Logopress3 die design software includes a recently trade- marked module, Die Debugger. This user-friendly module has been enhanced to include an S-curve variable that allows users to define an equation of motion with respect to a mathematical function. This is useful for many actions, including defining the motion simulation of a transfer arm whose motion must be independent of the press cycle. Die Debugger also has been significantly optimized from a per- formance standpoint, particularly the dynamic interference
detection portion of the software.

User-Configurable Die-Estimating Software
The DieMatrix software application from Tool Planners Inc., used for estimating sheet metal stamping dies, can be configured easily to users’ standards and produces detailed reports for those planning, purchasing or producing dies or stampings. The software measures 2D and 3D files and features a detail reports generator and SQL database to rap- idly produce consistent and accurate die estimates, according to company officials.
To save time, a built-in assistant suggests values for sta- tions, pilots, wire path, sensors and stock control items. The

software stores and applies die-construction and press- specification standards, automatically sizes dies, provides a detailed estimate sheet that breaks down die cost, and allows users to create and save special items.
Tables cover material and labor standards, press specifi- cations, die-size standards, labor rates, production materials and more. Users can generate reports for die descriptions, die cost breakdowns and die specifications.
