Die Simulation

We use state-of-the-art Autoform simulation technology to evaluate and validate tooling designs, part materials and forming processes. Die simulation can identify potential problems with the design prior to tooling construction.

It can also ensure that the materials specified meet the demands of the production environment. In addition, we can simulate possible improvements to part quality, eliminating costly re-cuts of the tool.

Simulation analysis and testing can evaluate:

  • Thinning
  • Splitting
  • Compression
  • Wrinkling
  • Trim line optimization
  • Spring back and compensation

Surface and internal stress testing, using both 2D and 3D simulations, can also measure:

  • Die wear
  • Load
  • Volumetric strain
  • Distortion due to forming load
  • Radial and axial displacement
  • Effective, mean, radial, axial, hoop and shearing stress and strain

We analyze the simulation results throughout the entire design process, vastly improving the probability that the tooling solution will perform in our customer’s own production environment.
