A single software suite for all metal forming needs
PARIS, Dec. 3 -- ESI Group, pioneer and world-leading supplier of digital simulation software for prototyping and manufacturing processes, announced today the release of its Sheet Metal Forming Simulation Suite Version 2009, including PAM-STAMP 2G and PAM-TUBE 2G. Dedicated to all engineers involved in the Sheet Metal Forming process, the main objective of the simulation suite is to significantly shorten time to market by allowing users to make fast decisions from an early stage of the design right through to production in a continuous improvement process and within a collaborative environment.
PAM-STAMP 2G, ESI's complete and integrated streamlined stamping solution, covers the entire tooling process and provides a trade-oriented application for Automotive, Aerospace, and general Sheet Metal Forming applications.
While PAM-STAMP 2G Version 2009 keeps on improving the accuracy of the simulation with precise springback results and capabilities extension, this latest release includes several new process simulations, such as:
In addition, as well as offering a number of optimization tools including Blank outline optimization, Trim line optimization and Die compensation which drastically reduce cost and time, PAM-STAMP 2G's performance has been improved thanks to the set-up simplification through automatic tools, multi-layer material dedicated set-up and new post-process functionalities.
PAM-TUBE 2G Version 2009 also hosts a variety of enhancements based on users' feedback from the last version, among which:
The Sheet Metal Forming Simulation Suite's latest release thereby offers an accurate and realistic modeling tool for tube forming simulation, which includes an intuitive pre-processing module leading the user through process design in order to ensure better forming results.
"The most significant state-of-the-art physical parameters identified by PSA's hemming specialists were integrated into PAM-STAMP 2G," said Patrice Auger, R&D manager for assembly processes at PSA-Peugeot-Citroën. "Validated through real-life industrial cases, this new tool has quickly become essential to guarantee successful product definition and process reliability."
"The enhancements within PAM-STAMP 2G Version 2009 represent a significant advancement in the software's modeling capabilities. The usage of simulation for predicting new industrial processes is also enlarged thanks to the set up focusing on real industrial data," said Caroline Borot, sheet metal forming product manager at ESI Group. "Those benefits, coupled with continuous improvements in our core strengths which are stamping accuracy and springback prediction, deliver great value to ESI's customers".
