Abstract : Sheet metal working is an integral part of any major automotive industry. Die designing is one of the cornerstones of sheet metal forming in the industries. Progressive die is designed to perform piercing, cutting and bending operations on a work piece. Researchers from various parts of the world have worked on to improve the design of the die sets to improve the utilization of the machine. In this work, a cam and piercing progressive die set is designed and analyzed. The component is processed in two different machines using separate tools and labour for each machine. Hence the industry is facing problem in terms of extra handling, extra labour, cost, time and utilization. The objective of the paper is to combining three processes in a single machine by designing a progressive die set thereby increasing the utilization of the machine and decreasing the time and costs for manufacturing the component in the industry. In the proposed design, the move time has been eliminated completely and 33.3% decrease in time is observed in proposed design.
