Simulations of sheet metal forming are carried out in the Abaqus software, which enables a detailed analysis of contact conditions in the forming tool (taking into account selective lubrication, foil, etc.) and a wide range of material constitutive models (anisotropic behavior, degradation of the elastic moduli, FLD, other material damage mechanisms, etc.)
A great deal of attention is given to a detailed characterization of material properties. This is a key step to achieving accurate simulation results. In agreement with the customer, we can also provide a test of the material and production of samples.
You can send us a 3D model of tool functional surfaces or just a 3D model of the product – in this case we determine the steps of sheet metal forming and design the functional surfaces of the tool.
