In extremely competitive and constantly evolving markets, simulation is now a significant stage in the development cycle of forged components with high added value. It becomes an essential tool to represent "virtually" the metal deformation whatever the forming conditions and to study all the thermo-mechanical or metallurgical phenomena occurring during the processes. This provides you with a great lever for innovation and competitiveness.
What are your issues? How can simulation help you?
To detect defaults such as folds or cracks upstream and to guarantee a good resistance against mechanical stresses thanks to optimum corroyage and fiberizing.
To design first-time-right products and thus reduce the number of trials / errors and limit the machine occupancy rate during the prototyping phases.
To save on quantities of material used, increase the tool life and optimize the number of frappes for each forging sequence.
From the most traditional to the most particular processes, numerical simulation allows you to produce forged components with high added value.
With a simulation software, you become more predictive on various elements that get influence on your costs and the quality of your parts:
All these elements concern our FORGE® simulation software and are applicable for a large number of forging processes (closed-die forging, open-die forging, flat and long products rolling, ring rolling, shape rolling, cross-wedge rolling, electrical upsetting, shearing, sheet metal forming, cold forming, etc.).
It is suitable for any kind of metallic alloy.
With simulation, you will be able to:
Simulation has a positive and significant impact at multiple stages of your activity:
