Reverse Engineering of Stamping Die Punch – A Case Study


Article Preview

The paper presents a methodology developed by the author for reconstructing surfaces of shaping the punch which is an element of the stamping die. It describes the entire process of the punch reconstruction i.e. 3D scanning, modeling, FEM analysis and processing. This process was implemented by the stamping press cooperating with the authors. Conclusions have been formulated.
