Addendum Creation

Create addendum swiftly and as intricately desired, using different addenda profile features.

Plus all the efficiency and profit driving modules that Dynaform has delivered for 30 years

Process setup and simulation for tube-bending and forming processes. Based on product geometry, TBF can automatically (or manually) setup tube-bending and hydroforming processes, generating tooling and validation processes.

Automatic Bending Process

Check the feasibility of product shape designs within a few minutes.

Tube Bending & Forming - ETA

Bending Table Tools

The bending table supports editing, inserting, and deleting and can simulate tub feeding, rotating, and bending simultaneously.

Data icon

Geometry & Automation Tools

Define tube product geometry, edit the mesh of tube products, and identify tube State/End sides automatically.

Full-process Tube Forming

Center Line Calculation

Center lines can be calculated automatically or edited manually.

Dynaform’s forming simulation software makes it possible to uncover design flaws early in the process. Using the various modules, engineers can more-fully evaluate alternative–and unconventional–designs. Doing so helps ensure higher-quality outcomes.

Product Development

Springback

Accurately predict springback during the forming process.

Arrows in

Springback compensation

Determine how to adjust the forming tooling or part design to compensate for springback effects.

Prevent Costly Errors - ETA

Drawbead optimization

Optimize the design placement of drawbeads in the forming process.

ETA Forming Silulation

Determine a blank’s optimal shape and size before producing any physical parts. Accurately predict the deformation, thinning, and stretching that will occur during the forming process to determine the initial size and shape of the blank. Predict the final shape and contour of a part after trimming, ensuring that final part meets your specifications and quality standards.
