ExtrusionPower is an easy-to-use 3D Solid Modeling solution based on the Direct Modeling technology of PTC's Creo Elements/Direct to design the Dies for the Aluminium Extrusion Process. ExtrusionPower calculates the optimum design of the Dies by changing the parameters dynamically. High accuracy of the product's analytic and free form geometry assures manufacturability of the design process, guaranteeing the best result.

Product Features
ExtrusionPower is one of the worlds unique solution for the design of Aluminium Extrusion Dies. Aluminium Extrusion is an industrial metal forming process to produce long profiles with a constant cross-section. This cross-section is shaped by the opening in a steel tool known as Die. ExtrusionPower is supported with Manufacturing and Finite Element Analysis solutions. With the additional productivity tools for automating common design tasks, ExtrusionPower offers significant productivity gains and saves countless hours of design time. Extrusion Die Design is often based on the experience of the Die Designer. Sometimes this experience may be in form of company design rules, but often it only exists in the designers mind and it is difficult to transfer this knowledge to other persons. Ordering Information

Trial and error method is also often used, as new dies are first produced for testing only, before the final shape is fixed. Many time it is a big problem to produce the same Die once again after the Die completes his lifetime, if the Die is designed and manufactured with the tradional manual methods. ExtrusionPower is capturing the knowledge of the die designers by standardizing companys own design methods. Features
