Requirements: The task of Elinext was to develop an application for different platforms to make punching calculation simpler and easier to use for end-customers.
Challenge: To create a robust, simple application which is run on most of 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 following languages: German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Czech and Chinese.
The other challenge is due to many complex calculations, there should be strong separation between logic layer and presentation layer, for maintenance and support.
Results: Elinext created a very useful application which is not limited to two mobile platforms – iPhone OS and Android OS, but can be used as 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.
