Simufact Welding is used for modelling and optimizing a wide range of fusion and pressure welding processes, taking into account weld sequence and clamping. Processes such as arc welding, laser beam welding, electron beam welding, brazing as well as resistance spot welding can be modelled in Simufact Welding. Additionally, Simufact Welding can be used to model the heat treatment, different variants for cooling and unclamping as well as the mechanical load on welded structures.
Simufact Forming is an established software solution for the simulation of metal forming manufacturing processes. The software covers all essential areas of forming technology: forging, cold forming, sheet metal forming, all major incremental processes and mechanical joining. Simufact Forming provides support in microstructure simulation, calculation of die load and conventional and inductive heat treatment. Furthermore, thermo-mechanical joining methods of pressure welding are also supported.
Simufact Additive is a scalable software solution for the simulation of metal-based additive manufacturing processes which focuses on powder bed melting (L-PBF) and metal binder jetting (MBJ) processes. Simufact Additive is designed to predict and compensate for distortion, residual stress and temperature distribution, heat treatment, cutting, hot isostatic pressing (HIP) as well as machining processes virtually before the part is manufactured by the 3D metal printer in reality.
