Pressed part / Stamping Feasibility 

For pressed part feasibility we use AutoForm software on every single project we do. LEARN MORE
 

Hemming feasibility simulation 

Feasibility study of a hemming process is very important to understand the required pre-hem flange angle and trim line development, cosmetic concerns and spring back prediction. LEARN MORE
 

Technical consultancy, manufacturing and production optimisation.

 Curve engineering offer the ideal resource to ensure the very best in technical consultancy, manufacturing and production optimisation. LEARN MORE
 

Tryout assistance

The best way to ensure that the lessons learnt during the simulation engineering phases are understood during tool try out is to have the simulation engineer present.  LEARN MORE
 

Tool / Die design 

Our designers have extensive experience and knowledge of customer requirements from all over the globe . Using VISI, CATIA, NX we can support both large and small projects. LEARN MORE

‘with over 30 years of metal pressings experience Curve offer a very technically proficient service.’ 

Our engineers including our founder owner Steve Hackett are all toolmaker trained. We treat stamping simulation as virtual try out rather than a simple reporting tool. Using this approach ensures the most robust process possible. If you have any issues with current production dies or newly delivered dies Curve can offer the very best in process optimisation ( line speed or scrap fall out )  and part quality / quality loop consultancy, all supported with in house stamping simulation services.

This is one of the things we do best pressed part feasibility  

For pressed part feasibility we use AutoForm software on every single project we do from conception (feasibility data, using DieDesigner for blank-holder and addendum shape) to final validation of the die. What you run in your simulation must mimic, as closely as possible, what you are going to manufacture. That way, you get a robust process and correlation…. and there must always be correlation. The output we see from the virtual die (the digital master) must match what we see in reality.

Hemming Feasibility

Feasibility study of a hemming process is very important to understand the required pre-hem flange angle and trim line development. Curve engineering can provide this service with expert advice and predictions on assembled spring back and cosmetic issues created. We can offer early feasibility study without having an inner panel by generating a theoretical thickness or from full stamping output from auto form carrying over all the thinning and strains. Spring back prediction on the assembly and subsequent cosmetic concern predictions can also be made.

 
consultancy

Try-out and manufacturing 

Drawing on the other 3 disciplines that curve engineering specialises in Curve engineering offer the ideal resource to ensure the very best in technical consultancy and manufacturing .
consultancy

Try-out and manufacturing

Utilising partners for design and manufacturing of progression, transfer, tandem, hand transfer dies, hemming anvils, jigs and fixtures for both measurement and assembly. If its full manufacture of dies, Production optimisation or die spotting Curve offer the solution.
