Metal forming simulations are increasingly adopted by manufacturers to improve the quality and performance of products and processes while shortening development cycles so that these products can be brought to market earlier. Successful simulation of metal forming processes requires a range of input data about the geometry of the workpiece and tooling, the process forces and tooling motion and, above all, the characteristics of the workpiece material. The accuracy of the results depend on having a good understanding of this input data.
In this webinar we introduce manufacturing process simulation methods for a range of metal forming operations and then review the material characterisation requirements for processes such as stamping, machining, casting and forging.
