Simufact Forming is a simulation tool for hands-on professionals working with forming technology. Our goal is to focus the software to the practical needs of the users. Our customers confirm the fact that we have achieved a lot in this field. The operation of simulation software very often requires a lot of expert knowledge to build up and program complex models. This is not the case with Simufact Forming: The user can focus on the engineering-related details of the forming process. He does not have to deal with the physics of the forming process, nor with simulation-specific details.

Simufact Forming is application-oriented as well as easy and fast to master.

Simufact Forming's standard user interface allows for the software to be easily used and therefore, to become an engineering tool for developers of dies or processes whose daily work is supported and simplified. With a few clicks, all standard-forming processes can be simulated and evaluated.

Simufact Forming stands out due to its easy-to-use design and the fact that it only takes a short time to become familiar with it. The most significant advantages of the hands-on and user-optimized graphical user interface (GUI) are:

Easy, intuitive Windows style user interface (e.g. drag & drop)Very easy and quick to learnForming technology terminologyClear structure according to the object area (dies, machines, material etc.), process area (forming operations) and graphic model / results areaAll objects can be provided by databasesAFS technology (application function sets) simplifies useTemplate technology supports the user during the simulation set-up and conducts process-specific expert adjustments in the background. The user can fully focus on the process to be simulated. Numerical expert knowledge is unnecessaryContext-based help system for all user inputs with links to further information and example modelsAll simulation results can be displayed and evaluated graphicallyusing Descriptions, animations and diagrams while a simulation is still runningPre-processing and post-processing are united in one GUI. This reduces the need for training and simplifies the simulation of multi-stage processesExtremely easy to generate model variants.
AFS Technology
AFS (Application Function Sets) provides specific process-dependent configuration such as the choice of the right solver, the meshing technology, process-specific kinematics and advanced settings. Application-specific functions are activated and the software focuses on the process-relevant functions while hiding those functions specific to other application areas.

The new AFS technology means access to the simulation is more intuitive, faster, and more effective.

Operational concept
Simufact Forming comes with a newly developed GUI operation concept: Highly interactive context-related user dialogs allow a direct access to all relevant settings, which provides a completely new handling experience. Users benefit from an ease-of-use modelling procedure via mouse or touchpad, and finally a higher productivity in results evaluation.





Highly precise results
Simufact Forming takes into account all areas of forming technology and therefore ensures a highly realistic simulation of the processes. We achieve this high degree of precision by using boundary conditions and representations that have been conceived with the demands of the user in mind. Simufact Forming considers:

The kinematics of the machine, no matter what kind, and no matter how complexThe behavior of the material, elasticity, plasticity, hardening and softening, as well as effects that depend on temperature and speedThe friction and contact between the tooling and the workpieceThe thermodynamics of the process, workpiece heating, heat transfer into the dies and into the environment, temperature increase due to forming energy, friction heat, etc.
"As easy as possible - as complex as necessary"
The complexity and precision of the simulation model can be increased, if necessary. For example, single pre-defined model parameters can be replaced by measured values. A multitude of further functions allows the experienced user to model all conceivable processes, however complex they may be. For experts, user interfaces are provided to enable an adjustment of the calculation algorithms, e.g. for research purposes.

Unique Dual Solver Technology
Mature solver technologies, with the highest precision of reproducing the relevant physical effects, contribute substantially to the high quality of Simufact Forming's simulation results.

Simufact Forming offers two numerical calculation methods for the simulation that complement each other:

A finite-volume solver, based on MSC´s explicit Dytran solver, is used for the especially efficient simulation of warm and hot forging processes with significant burr formationA finite-elements solver, based on MSC´s implicit Marc solver for nonlinear applications, is used to simulate all process types.
Both solvers have continuously been developed by MSC over the past decades and make it possible to reproduce the complex, nonlinear physics of forming processes with the highest precision. These solver technologies offer the utmost precision in result by the use thermo-mechanical, elasto-plastic element formulation.

Besides the quality of the results, in practice the computation time is another especially relevant quality criteria. Only short computation times make the use of simulation software relevant for daily work. Simufact offers the efficient parallelization of simulation with its additional Performance module: The use of the highly effective methods, domain decomposition method (DDM) for the FE solver and shared memory parallelization (SMP) for FE and FV solvers, allows the computation time to be effectively decreased.

Applications of Simufact Forming
Simufact Forming allows for both two-dimensional (axisymmetric and planar) and three-dimensional simulations on the same graphical user interface. Three-dimensional simulations can use symmetries of the real process (cyclic symmetries as well!) to effectively reduce model size and computation effort. Any kind of transition from two- to three-dimensions, with or without symmetries, is possible.

All temperatures, from room temperature to almost melting point, can be simulated. The simulation always takes into account (even for cold forming processes) dissipation and friction heat, as well as the heat transfer with dies and the environment.

All (metallic) materials common to forming technology can be simulated. The material database shipped with the Simufact Forming Hub already includes:

Light metals (aluminum, magnesium, titanium)Steels (carbonaceous, low and highly alloyed, austenitic and dual phase steels)Non-ferrous heavy metals (copper, brass, bronze)Zinc alloysHeavy metals (lead, cadmium, zirconium, uranium)Special alloys (nickel-copper alloys, nickel-chromium alloys and others)Super alloys (Inconel, Hastelloy, Waspaloy, Incoloy, Nimonic)
In addition to this, typical tool steels for the characterization of elastic dies are included, too. The recrystallization behavior of steel and nickel based alloys can be examined with the module Microstructure Matilda.

All forming machines common to forming technology can be simulated. The user can describe special kinematics in table format. Rotating tools are simulated by the Rolling module. Simufact Forming simulates closed loop controlled aggregates such as those used for ring rolling or open die forging with the respective application modules.
