Dassault Systèmes and BMW Make Stamping Die Design Application

The two companies analyzed how stamped sheet metal parts definition and stamping die design process could be optimized with CATIA applications.

The two companies analyzed how stamped sheet metal parts definition and stamping die design process could be optimized with CATIA applications.

Dassault Systèmes is working with the BMW Group to establish solutions to increase efficiency for vehicle development programs. With BMW Group’s process and specialist know-how, the two companies collaborated to create a process-oriented, industry-ready solution for stamped sheet metal parts definition and stamping die design that will increase the efficiency of the parts design and production process.

Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA stamping die face design application provides a tooling experience used in the development of stamped body in white and chassis parts.

The CATIA stamping die face design application offers digital continuity in all phases of the development process. It also helps users reduce manual effort by making all relevant information such as process and geometry available for following process steps including press line simulation or cost calculation.

The CATIA stamping die face design application provides specialized method planning and advanced surface design-related features that allow a company to capture and reuse stamping-specific knowledge.

“The BMW Group and Dassault Systèmes have been working in a trusted partner relationship for years, and our co-developed solution has now been implemented successfully in the BMW Group production system,” says Laurence Montanari, vice president, Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “Our CATIA stamping die face design application can help automobile manufacturers and their suppliers to optimize stamped body in white or chassis parts and tooling engineering, while reducing associated tooling cost and design time. Tooling design and manufacturing is a significant part of the development cost of the vehicle, and its optimization is a key competitive factor.”
