The application module Cold Forming serves the simulation of cold bulk forming processes and covers classic upsetting and impact extrusion, coining, hobbing, thread rolling, and drawing processes.
Simufact Forming Cold Forming serves the simulation of bulk forming processes below the recrystallization temperature of the material. The module helps you to prevent common manufacturing errors such as:
Simufact Forming Cold Forming considers all relevant boundary conditions, including stress rings and spring supported dies. The realistic prediction of the forming forces, while taking into account spring back effects and the elastic-plastic material behavior, is necessary for a high precision simulation of cold forming processes.
How can simulation prevent tool failure in conjunction with process monitoring systems?
A consortium from Simufact and Prokos GmbH, the specialist for process monitoring systems in forming technology, and the Möhling GmbH & Co. KG, the expert in the area of cold forming and cold formed components has analyzed this question. Read here the first results of the cooperation.
The entire process chain of component manufacturing can be simulated using Simufact Forming. Beginning with wire drawing, followed by multistage cold forming processes, and if necessary interstage annealing and final heat treatment. Trimming and piercing operations can also be considered. This allows the prediction of component properties based on local material properties, and their use in situations such as final stress analysis.
High forming pressures are characteristic of cold forming processes, therefore the component and the dies always have to be considered in process design. For this reason, we recommend to combine the Cold Forming application module with the additional Analysis module. It is our pleasure to advise you on the advantages of this combination.
