Simufact introduces new versions of Simufact.forming and Simufact.welding

forg1029nlsimufactforming12Simufact is presenting the new versions of their two product lines Simufact.forming and Simufact.welding at the Blechexpo show in Stuttgart, Germany, 3rd-6th November 2015. Simufact.forming 13 is already available as Simufact’s solution for the simulation of forming processes. The release of Simufact.welding 5 is scheduled for mid-November.

Simufact.forming 13 convinces with improved stability and result accuracy. In terms of speed the current version is greatly improved compared with its predecessors: the calculation time of sheet metal forming process simulations can be reduced by up to 50%.

Users in sheet metal forming can now calculate new and individual result parameters from all simulation result parameters with the help of a user- friendly mathematical formula. In many cases, this new function renders the programming of subroutines completely unnecessary. The user defines individual color legends for the illustration of result parameters and gains a standardized evaluation of the simulation results following personalized criteria. The function mainly simplifies variable analysis post-processing in the design process. Routine evaluations can be automated time-effectively; the path to the ideal design variant of a manufacturing process is shortened.

For customers looking to use Simufact.forming for the simulation of mechanical joining processes, Simufact.forming 13 offers important advancements in the application module mechanical joining: the characteristic joint parameters of the joining process “self-piercing riveting” are automatically generated and displayed at the end of the simulation. This allows for a quick and practical assessment of the joining simulation result at “the touch of a button”. Furthermore, predesigned templates now help the user design punch-riveting processes.simufact_welding

Simufact.welding is a welding simulation software, with which users can calculate distortions, residual stress and material states that occur during welding processing in manufacturing from a single graphical user interface (GUI).

Next to the welding processes arc welding and laser beam welding, the new version Simufact.welding 5 also covers resistance spot welding – a leading joining process in the automotive industry, common wherever the goal is to join metal sheets in car body construction. Resistance spot welding exhibits good energy efficiency; due to the lower heat development during this welding process, the component distortion – a key concern of welding processes in series production – is significantly lower compared with e.g. fusion welding.
