The task of Elinext was to develop an application for different platforms to make punching calculation simpler and easier to use for end customers.
To create a robust, simple application that is run on most of the existing desktop/mobile OSs. It should allow easily switch from metric to imperial units of measure and vice versa, download brochures for offline reading, and support the following languages: German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Czech, and Chinese.
The other challenge is due to many complex calculations, there should be a strong separation between the logic layer and the presentation layer, for maintenance and support.
Elinext created a very useful application that is not limited to two mobile platforms – iPhone OS and Android OS but can be used as a website too.
The Punch Guide app puts the most important parameters at the fingertips of work schedulers, engineers, and operators.
The following calculations are available with Punch Guide:
- Punching force
- Cutting clearance
- Prepunching diameter
- Maximum edge length
- Stripper selection
- Sheet thickness conversion
- Sheet weight
Some useful brochures are also available for download.
