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.

Get Your Hands Dirty! – How to Run An Adams-EDEM Co-Simulation

In my previous blog post I introduced the Adams-EDEM coupling that allows engineers to realistically simulate how bulk materials interact with their systems dynamics. In this post I want to give some insight on the workflow needed to use the coupling.

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 ...
