AutoForm-Compensator plus
Software for Geometry Compensation of Tool Based on Springback Results
AutoForm-Compensatorplus allows users to
automatically modify tooling surfaces based on
precise springback calculation. Engineers can easily
define compensation regions, which the software
automatically adjusts using the springback results.
The compensated geometry is then used for rapid
and accurate tooling validation.
The die faces are compensated in the opposite
direction of springback. Either the entire tooling
surface or selected regions may be modified.
Different regions can be defined within the tool: direct,
which is compensated directly; fixed, which remains
unchanged; and fixed draft, which serves as a
constrained compensation region for wiper flanges
and draw walls. Defining these different regions allows engineers to systematically control compensation.
The compensated tooling geometry is automatically used as input for the next simulation. Final part geometry
within the required tolerances is achieved with a minimum of correction loops. The engineers work is
therefore reduced to a minimum.
Springback compensation is carried out during the tool development phase to improve part and tool quality
before the real tryout phase begins. This procedure results in improved planning reliability in die development,
tool shop and tryout. The risk of later, costly changes to tooling or process is thereby minimized. The
application of AutoForm-Compensatorplus substantially reduces time and cost in engineering and tryout.
