Designed for sheet metal cost estimators,FTI Ann design engineers, tooling designers, and advanced planning engineers in the automotive, aerospace, consumer product and electronics industries, FormingSuite 2019 delivers new customer-driven features for costing/estimating parts, developing method plans, and formability simulation.
FormingSuite's ability to provide extensive valuable information on many topics including formability, material cost, tooling cost, springback, etc. has led to the introduction of a new, comprehensive reporting system that automatically generates a single report summarizing an entire project in either Excel or PowerPoint format.
Demand for utilizing FTI expertise in quoting and estimating tooling for sheet metal components has resulted in powerful enhancements and functionalities to COSTOPTIMIZER Professional (COP). COP's ProcessPlanner solution brings the tooling and manufacturing method planning activities to the lead position in the industry by addressing critical customer challenges. To provide the flexibility needed by the global automotive marketplace, ProcessPlanner now supports regional settings to customize both die sizing and costing. Advancements such as improved die load for flanging operations, die estimation parameters for tandem process and user defined shut height settings for each die in tandem lineup are amongst a multitude of new features. FormingSuite 2019 also improves stamping feature recognition, process generation, process validation, simplifies process editing and produces better-quality reports.
FormingSuite 2019 brings advances in material cost modeling as this release introduces users to a new, easier and more flexible method for creating and editing variable addendum on blank shapes by interactively morphing (dragging) curves. Focus has been on improving support for DFM and KPR studies with customizable results ranges for numerical results (major, minor, thickness strains, safety margin) to address organizational standards for formability as well as improved reporting which include springback results. Cost Optimization layout editing adds support for cropping two different parts during optimization. A powerful new Progressive Nesting Web Simulation solver has also been introduced to provide engineers fast and accurate simulation to understand the impact of web design on the cost and method plan.
FASTIncremental users can now import scanned data to replace tooling meshes and now have more precise controls for timing of tools and cams. Materials can be defined with full anisotropic (plastic strain ratio) accounting for the rolling direction of the sheet material with r0 (parallel), r45 (diagonal) and r90 (transverse) as determined through material testing. Large organizations can now use FASTIncremental with a networked LS-DYNA solver.
