Dynaform - a complete die-system evaluation tool for tool & die businesses

Dynaform is a LS-DYNA based simulation solution empowering tool & die businesses to reduce Autoform licensing costs and run more accurate simulations.

Tool and Die Simulation Software

Dynaform allows tool and die companies to reduce licensing costs while increasing the accuracy of their part simulations.

Reduced Cost

More Affordable

Dynaform costs less than other die system simulation solutions


More Accurate

Dynaform is more accurate, reducing costly production errors

Metal Forming

Dynaform encompasses the entire die system process in one simple interface. Simulating every detail during the design stage, Dynaform ensures the highest quality formed part and best manufacturing process. The system guides the engineer through cost estimation, quoting, die evaluation and formability.

Dynaform 7

Dynaform makes it possible to completely bypass soft tooling, reduce overall tryout time, lower costs, increase productivity and provide complete confidence in die system design. Makes possible evaluation alternative designs and materials.

Reduced Cost

Prevent Costly Errors

Go beyond just ID’ing issues. Actually improve performance & quality by reducing wrinkling, thinning & tearing.


Generate Quotes Quickly

Accurately estimate blank size and blank nesting for maximum material utilization, minimum scrap, and piece costs.


Rapid Reliable Results

Die Evaluation includes INCSolver, allowing engineers to generate reliable formability results with a short response time.

Product Mass Reduction

Uncover Flaws & Optimize Product Designs

Promote rapid development & validation of single-station and progressive die designs based on accurate LS-DYNA® results.

Forming simulation 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.


Blank Size Engineering

Accurately estimate blank size. Minimize scrap & piece costs.
