Innovative solutions for the 100% inspection and sorting of fasteners and special parts

Volume Plus: predictive forming control tool

Dimac sorting and inspection 100% Volume Plus

Volume-Plus-Logo-2017New release of Volume Plus Control Tool
Volume Plus is one of Dimac integrated suite of embedded software, satisfying the predictive forming control package consequently making predictable the manufacturing costs.
The first release has been further developed and upgraded.

What is it for?
Well, imagine that you need super-fast calculations of volumes and weights for a wide variety of non-standard complex shape components. Volume Plus is the powerful and flexible solution you are looking for.

Plus in the specific
Volume Plus gives you precious, immediate and visual information for all those operations requiring boring, repetitive calculations.
Its user interface is very intuitive and quick and it offers you with very few clicks:

  • extrusion ratios and forging limits indications
  • waste material considerations
  • holes, recesses, rings, ribs accurate descriptions
  • small and accurate geometries variations
  • a graphical display of loads distribution (for multi station processes)

It enhances:

  • pre-form punches volumes/geometries calculations
  • diameters for blanks to be rolled with special threads correctness
  • complex forming progressions creation

What is it not?

Volume Plus is not a CAD software or a finite element simulation package: it has not the same complexity and doesn’t require the same skills.

What’s new
Some substantial improvements to the software are:

  • the algorithm of the unique Help function that allows to modify – in seconds – the geometry of specific steps of forming progression, keeping automatically constant the volume of material to be formed
  • the algorithm of the loads and energy calculation, which overview becomes faster and more direct

Volume Plus latest version will be distributed by Dimac soon. A special limited-edition release of the package is available on each automatic 100% inspection and sorting machine.
