Enhanced Metalforming Software Tackles Blank NestingAugust 1, 2011
Forming Technologies Inc. (FTI), Burlington, Ontario, Canada, has released FormingSuite v 9.0, designed to allow metalforming and costing engineers, designers and estimators to significantly shorten time to market by enabling quick engineering and costing decision making. Enhancements to FormingSuite v 9.0, say company representatives, represent a significant advancement in the software’s simulation capabilities, coupled with continuous improvements in the software’s core strengths—cost reduction, blank development, stamping accuracy and springback prediction.
• Precise springback simulation with NAS and STL file export for CAD compensation;
• Five-fold speed enhancement for finite increment technology MultiStage solver;
