Driving designs that are cognizant of the downstream manufacturing processes
Increasing manufacturing costs and stiff competition coupled with low profit margins are posing tremendous challenges to extrusion companies, especially automotive and aerospace industries. One way the leading companies stay ahead of the competition is by reducing the product development time and production costs through virtual testing. Design engineers and analysts use CAE software to analyze and validate die designs and thereby reduce/eliminate costly die trials.
This webinar explains how extrusion simulation framework provides an easy to use CAE environment to:
- Validate extrusion die designs
- Optimize process conditions
- Identify potential defects and correct them before becoming critical problems
Altair manufacturing simulation tools have received an extensive amount of development efforts to expand their simulation capabilities.
Altair Inspire Extrude is a simulation environment designed to help extrusion companies meet the ever increasing demands to produce complex profiles with tight tolerances, quality surface finishes, and high strength properties at reduced cost. Inspire Extrude is a virtual press where users can visualize material flow and temperature inside a die during extrusion and make necessary changes to ensure balanced flow, while identifying and eliminating product defects.
Step 1: Load Orientation
Step 2: Extract Bearing
Step 3: Create Billet and Material Selection
Step 4: Perform Extrusion Simulation
Step 5: Analyze Results
APEL Extrusions employs die extrusion simulation software to test die extrusion performance. This allows APEL to greatly speed up the design process and test multiple simulations per week.
