Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing consists of a set of processes for the creation of components, starting from their 3D CAD models, through the binding of material through layer overlapping, then proceeding on the contrary to traditional subtractive processes to remove swarf.

DEFORM allows you to design components in 3D printing that meet dimensional and structural requirements, taking account of the specificity of the selected printing technology.

DEFORM

DEFORM was created in 1980 by the American company SFTC and is dedicated to the simulation of massive metal deformation processes, such as forging, deep drawing, heading, extrusion, rolling, machining and others.

DEFORM software reduces production starting times, allowing the designer to simulate different design solutions for making die and the process, before machining the equipment and the sampling phase.

DEFORM allows designers to streamline the process saving the company money, due to the quality improvement of the components and less production rejects.

ProCAST

The QuikCAST Light, QuikCAST and ProCAST casting simulators are manufactured by ESI-Group, a French company which from the 70s to date has enjoyed enormous growth on the international market, with production plants in over 30 countries with a total of 1,300 employees. The two software programs originated in 1982. ProCAST was created in the USA by a satellite company of NASA, acquired by ESI-Group in 2003; while QuikCAST is acquired by ESI-Group in the 90s by the French Pechiney.
ESI-Group is the only company in the world to produce two simulators for foundry and steelworks.

QuikCAST Light, QuikCAST and ProCAST simulate the casting process using two different technologies:
-ProCAST: Finite Elements technology (FEM): at the state-of-the-art is absolutely the most refined and efficient.
-QuikCAST Light/QuikCAST.: Finite Differences or Control volumes technology (FDM): it is a good compromise between cost and performance.

Mori 2A: Deep drawing simulation with Deform software

Mori 2A in collaboration with ECOTRE VALENTE carried out a deep drawing simulation of a sink. This analysis allows you to thoroughly examine all the phenomena that come into action during the drawing process, virtually sample and have all the information for setting up a compliant and optimal work cycle.
Thanks to the deep drawing tests carried out in DEFORM, Mori 2A can produce its sinks on the computer and know their performance and quality: required tons, shape, defects, wrinkles, cracks and elastic return.

Die Insert Redesign with DEFORM

DEFORM was used to simulate the forming of the hex-head flange screw blank.
The stresses during forming were subsequently used to predict the effort and deflection of the equipment components. To study the matrix effectively, it is necessary to include the interaction between the matrix and the keying. The original matrix consisted of a hard metal insert and jacket.
DEFORM was used to perform a subsequent matrix stress analysis at the stage where the highest load was observed.

DEFORM: A software to combat expensive energy

Ecotre Valente from Brescia proposes DEFORM to optimize costs through process simulations
Not only reductions in shiftwork and production in the lower cost ranges, energy savings can also come from a simple one software.
A popular saying goes that "necessity sharpens the wits", meaning that when you are in critical conditions it is a process of nature find new solutions to problems, and in this case to costs.
Precisely in the face of the expensive energy Ecotre Valente, it has decided to offer its customers a new weapon represented by the software DEFORM for the simulation of energy consumption in furnaces...

Highest quality cast iron castings with ProCAST. The IRONCASTING case

THE CHALLENGE
Produce a knuckle in GJS 500-7 with a weight of 41,5 kg. The dimensions of the flask are 1100 x 900 x 700 mm.
Meet the customer’s quality standard by delivering high excellent casts, with complex geometry and tight tolerance.
Ironcastings aim to precisely solve residual stress problems predicting and optimizing microstructure, mechanical properties and porosity formation along with maximum efficiency during foundry process (metal yield maximization) leading to production cost reduction, for example reducing weight of cores.
All these goals have been reached without modify the part geometry.
