Simufact.welding 4, the new version of the welding simulation software, will be showcased at EuroBLECH 2014. The main novelties are integration of a new simplification method to substantially shorten simulation time, an optional available meshing tool for complex geometries on CAD basis, and a row of functions that streamline the software usability.
For the simulation of sheet metal forming and mechanical joining processes the latest software version Simufact.forming 12 provides increased user friendliness and the new AFS technology. This new technology allows using process-related software functions for the specific fields of application. Specially elaborated setups provide unique options for an effective and numerical robust treatment of even three-dimensional issues. Besides highest accuracy of simulation results, especially in terms of the prediction of the component geometry or the joint characteristics, the special Simufact methodology supports a quick calculation of variants and thus an effective process optimization.
Simufact.forming comes with a volume-hexahedral-meshing. The user can expect highest result accuracy from the simulation, especially regarding the geometry after the forming process: sheet thickness changes, inner and outer radii, as well as spring-back effects.
The product lines Simufact.forming and Simufact.welding do not only pave the way for simulating individual production steps of sheet metal forming, welding or mechanical joining. By coupling the products users can consistently simulate their process chain without interfaces.
From Tuesday 21st October to Friday 24th October from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. directly at the trade fair stand Simufact hands-on simulation: in 60-minutes workshops for beginners the staff will give a brief introduction to products Simufact.forming and Simufact.welding – including hands-on modeling an example. The workshops’ objective is to provide insights into the diversity and use of numerical simulation.
Simufact at the EuroBLECH stand is at hall 11, B06 at the EFB joint booth.
