Design for Manufacturing
Our customers know what they want their product to do. Pentaflex tooling designers work with the customer’s engineering team to advise them on how to incorporate design for manufacturing into a current or proposed product. The tool designers at Pentaflex utilize AutoCAD Inventor 2015 to design tooling and the detailed components into 2-D drawings and 3-D models. By employing their knowledge of the stamping process and state of the art design technology, Pentaflex engineers can assist the customer to design a component that meets their functional requirements at the best possible value. Pentaflex tool designers also use AutoSuite software to do forming analysis such as material thickening and thinning, wrinkle tendency and tearing or splitting under extreme forming.
