About ETA

Beginning with the 3-D part geometry, BSE can quickly unfold the flanges and flatten the geometry to produce a blank outline for blank size estimation along with piece price and scrap calculation.  Product feasibility and cost analysis can be thoroughly evaluated using BSE.   

Part Preparation - Surface Separation
The top and bottom surfaces of a solid-model part can be separated, showing the material from both inside and outside and the mean(middle) surface can be generated automatically. There are also multiple functions to repair surface defects.

Blank Development
BSE includes an industry proven solver (MSTEP) for the accurate prediction of flat blank profiles from 3-D part geometry. Designed for cost estimators, blank predictions consider both linear bends and the material stretch that occurs during the forming process to produce the most accurate blank possible.     

Nesting
The BSE module provides for 1-up, 2-up and multiple blank nesting.  The material usage and fall off is calculated along with piece price.  Minimum required blanking tonnage is estimated. Nesting optimization can be performed to calculate the best material utilization.

Cost Estimation Report
Automatically generate reports for cost estimation and quotation of the part material. Report output includes detailed descriptions of overall blank size, nesting configuration, pitch, coil width, material utilization, number of coils required to meet annual volume and total piece price for materials.

Feasibility Study using MSTEP
MSTEP is a one-step code which can be used for quick formability of a part.  Binder, addendum and drawbeads can be simulated with pressure pads, binder and drawbead force.

Trimline Development with MSTEP
MSTEP will quickly and easily develop the trimline throughout multiple stations.
