The application module Simufact Forming Rolling simulates rolling processes of all kinds.
Slabbing, profile rolling, tube rolling, wire rolling or roll forming, calibrating or straightening, irrespective of hot or cold temperatures: With Simufact Forming rolling processes of all dimensions and across the whole range of rolling products can be simulated.
With every bid, customers expect delivery time, quality, costs, product innovation, and service, in addition to pogram-specific demands. Those who best meet these demands win more programs.
Take advantage of Simufact Forming for your rolling processes to get a competitive advantage and a technological lead, with advantages such as:
The application module Simufact Forming Rolling is especially well suited to chained process simulations that include rolling steps.
With Simufact Forming you can model the entire process chain of the rolling material. From the first heat treatment to the cutting/sawing of the material, rolling, controlled cooling, working on the final geometry (straightening and calibrating) and the last heat treatment – everything can be simulated. The extremely realistic results take all manufacturing conditions into account.
By using the existing interfaces, relevant forming results can be imported from Simufact.forming to Simufact.welding. This product can simulate and analyze the effects of welding (residual stresses, distortions, etc.) on the components. In the subsequent structural analysis, Simufact.forming can test the properties of the virtually manufactured component.

Process chain of roll forming (forming, welding, structural analysis)
The material databank includes about 750 materials with all relevant ferrous, nonferrous light and heavy metal materials and material groups.
In addition, the user can input his own material data or import external material data via standard interfaces.
For a realistic simulation of rolling processes, Simufact Forming takes into account the typical boundary conditions:
Rolling in sheet metal forming
Cross roll piercing in the manufacturing of tubes (complete view)
Cross roll piercing in the manufacturing of tubes (cross-section)
Forge rolling, taking into account roller stand stiffness
