We closely collaborate with our scientific partners on research and educational projects. Here we have selected a number of our scientific partners and included a short summary of the projects.
Joint research projects with RWTH Aachen (Examples):
Project StrucSim: Development of intelligent algorithms to provide microstructural-based flow curve models for the forming simulation of lightweight materials.
Projekt ICMEg: Integrated Computational Materials Engineering
Projekt DPForge: Combined Process and Alloy Design of a micro-alloyed DP Forging Steel based on Integrative Computational Material Engineering
IWT Bremen (Interdisciplinary Research for the Changing World of Metalworking/ Stiftung Institut für Werkstofftechnik)
Department of metal technology and information systems
AGH Simufact Class: student training courses for the advanced use of simulation software
Advance Manufacturing Technology Excellence Center (AMTEx)
Founding of a research and training center – “Research & Training Centre for Virtual Manufacturing Technology and Process”
ITU Istanbul Technical University (Istanbul, Turkey)
The Istanbul Technical University (ITU) has founded a “virtual manufacturing lab” in cooperation with Simufact Engineering. The lab will advance teaching, research and the development capacity of the ITU in the field of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and the virtual testing technologies.
Winner of the Academic Relationship Award in 2014 (named “Scientific Award” until 2014)
The prize was awarded for cooperation on the pioneering project “Process optimization through oscillating tool movements in bulk metal forming.”
Winner of the Academic Relationship Award in 2012 (named “Scientific Award” until 2014)
The prize was awarded to the professorship for “virtual manufacturing technology” at the institute for tool machines and manufacturing processes at the TU of Chemnitz for the long-standing, close and trusting cooperation on a number of funding projects of the DFG, ZiM as well as within a SFB (Special research project). Of all the special forming methods investigated in the projects, such as pretension pressing, joining or incremental forming processes as e.g. spin extrusion, many were first developed at TU Chemnitz and have been successfully applied in the industry. It is a noteworthy scientific achievement that the numeric simulation of the methods was always completed in parallel – several methods were solely developed based on the simulated pre-optimization using Simufact’s software. The ZiM-Project “Hybrid Mesh” represents a milestone in meshing technology for Simufact.

MSC Competence Center
Competence Center for the regional industry at the university´s Institute of Engine and Power Plant Engineering.
The Competence Center will allow Samara University to solve engineering challenges, and demonstrate the solutions to the industrial enterprises of the region.
Furthermore, our simulation and manufacturing specialists are involved in an advisory role on over 20 project committees.
