High Speed Machining For Automotive Stamping Dies

The unique 'Milling Method' strategy simplifies the overall process by automatically selecting 3D surfaces to machine, filling holes, extracting tools from the database, and creating boundary curves, along with creating the initial casting stock or initial solid block. SMIRT ShapeMilling is a software product used to create automatic 3 axes and 3+2 axes milling tool paths for small or large components or castings.


Shop Floor Model Viewer For Automotive Stamping Dies

Setting the proper current axis makes it easier to analyze the functionality and the construction techniques for cam slides and complex dies, leading the operator to extract and the correct reference dimensions used for machining operations. SMIRT DieShop lets die makers, pattern makers, machinists, foremen and other users extract the information they need to build a die directly from a solid model without the need to generate plots / drawings.


Die Costing For Automotive Stamping Dies

SMIRT DieCost combines a CAD graphical interface specifically designed for die estimation with an input/output method that links the CAD data with formulas, standard components, castings, and rate structures. Load a Die Design from SMIRT DieShop and automatically identify and map into SMIRT DieCost the die components and castings used in the design.


Linear Milling & Drilling For Automotive Stamping Dies

All SMIRT products use the same, easy to use graphical interface ensuring no data is lost when communicating between the machining department and other company departments. Drilling holes can be collected and classified by SMIRT DieNC with drilling methods automatically applied from the user defined data base. The "drag & drop" technology is used to create tool paths directly on the solid geometry with no manual entry of coordinate values.


Die Build Planning For Automotive Stamping Dies

Using the SMIRT DieBuild operation manager, the operator on the “Shop Floor” can visualize the progression of the casting from receiving the rough casting through to the finish machining and die assembly. All operations are completely integrated with SMIRT DieShop and SMIRT DieNC and provide the shop floor with a graphical outline of the complete die build process.
