We Use the Best Simulation Technology

AutoForm is an industry standard at virtually every automotive OEM, with over 2,500 users in 40 countries. Known for its innovation in rapid, reliable validation of design, engineering, and manufacturing processes, AutoForm is now available for tp rest of the industry via our online, on-demand service. 

This technology has allowed us to re-invent forming simulation. Our online service offers you forming simulation that is available anywhere, anytime, to whatever scale you need it. With our simulation technology, you get all of the benefits that the expertise and knowledge a professional engineering team can provide, without any of the overhead of owning the software.

Lodent Precision

lodent-precision-case-study

The Challenge:

  • This project's goals were to design a forming process with a maximum of 20% thinning on the plunged holes in the fewest possible operations. The forming process simulations were to eliminate forming problems — splits, wrinkles, and other negative outcomes — before the tooling was designed and manufactured.

The Result: 

  • The dimple was drawn and through our simulation, we were able to successfully reduce the process to six steps in order to minimize the thinning percentage to the required level. The precut areas were then developed to allow the material to form in the way our client needed, giving them the confidence to move the model into the final stages of design and, finally, manufacture.

Corsair

Corsair-Forming-418x253

Connecticut Corsair is a volunteer organization dedicated to the promotion of education and local businesses in the State of Connecticut. They are also leading an aircraft restoration project aimed at restoring to flight the official State Aircraft of Connecticut — the Chance-Vought F4U Corsair.

The Challenge:

  • Recreate the forming process for a section of wing for the Chance-Vought F4U Corsair, a World War II fighter.

The Result:

  • After simulations proved the viability of the forming process, Connecticut Corsair successfully formed the wing section on the first attempt.

Die Engineering

die-engineering-case-study

Die Engineering Pty Ltd, a regular StampingSimulation customer, needed to be sure that a part of a complex project could be formed successfully. Earlier prototype parts had been made with unacceptable wrinkles and it was, therefore, the job of our simulation team to determine how to make this part in way that prevented any wrinkling. 

The Challenge:

  • Design a forming process that eliminated severe wrinkling or splitting from the part.

The Result:

  • Using the simulation results, acceptable parts were made at first tool tryout with no adjustment other than increasing binder pressure to get optimum draw results.
