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.

Left of Test: How Manufacturing Variability Affects Material Properties

For manufacturers, materials property data plays a significant role in strengthening product design, manufacturing process, after market performance and profitability. This is mainly because knowing property data gives manufacturers the ability to determine engineering property matrix. Uncontrollable and unscalable variation of material property can result in lack of prediction, thus governance on the material behavior ...

Why Traditional Data Management Methods Are No Longer Efficient for Simulation

There are several engineering software environments that cover a broad range of products, derivatives, duty cycles, and multi-stage/multi-discipline simulations. Some manufacturers have a regulatory environment or liability issues that require them to use and document all the simulation activities they have performed, or the ones they need to optimize, which can mean that every simulation ...
