CLOSER TO REAL MANUFACTURING
Digital Design Solutions is a leading Provider of QForm Extrusion Simulation Analysis and Optimization Software and Services across India.
QForm Extrusion simulation is a unique program that integrates all the features needed for the analysis and optimization of complex extrusion processes. It is successfully used in the simulation profiles of solid, semi-hollow and hollow, as well as for extrusion through multiple arrays of holes (chambers and espinas). The extruded material can be aluminum alloys, copper alloys, steel, and other metals and alloy.
During the simulation, the user can see the shape of the extruded profile and all process parameters such as velocity distribution along the cross section of the profile , temperatures, Stress, grain flow etc. Using this information, the user can identify the cause of the flow imbalance and make the necessary corrections to achieve the best performance. Special editor for bearing design allows users to quickly change bearing surface along the entire section to balance material velocity and get good tip shape.
Mechanical simulation of material flow.
Parallel geometry algorithms.
Automatic mesh generation, state of the art.
Extrusion simulation uses Lagrange-Euler approach with especially optimized finite element mesh in the simulation domain.
Friction law in the bearing zone provides transition from sticking to sliding depending on the process parameters.
The program is validated by laboratory and industrial experiments showing good accuracy of the results.
Some cases require consideration of die deflection that may influence the material flow and special feature has been developed to simulate such problems.
Coupled thermal simulation provides temperature distribution in the die that may influence the material flow.
Special program QForm Extrusion Die Designer can quickly prepare solid model of die set. Program uses 2D drawing of extrusion profile as input and uses automated wizard to quickly model all parts of extrusion die set.
The use of simulation in parallel design optimization saves time and resources, giving good results without the need for practical / real tests.
