Forming simulation environment

  • 11-Jan-2010 10:37 EST

Simufact Engineering GmbH’s version 9.0 of Simufact.forming includes more than 100 new features and improvements to assist users in creating robust and reliable simulation models. The software features dual-solver technology with the potential to access the latest solver technologies of MSC.Marc and MSC.Dytran from MSC Software. The version also focuses on new application modules (open die and radial forging processes, ring rolling, and sheet metal forming), which allow a fully automated process simulation, including optimized meshing strategies. The ring mesher offers an efficient method for executing simulations of any forming process with axial parts, providing accurate results and a precise geometry with a minimum of elements. The sheet mesher allows the powerful simulation of sheet metal forming, starting with a 3-D CAD model of the blank sheet. It delivers a perfect form of the forming part, based on the high-precision hexahedron technology with a minimum of elements.
