating reliable and proven NC code for all machine tools.

 
VISI Progress - 3D Flange Unfolding

VISI Progress - 3D Flange Unfolding

Step by Step unfolding allows the designer to plan each forming stage by dynamically adjusting bend angles. Flexible editing allows the removal or addition of extra stages providing the user with complete freedom for unfolding experimentation.

 
VISI Progress - Multi-step development

VISI Progress - Multi-step development

Multi-Step development of 3D press form using a combination of manual modelling techniques, hole filling, blank development onto custom binder and material thinning analysis to highlight part creasing or tearing.

 
Bend relief for automotive stampings

Bend relief for automotive stampings

It is often necessary to edit complex panels after running a press trial. Due to part wrinkling or material thinning causing tearing, the fillet radii are typically modified in an attempt to compensate. See how VISI has automated this process.
