Die Cost Estimating Software

DieEstimator simplifies die cost estimation, covering diverse die types and sizes, including progressive, transfer, and line dies on plate or cast shoes.

It follows a structured 6-step estimating process, from project information to the final estimate report. Use the measure pallet to capture crucial data from the part or process, supported by a virtual die estimating assistant for calculations and guidance.

DieEstimator offers full control over inputs and settings, guaranteeing consistent, business-aligned results that accurately reflect your costs.
