FORGE® is successfully used by various peers of the energy sector. A large range of components can be simulated including pinions, gears and other forged shafts, but also seamless steel tubes for the petroleum sector and rolled rings for the wind sector.
For open-die forging, the software has unique functionalities to simulate processes such as cogging, becking, mandrel drawing. FORGE® has a two-mesh algorithm to significantly reduce computation time for processes with incremental deformation.
Thanks to a ‘Multi Pass File’, all the movements of the part imposed by the manipulators, displacements and rotations, can easily be setup, and the simulation of all the blows is handled in a unique launch.
