The added value of forging simulation with FORGE® at Renault Group

posted on November 06 2018

Renault Group uses Transvalor software FORGE®  to optimize its forging process.

Let's go through a couple of examples illustrating typical simulations carried out by the Renault Elementary Work Unit (UET Forge/Fonderie):

  • Simulation of the expansion and mechanical resistance of a camshaft
  • Simulation of the straightening of a secondary shaft with heat treatment
     

What are Renault main expectations?

  • Being able to simulate the complete manufacturing chain and understand the process impact on the final properties of forgings
  • Get more benefits through studies involving a rather atypical use of simulation (e.g. the holding of the piece under stress or the heat treatment impact)

'Forge et Fonderie' originally published in French, presents how Renault Group has reached its goal in this context and has acquired value added performing process & product simulation with FORGE®.
