Simufact Forming 14 software includes a newly developed GUI (graphical user interface) that simplifies the modeling and evaluation of the simulation results (preprocessing and post-processing). Another highlight of the new version is the pressure welding module, which enables the simulation of joining processes in which workpieces are connected by pressure and heat. Simufact Forming 14 provides new process types for the simulation of mechanical joining processes. Process-specific presets shorten the model setup for the joining processes of self-piercing-riveting, punch riveting and blind riveting, as well as for tensile tests.
