  • Improved design capabilities, with drawing and finite element analysis taking into account stretching and deformation, as well as identification of the punches needed at each station
  • Enhanced strip design that optimizes the use of the material, thereby reducing wastage
  • Availability of the necessary design and analysis tools to tackle complex die bases
