Abstract: Stamping die industries had been a significant impact on research and development of new technology for bigger and advance. To sustain the stamping die industry under the current global situation, cost and time are most important factors that need to be focus. In this case study, the main problem of design and analysis of progressive die is cost spent for die fabrication is high, the number of station or stages is high that will affect the production time and lifespan of tool is short. This paper focused at the stages or station that will be redesign to reduce the cost for the die, station optimization to reduce time taken for stamping process and simulate the design of tools to calculate the life cycle of punch. The study is conducted through AutoCAD and Solidwork to redesign the die and strip layout optimization. Subsequently, the ABAQUS/CAE and e-fatigue are used to completed the analysis and life cycle results for punch with various design of punch edge. Theoretical analysis indicates that design of punch plays a vital role in life cycle analysis.
