FORGE® NxT is a software solution for simulating hot, warm and cold forming processes. FORGE® NxT, which is the best product of developer TRANSVALOR for nearly 30 years and meets the needs of companies producing forged parts in various sectors such as automotive, aerospace, defense, energy, construction, medical, is preferred worldwide.
FORGE® NxT simulates closed die forging, open die forging, ring rolling, cross wedge rolling, reducer rolling, orbital forging, rolling, sheet metal forming, fixing and clamping processes, hydraulic press forming, thread rolling, die cutting, heat treatment processes. In addition to making it possible, it offers the opportunity to simulate heat treatments such as induction heating, induction hardening, carburizing, nitriding and tempering.
With its innovative technology, comprehensive capabilities, inaccessible performance, user-friendly and easy interface, it is the most suitable solution in product manufacturing, process determination and increasing forging efficiency.
THERCAST® NxT is a software solution created to perform casting simulations. As a result of simulation, realistic results are obtained. It has a unique thermo-mechanical basis that comprehensively addresses the many complex interactions between cooling, molds and all other elements of the casting process. Get more accurate simulations with high performance and scalability, providing simulation data for running more simulations or further manufacturing steps. It makes it quick and easy to set up new simulation processes and to conduct what-if investigations of existing processes. It has the ability to simulate casting processes from start to finish, presenting better situations and using more than one simulation tool.
THERCAST® provides information on temperature, stress and other attributes of any point in the manufactured part over time and provides useful information for future users of this part.
DigitalClone for Additive Manufacturing
DC-AM is a physics-based Integrated Computational Materials Engineering platform developed for additive manufacturing parts that models process-microstructure-fatigue performance in conjunction. The solution virtually analyzes additive manufacturing parts at the micro scale, including grain size, grain morphology, porosity. Customers stated that thanks to their DigitalColone modeling, the iterations applied for design optimization can be reduced by 75% and the cost of part qualification can be reduced by up to 50%.
Three main steps are used in DC-AM to predict the life of the part and to analyze whether it is working with the most suitable parameters.
Process Modeling: Residual stresses and strains related to process parameters.
Microstructure Modeling: Grain structure and porosity depending on the location and parameters studied.
Fatigue Modeling: Fatigue performance under certain loading conditions.
The physics-based simulation package has been used in different additive manufacturing platforms (PBF, DED) and various alloy systems that our customers are working with. Related materials are Inconel 625, Inconel 718, 7-4 PH, 15-5 PH stainless steel, Ti64 and AlSi10Mg alloys. Apart from that, simulation can be applied to new alloys with minimal calibrations required.
DC-AM is a physics-based Integrated Computational Materials Engineering platform developed for additive manufacturing parts that models process-microstructure-fatigue performance in conjunction.
A unique microstructure module is available that virtually examines Additive Manufacturing parts at the microscale, including grain size, grain morphology, and porosity.
It includes a proprietary fatigue modulus that estimates fatigue performance taking into account microstructural defects and variations.
It is a cloud-based software that takes advantage of AWS (Amazon Web Service) high-performance processing power for fast simulation.
REM3D® simulates the full injection cycle of thermoplastics or thermoset molding processes using a 3D finite element solution.
With REM3D® you can verify and optimize your complex polymer injection processes with an unlimited number of materials, with the best result accuracy on the market.
Reduce cycle time
For example: Use REM3D® to determine the optimum ironing time for minimum warping.
Analyze your filling defects
For example: Use REM3D® to simulate a complex mold filling process in 3 dimensions and/or with large variations in thickness.
Reduce mold design time
For example: Determine the best location for doors, coolers and/or heating cartridges with REM3D®.
Optimize your injection process
For example: Decrease the clamping force to determine the required follower pressure and consequently increase the number of voids per sprue.
