Springmaker invests in press tooling design and spring simulation software

Lesjofors - European Springs & Pressings : 20 December, 2013  (Company News)
Leading spring manufacturer and distributor European Springs & Pressings has invested in a new 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) system and an Automated Vision Measuring System. The new 3D CAD system, which includes both hardware and software, comprises a state of the art 2D and 3D system with additional bespoke press tooling design and spring simulation packages.

Before elements and parts are manufactured, 3D CAD systems allow design and manipulation in a virtual environment. The simulation package allows stress analysis of materials, and model complex 3D geometry over an entire operating cycle. This can predict potential areas of concern and optimise design at the prototype stage. 
 
“This sizeable investment in our new CAD system is a revolutionary approach to spring manufacturing, allowing us the freedom and potential to operate in new, innovative ways. With 10 CAD stations, the system allows each of our toolmakers total access to its range of impressive functions, and gives us the ability to receive and manage all 3D CAD formats. With the bespoke tool design we will be able to reduce design time by up to 60%, which will commensurately decrease both the cost and time to market”, says Simon Taylor, Internal Sales Manager at European Springs & Pressings Ltd.
 
Together with the new 3D CAD system, European Springs & Pressings has also invested in an Automated Vision Measuring system. The new AVM system allows increased precision in measurement to an accuracy of two microns (0.002mm), whilst offering remote measurement of up to 99 dimensions of up to 200 parts simultaneously. 
 
“The new AVM system is linked to our server, meaning we are able to carry out and store ISIR, line inspection and capability study information with increased efficiency and accuracy. Because of the dramatic reduction in inspection time, we can increase both the regularity and level of inspection whilst reducing the actual overhead cost”, says Taylor.
