Thermo-Mechanical Calculation Method for Your Metal AM Processes

Simufact introduces the third generation of its metal Additive Manufacturing simulation software, Simufact Additive 3. Simufact Additive 3 will now provide a thermo-mechanical method, which allows users to have a clearer overview of the effects of thermal energy by providing insights for the global temperature of the component. Users can then use this data to determine ...

Manufacturing Simulation Reduces Development Costs and Time in Cold Forming Tool Design

Omni-Lite Industries is an advanced material company. They recently designed a new part that was exhibiting a unique material flow. The part was cold formed out of 1100 aluminum material.

The initial tool design was completed and reviewed using the Simufact.forming simulation. Upon initial review, everything seemed to be acceptable, with the exception of the volume of material in the flange of the part. The second station trap extrusion die radius was then reduced in order to accommodate the material volume requirements.
