Corner Relief Notches on Die Walls
DID YOU KNOW that using corner relief notches in your die
wall stud profiles can decrease labor for both part machining and assembly? In
some cases, labor savings up to 20% on die walls. How? By eliminating the need for
additional machining operations and part handling – rounding off the edges of parts or squaring
out the corners of pockets.
BUT did you also know that square notches versus round
notches will speed up your engineering time? While round notches and cutouts
may look appealing on paper, they can increase the drawing time by 15-18%.
