Software Analyzes Tube Bending

Sunday, June 1, 2008
Forming Technologies Inc. (FTI), Oakville, Ontario, Canada, released its newest Catia module, CATTube CAA V5. CATTube is a tube-bending analysis tool for the aerospace, automotive, nuclear and process industries. It incorporates FTI’s CHI solver to produce accurate thickness distribution, and accurate tube length for costing and setup, and will automatically determine hot- or cold-forming process requirements.

CATTube reportedly will significantly reduce the number of iterations between design and manufacturing, reduce the number of half-pipe pressings, and reduce procurement and manufacturing costs, say company officials.
