Altair HyperWorks is a comprehensive, open-architecture CAE platform, which includes best-in-class concept design, modeling, meshing, analysis, optimization, reporting and simulation management solutions for a wide variety of applications.
Altair HyperForm is a comprehensive finite-element-based sheet metal forming simulation framework. It offers a complete solution for managing the entire stamping simulation process. Robust modules for feasibility and cost analysis, parametric draw die design, final process validation, process and die structure optimization, and results visualization are included, for end-to-end stamping simulation.The entire forming process is captured with a suite of highly tailored and configurable analysis and simulation tools. HyperForm accurately predicts predict areas of wrinkling, high thinning, splits and springback prior to cutting steel, minimizing the costs associated with die re-machining and press development time.
CimatronE offers a leading system for 3D assembly-based die design that allows you to perform all elements of the design process, including strip layout, semi-automated creation of forming shapes, springback compensation and tool modelling in a single environment. CimatronE’s truly hybrid environment allows total freedom to interchange between solid, surface and wireframe operations. With a wealth of solid and surface operations dedicated to die making it allows for a smooth transition from strip or transfer process design, through tool design.
LS-DYNA is a general-purpose finite element program capable of simulating complex real world problems. It is used by the automobile, aerospace, construction, military, manufacturing, and bioengineering industries. LS-DYNA is optimized for shared and distributed memory Unix, Linux, and Windows based, platforms, and it is fully QA'd by LSTC.
