is there any way to find the center of the shank for a progressive tool?
where to mount the shank on top bolster so that the center of pressure of the tool matches with the center of the power press
I'm not sure if it is what you are looking for, but the center of mass for that profile can be pretty easily found.
- Convert your graphic image into a vector format
- Import the vector format
- Extrude the profile to make a 3D solid
- Find the center of mass
The question is how you want to define the center of mass. Where should it be measured from?
