Tool and Die Functions

Logopress3™ also includes powerful features to “Mount” (cut all openings in all plates) the cutting, bending and forming punches. Punch Mounting would be a huge amount of work without this dedicated feature since so many die components are involved which each needing different clearances. Logopress3™ easily manages this with only a few mouse clicks and dialog box settings. After you define the first one, Logopress3™ stores your preferences in order to save even more time for the next mounting.

Punch Mounting
Key functions:
  • Cutting punches
  • Automatic plate recognition
  • Bending punches
  • Coining management
  • Forming punches
  • Cut all openings in all plates
  • Clearance management
  • Relief type management (Tapered or Stepped relief)
  • Store user defined preferences
Dynamic Interference Detection and Animation

In addition to all of these tools & features designed to increase your productivity, Logopress3 also includes an Intelligent Animation command, which provides far more than just an interesting but non-functional animation. it automatically does interference and collision detection throughout the die while showing the entire die operating as if it were in the press, including the strip lifting and advancing with each press stroke. This assures that mistakes are caught at the design stage and not at the much more expensive and time consuming build stage of the die.

Key functions:
  • Automatic bend analysis
  • No time consuming setup required. Just press the icon and set your press stroke, stripper travel and strip lift
  • Detects collision during strip advance through the die
  • Highly visual and accurate representation of the die running in the press
  • Finds clearance issues before the die goes in the press
