Our goal was to use simulation to engineer a solution to the client's existing formability problem - splits. We were able to successfully solve the problem through simulation.
Figure 1: The Problem The part shows three very prominent splits.
Figure 2: The Problem Predicted in Simulation Simulation was used to replicate the problem.
Figure 3: Draw Pre-Form shape An extra stage was added using a pre-form shape in order to fix the problem.
Final Form The customer's feedback confirms the result: "I decided to modify the 1st stage form tool, as per your recommendation, and the proposal was successful." Marco Smargiasso Technical & Marketing Manager, Malben Engineering, South Africa
