This chapter presents two case studies; one demonstrating the use of finite-element analysis (FEA) in the design of a progressive die forming operation, the other explaining how software simulations helped engineers reduce thinning and eliminate cracking and deformation observed in clutch hubs formed using a three-step transfer die process. It also discusses the role of FEA and commercial software in the design of progressive dies.
