Abstract—The evolution of products, dictated by the necessity to survive in the market, requires multi manufacturing processes to be performed simultaneously. Progressive die is one type of tool in which several individual stations are arranged in sequence. Each station will perform one or more various operations on the part. It is widely used to manufacture parts for automobile and other industries. This process with the help of progressive die is a very inexpensive method for forming moderate to large volume parts while keeping labor and die costs down. This study is dedicated to providing a 3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) model for simple and economical progressive die construction which is suitable for the mass production of an industrial bracket. Different forces and stress convoluted in performing metal operations were also calculated with an appropriate formula. Generative designing technologies are also applied to yield the most efficient design economically as well as productively without compromising the optimum features of the tool. Various contours representation of data obtained is also presented in this work.

Keywords—progressive die, generative design, stamping, industrial brackets
