Simufact Engineering has finalised version 9.0 of Simufact.forming, its integrated massive-forming solution.

The release includes more than 100 new features and improvements for the creation of robust and reliable simulation models.

In the 9.0 release, the Dual-Solver Technology has been developed and allows access to MSC.Marc and MSC.Dytran from MSC Software.

The version focuses on open-die and radial forging processes, ring rolling and sheet-metal forming applications, which allow a fully automated process simulation, including optimised meshing strategies.

In this context, the ring mesher enables simulations of any forming process with axial parts.

The mesher delivers accurate results and a precise geometry with a minimum of elements.

Also available is the sheet mesher, which allows the simulation of sheet-metal forming, starting with a 3D CAD model of the blank sheet.

The mesher delivers a perfect form of the forming part, based on high-precision hexahedron technology with a minimum of elements.

Possible applications are forming processes of sheet metal used in structural components, such as in the automotive industry.

This technology is suited for a use in spin and flow forming process applications.

The parallelisation, introduced in version 8.1, has been enhanced and offers the ability to calculate finite element simulations much faster, using the domain decomposition method.

The release also offers enhancements for the simulation of cold massive forming, forging and rolling processes.

Within the Simufact software environment, the user can access different application modules for different production areas.

Simufact.forming integrates the products MSC.SuperForm and MSC.SuperForge, and is based on the standards of the MSC.Marc and MSC.Dytran solver technology.
