Improving the Case for Simulating Production Sequences

New release adds inductive heating and case hardening functions to the process of designing, planning, and evaluating

Simulation software has established a critical position in production processes for engineered parts, in metalcasting of course, but in other forming processes too. Thanks to computational fluid dynamics, manufacturers are able to test the outcomes of processes not yet initiated, based on the known effects of the interplay of materials, temperatures, and forces — and as a consequence gain deeper insight to all the material changes underway during solidification or formation. From that,
