Accurate Die Design/LogoPress3

Accurate Die DesignLogopress Corp., the developer of SolidWorks-based Logopress3, sold in over 30 countries around the world, has spent 100% of their nearly 25 years of experience in business exclusively developing die design and flattening related software. They have been developing die design software longer than any 3D die design software developer in the world, which makes Logopress3 the 3D die design software that takes advantage of the longest user experience and feedback.

Their industry-leading Logopress3 die design software is capable of designing the largest automotive-type dies as well as dies for tiny parts that have several hundred stations. Logopress3 has flawless integration with SolidWorks, with a simple and straightforward interface, which means a shorter learning curve. Logopress3 was the first product in the world to receive SolidWorks Gold Certification without requiring any changes whatsoever. One customer described the tight integration with SolidWorks by saying "If you know SolidWorks, you know 80% of Logopress3."

  • Advanced and complete unbending and flattening functionality that can be used with a “dumb” imported model from any CAD system, even for dirty models.
  • Strip Layout functionality that works with either solids or surfaces and can be used for progressive dies or transfer dies, or simply for quoting.
  • Round Draw module that allows the user to create a strip layout for a round drawn part in a matter of a few minutes!
  • Tool Structure assistant that organizes the creation of the die assembly and also helps to automate the tool & die Bill of Materials (BOM).
  • Intelligent Standard Component Library that creates all holes at the same time as it adds the standard catalog components.
  • Intelligent Animation and Dynamic Interference Detection to catch potential mistakes at the design stage rather than at the build stage.
  • Automatic 2D drawing creation along with many other drawing enhancements dedicated to die design, including tool and die hole charts.
  • Certified SolidWorks Gold Partner Product.

The United States and Canada Logopress3 Technical Center (sales, training and support) and development partner is Accurate Die Design, Inc., a firm with over 55 years of combined employee experience specifically in the tool & die and metal stamping industries.

Logopress3 and Accurate Die Design, Inc. were recently presented with the SolidWorks User Group Network (SWUGN) 2012 Partner of the Year award by Richard Doyle, User Community Manager for SolidWorks Corporation.

Logopress3 – Experience The Power



AutoForm offers software solutions for the die-making and sheet metalforming industries. The use of AutoForm software improves reliability in planning, reduces the number of die tryouts and tryout time, and results in higher-quality part and tool designs that can be produced with maximum confidence. In addition, press downtime and reject rates in production are substantially reduced.

Based on practical, industrial knowhow and sheet metalforming expertise, AutoForm’s solutions form a complete, integrated system with highly specialized functions to analyze, review and optimize every phase of the process chain.AutoForm provides solutions all along the sheet metal forming process chain.

They range from stand-alone modules for small and mid-size companies to complete, integrated multi-module systems for large companies.

Software Solutions along the Entire Process Chain

Due to a complete integration of all the AutoForm software modules, concepts and results from earlier phases can be easily and directly used in later phases. This enables customers to benefit from the power of simultaneous engineering, which optimizes time, cost and quality, thereby maximizing efficiency and productivity.

Accuracy, Speed & Cost of Ownership

AutoForm software is well-known for accurate results and short computation times, and for its highly intuitive user interface for reliable and practical use in design, engineering and production environments. This powerful combination of accuracy, speed and user-friendliness results in revolutionary time and cost savings, and makes AutoForm the leading software in its field.

AutoForm is the software of choice for:

• Product designers,

• Formability engineers,

• Draw development experts,

• Process layout specialists, and

• Tooling, stamping and manufacturing engineers.

For hundreds of customers, both large and small, AutoForm software provides the best total cost of ownership. It is optimized to run on standard computers with no special hardware requirements. It is compatible with all major CAD systems and can easily be used by employees across different departments and functions. Existing workforces can be trained very quickly to become productive with AutoForm software.

AutoForm software is designed to seamlessly complement existing business processes without introducing any new workflow bottlenecks. All this results in highly cost-effective software solutions, which maximize productivity in the customer’s own environment.

Today, more than 3000 users in more than 600 companies in 40 countries around the world trust in and rely on AutoForm for their key engineering and manufacturing operations.

DEFORM™ is an finite-element analysis (FEA) software system used to analyze metals manufacturing processes including cold forming, hot forging, rolling, extrusion, heat treatment, machining and mechanical joining. It provides a virtual trial run environment that allows production testing on the computer rather than the shop floor. Designers, engineers and analysts use the software to predict shape, defects, stress, temperature, load, tool life, microstructure, distortion and much more. This information is critical to new product development or process troubleshooting. Hundreds of companies, ranging from large multi-national corporations to small family-owned businesses, rely on DEFORM throughout the design and development process.

Manufacturers have applied DEFORM to a wide variety of sheet metal forming applications including drawing, stamping, coining, ironing, bending and blanking. Its bulk forming simulation methods, utilizing solid finite-elements, are particularly useful with small sheet metal parts. Solid elements allow thickness variation to be explicitly captured in the modeled geometry. They may also provide mechanical, thermal and microstructural property gradients through the entire sheet thickness. Other results of interest include strain (work hardening), deflection, springback, wrinkling and fracture. DEFORM supports a variety of equipment types including mechanical, progressive or transfer presses. Spring-controlled tooling and sliding dies are also supported. Its easy-to-use interface and powerful FEA capabilities make DEFORM a flexible solution for modeling sheet metal and bulk-shaped parts.

Scientific Forming Technologies Corp. (SFTC) was founded nearly two decades ago with a mission to provide state-of-the-art design and analysis technology to the metal forming industry. Today, SFTC develops, markets and supports the DEFORM System. SFTC staff has extensive experience providing software and solutions to meet customer needs. SFTC is also leading the development of the next generation of simulation capabilities in material modeling, design of experiments (DOE), optimization and probabilistic modeling.
