Simufact Engineering attends on MetalForm in 2015

Time:2015-08-21     From:MetalForm China



Hamburg, August 2015 In cooperation with Siempelkamp Simufact Engineering is attending MetalForm fair, September 16 - 19, 2015. Meet the company in Hall 9 on booth N20. Simufact Engineering presents its full range of product diversity – providing first impressions on their simulation software product lines Simufact.forming and Simufact.welding. 

Forming Simulation 
Simufact.forming is an established software product for the simulation of industrial forming processes. The simulation software is extremely robust and fast, which is needed to provide timely results and impact the design phase. It is easy to use and allows process design engineers to optimize the manufacturing process on a computer prior to a physical tryout. 
The software covers all major areas of metal forming: forging, cold forming, sheet metal forming, all rolling processes, open die forging and mechanical joining to name the most important fields of application. Simufact.forming supports in microstructural simulation, calculation of tool load, the material flow and the prediction of material properties during heat treatment. 
By employing Simufact.forming, customers can ensure feasibility and process stability. The software helps develop new products more efficiently, reduce the number of costly try-outs, and optimize material usage. 
Latest update: Simufact.forming 13 is available 
Simufact Engineering has released its new product Simufact.forming 13. The new version provides improvements in post processing, evaluation and the depiction of the simulation results, result precision, software stability, and speed. Simufact.forming 13 offers a range of functional enhancements. 
Welding Simulation 
Simufact.welding is a practice-oriented software for the simulation of welding processes. The software offers unique capabilities to calculate welding stresses, distortions and material properties evolution from a single graphical user interface. Simufact.welding helps users to: 
• Identify and minimize critical distortions with respect to assembly, buckling, imbalance and clearances 
• Explore the optimal welding method including 
o the usage of clamping tools, 
o decisions on welding directions and welding sequences, 
o influence of unclamping on welding distortions and residual stresses 
• Verify the quality of welding seams 
As a result, the number of development loops is reduced significantly. 
Simufact.welding conveys a broad understanding of the process to the user and aids in the process design by: 
• Visualization of process influencing values, especially on the temperature distribution, residual stresses and deformations 
• Virtual try-out of clamping, welding sequences, unclamping times, effects of preheating as well as variation of materials 
Upcoming Release of Simufact.welding 5 
The forthcoming release Simufact.welding 5 comes with an extended process type spectrum covering Arc welding, Laser Beam welding and Resistance Spot welding.
