Files and formats
|Processable file properties|
|Processable formats||.STP, .STEP, .SLDPRT, .SLDASM|
|Maximum file size||5 MB|
|Upload volume||Simultaneous upload of 50 parts|
|Assemblies||Dismantling of assemblies (up to 25 parts) and subsequent analysis of the contained individual parts|
|The App contains a history with all analyzed files|
|Usage options||Filtering options and keyword search|
|Storage space||Analyzed files are stored in the history for 3 months|
|Non-bent parts can be transformed into a bent part by automatic edge separation
+ subsequent download
|Sharp edges||Conversion of one-sided sharp-edged part and sharp-edged part (bending inner radius = sheet thickness)|
|Crossing bending lines||The shortest bend is split to enable the part to be developed|
|The Optimate App’s available interfaces|
|API||Programmable interface for integration into client systems|
|Feature to detect and display common design flaws in sheet metal parts.|
|Cutouts near the bending zone||Calculated with the following criteria: sheet thickness, bending angle, material, UT, LT||Tool pairing|
|Inner bending radius too small||If the inner bending radius is smaller than the corresponding sheet thickness|
|Minimum hole diameter not reached||0.8 x sheet thickness|
|Maximum bending length exceeded||10,000 mm (standard value)|
|Unwinding dimensions too large||Large format: 1,500 mm x 3,000 mm (standard value)|
|Maximum bending force exceeded||2300 kN (standard value)|
|Overlapping surfaces during unfolding||Part cannot be finished||-|
|Minimum leg length not reached||Calculated by: Sheet thickness, bend angle, material, tool pairing.
Affected leg is stretched to minimum leg length + subsequent download
|Feature for identification of optimization potential of sheet
metal parts with rough estimation of cost savings
|Distinctions||Highly optimizable, optimizable, not optimizable, cannot be analyzed||-|
|Feature for the automated redesign of sheet metal components with
alternative solutions for more cost-saving production
|Redesign||After checking the optimization potential, the sheet metal part is redesigned
to more cost-efficient solution variants + subsequent download option
|Cost comparison (before/after)||The cost saving is calculated by: Material, bends, laser time, number of welds,
length of welds, offcuts
|In the individual online consultation, the parts uploaded by the client are analyzed (individual
sheet metal parts and/or more complex assemblies). Possible solutions are outlined and
optimization proposals are developed together with the customer. A recording of this consultation
is made available afterwards. No optimized CAD files are created. This service can be booked via
the Optimate App. The Optimate parts consultation is carried out by a subcontractor.
Extra charges will apply.
