AutoForm Software

AutoForm offers software solutions for the die-making and sheet metal forming industries. The use of AutoForm software improves reliability in planning, reduces the number of die tryouts and tryout time, and results in higher quality part and tool designs that can be produced with maximum confidence. In addition, press downtime and reject rates in production are substantially reduced.

Based on practical, industrial know-how and sheet metal forming expertise, AutoForm’s solutions form a complete, integrated system with highly specialized functions to analyze, review and optimize every phase of the process chain.

AutoForm provides solutions all along the sheet metal forming process chain. They range from stand-alone modules for small and mid-size companies to complete, integrated multi-module systems for large companies.
The AutoForm Feasibility Solution is used to ensure the manufacturability of stamped parts from early on in the part design cycle, in order to reduce development time and costs. Applied from early on in the part design cycle, it has been proven to deliver significant benefits in terms of robust part manufacturability and performance, as well as reduced manufacturing costs. This solution is attractive for the concept, styling, product design and production planning departments because:

Early formability checks eliminate costly and late changes of part design

Rapid evaluation of multiple concepts leads to an optimized process layout

Provides absolutely the fastest and most reliable solution for feasibility evaluations

Provides a highly intuitive workflow for part and process designers

Improves results of other CAE analyses

The main features of the AutoForm Feasibility Solution include:

Direct import and rich-editing of CAD geometry

Designed to work with unfinished / partial CAD data

Initial part-based formability check and blank estimation

Rapid process layout and creation of die face geometry

Mapping of simulation results to other CAE tools
