Meet Dynaform 6.2: All New Tube Bending and Hydroforming Die Face Design and Simulation
For years, engineers and tool designers have struggled to find comprehensive, accurate, and easy-to-use software for tube forming simulations. But that all changes with Dynaform 6.2.
How Dynaform 6.2 Can Help You
It’s difficult to save time and cut costs while also performing high-quality bending, pre-forming, hydroforming, trimming, and annealing tasks. That’s where Dynaform 6.2 excels.
Simulate Multi-stage Tube Forming
Tube bending, pre-forming, and hydroforming definition – all in one module.
Accurately Predict Tube Forming Failures
Predict and avoid wrinkles, cracks, spring back, feasibility of hydroforming, and more.
Automatically Calculate Center Lines
Find center lines instantly by tube product geometry.
Enhanced Tube Bending Solvers
Calculate tube bending with both one-step and incremental solvers.
What's new in Dynaform 6.2
Dynaform 6.2 is the sixth-generation die system simulation solution. It provides a user-friendly and intuitive interface with a streamlined process design. The stamping simulation process is fully based on the actual stamping process, which requires less CAE knowledge, and minimum geometry and mesh operations.
Complete multi-stage tube forming simulation
Dynaform’s tube forming simulation now supports multi-stage tube forming, including tube bending, tube pre-forming, tube hydroforming, trimming, and annealing. The simulations can accurately predict failures like wrinkles, cracks, spring back, and feasibility of hydroforming. No matter what process you are using or which stage you are focusing on, you can easily find the function you are looking for.
Full-process Tube Forming
Key tube forming processes include features like bending, preforming, hydroforming, trimming, and annealing.
Robust automated tool creation based on product geometry.
Bending table enhancements
Dynaform’s bending table now supports editing, inserting, and deleting operations. Users can now also import the bending table manually or automatically generate it from the center line. Our bending table generation algorithm improvements now serve to save users significant amounts of time generating tables.
Simulate tube feeding, rotating, and bending simultaneously.
Enjoy seamless data exchanges with bending machines.
Hydroforming in Dynaform 6.2 now supports comprehensive die face design including tube end extensions, centerline auto calculating, quick generating of die separating lines, mesh model separation based on separating lines, and more. Instead of switching to CAD software to create the tools, users can finish almost all major FEA model preparation works in Dynaform.
Finish motion definition, mesh editing, & more – all in Dynaform.
Generate both upper and lower tools quickly and easily.
