New Incremental Forming Simulation Software
New Incremental Forming Simulation Software, Accurate Die Design Software Inc., Reseller and Technical & Training Center for LogoPress, Accurate Die Design Software Inc., Reseller and Technical & Training Center for LogoPress, LogoPress software, AutoForm company, LogoPress ProgSim12, SOLIDWORKS, LogoPress DieDesign software, LogoPress DieDesign PREMIUM software, AutoForm solver, Cut Optimizer, Cut Optimizer, ProgSim, LogoPress ProgSim
Booth D41130 LogoPress ProgSim performs accurate simulations of forming processes using incremental simulation technology powered by the industry proven AutoForm solver.

In Booth D41130, Accurate Die Design Software, Inc. (Brookfield, WI), North American Reseller and Technical & Training Center for LogoPress, will demonstrate the capabilities of LogoPress software. LogoPress has been developing die design software for the tool and die industry as well as flattening and blank prediction software for many kinds of parts. Since December 2018, LogoPress became an AutoForm company and has enhanced the simulation features of the software.

One of the newest products that we will demonstrate is LogoPress ProgSim12, which is incremental forming simulation software that runs inside of SOLIDWORKS and LogoPress DieDesign software or LogoPress DieDesign PREMIUM software.

The ProgSim performs accurate simulations of forming processes using incremental simulation technology powered by the industry-proven AutoForm solver. ProgSim is both affordable and easy to use and provides results for thinning, wrinkling, splitting, stress, strain, etc. It also provides multiple ways of displaying accurate springback results.

Automatic blank development done using Cut Optimizer in ProgSim eliminates the trial-and-error part of developing a die using physical tooling. The Cut Optimizer option simulates both the cutting/trimming and the forming of the strip repeatedly. After each iteration, Cut Optimizer adjusts the cutting punches that created the initial blank and then simulates the forming process again. It repeats this process until it reaches the target part maximum deviation that had been initially input by the user. This technology has been well-proven in AutoForm Forming’s Trimline Optimization. Don’t go in and out of the press several times as you develop the blank, measuring and cutting new blanks each time. ProgSim incremental forming simulation software will do it automatically. It uses the same AutoForm solver technology for solving as AutoForm Forming uses. Therefore, the formability results between ProgSim and AutoForm Forming are going to be identical and extremely accurate.

New Guide System is an All-in-one System
New Guide System is an All-in-one System, Agathon Machine Tools, Agathon Machine Tools, Guide System Plus, Agathon Guide System Plus, freely positioned retaining ring, guide system bushing is equipped with precision heavy-duty rollers
Booth D41326 Agathon Machine Tools’ new Guide System Plus.

Agathon Machine Tools’ (Bethel, CT) new Guide System Plus can be the answer to handling increased demands in productivity and the need to reduce overall production costs. The company will be at Booth D41326. To position the mold halves and/or mold components precisely or even close, it’s highly dependent on the centering systems being used. An innovative reinterpretation of existing guidance and centering systems now allows for guiding and centering of the mold halves to be done with one system.

By design, each bushing and pillar comes with a freely positioned retaining ring that is adjustable to various plate thicknesses. This allows for better adaptability when repairing or converting tools to newer guide systems. One component can be used in multiple designs and makes for stress free ordering and for the ability to keep spares on hand.

The guide system bushing is equipped with precision heavy-duty rollers. These allow for much higher travel speeds than conventional slide guides. With minimal line contact by the rollers, there is a significant increase in the serviceable life of the components by a factor of five-to-12 times as compared to slide guide systems. High precision rollers provide consistent, accurate movement of the mold halves/plates, insuring proper repeatability in alignment and achieve consistent part quality surpassing that of conventional guides and centering systems.

The Agathon Guide System Plus comes in 15-, 25-, 32- and 40-mm sizes and we offer engineering design assistance to help you determine the right system for your application.

Future-oriented and Sustainable Solutions for High Cleanliness
Future-oriented and Sustainable Solutions for High Cleanliness, Ecoclean, SBS Ecoclean Group, solvent-based cleaning with hydrocarbons, vapor degreasing, ultrasonic and injection flood washing, coolant and lubricant emulsions, polishing pastes, particles, abrasive materials, salts or fingerprints
Booth D40562 The Ecoclean product range is comprised of chamber cleaning machines for solvent and water-based cleaning processes, as well as multistage aqueous immersion and multistage ultrasonic cleaning systems.

Due to rising demands on component quality, new manufacturing technologies, modified processes and/or materials, digital transformation as well as stricter energy efficiency and climate protection targets, parts manufacturers are confronted with new challenges. Moreover, changes in regulations, for example in medical engineering, need optimized processes and plants. All these have an effect on parts cleaning. Even more stringent specifications on particulate and surface tension residual contaminations have to be fulfilled in a stable manner.

Ecoclean (Southfield, MI) and UCM — the division of the SBS Ecoclean Group specializing in high precision and ultra-fine cleaning — are responding to these demands with optimally adapted solutions and innovative developments. Ecoclean will be at Booth D40562. Adapted to the specific requirements and applications (e.g., manufacturing technology and level, type of contamination, cleanliness demands, throughput, weight), different systems are available for batch cleaning with water-based media and environmentally compatible solvents.

For solvent-based cleaning with hydrocarbons and modified alcohols (semi-polar solvents), the product portfolio is comprised of fully enclosed machines carrying the fluid in a closed circuit. All solvent-based cleaning systems come equipped with an integrated distillation system and filtration systems for continuous automatic reconditioning of the solvent. As a result, operator exposure to the solvent is virtually eliminated and an unchanging cleaning quality and long solvent life is ensured. The systems can be used from pre-cleaning through intermediate to final cleaning tasks and preservation, and achieves results in short cycles. Process technologies integrated as standard, such as vapor degreasing, and ultrasonic and injection flood washing, also contribute to this.

Water-based cleaning with alkaline, neutral and acidic media is the technology most frequently employed in industry. True to the principle of “like dissolves like,” it enters the field whenever water-based (polar) contamination — e.g., coolant and lubricant emulsions, polishing pastes, particles, abrasive materials, salts or fingerprints — need to be removed. For water-based part cleaning processes, Ecoclean’s product program includes an extensive range of both standard cleaning systems and customer-specific designs.
