Benefits

 

Product design

HyperForm’s One-step®, HyperBlank® helps product designers to quickly and reliably check their design’s for manufacturing feasibility with minimal process inputs. The inverse solver, fastest and most accurate solver in the market place allows to validate several design alternatives, gauges, materials in seconds to finalize the design early in the product development cycle, minimizing downstream formability challenges and associated costs. Product features can be optimized for ease of manufacturing and performance by coupling feasibility analysis with Optimization to quickly arrive at optimal design. Product performance analysis (Structural, Thermal, NVH , Crash, Drop test, Fatigue) accuracy can be improved by mapping results from forming feasibility.

 

Costing

HyperForm Nesting ®, HyperBlank ® allows design and costing engineers to quickly flatten the designed part and nest them for a progressive die, transfer die forming, for maximum material utilization within manufacturing constraints. Product designs can be further improved from nesting layouts for best material utilization, performance and minimal cost.

 

Die Engineering

HyperForm Die Module ® enables tool makers, engineers, designers to identify stamping features of the product, establish the manufacturing process and rapidly create and modify die face designs for each of the steps in manufacturing the part from flat sheet of metallic or composite material. The die faces are transformed to tools automatically in HyperForm Incremental ®or HyperForm Solsita® and entire manufacturing process is virtually simulated using accurate incremental solver RADIOSS® to check the designs for potential defects. Parametric and NURBS modelling of die surface allows to quickly modify the die surfaces and repeat this cycle to arrive at feasible design. Using Altair’s HyperStudy®, optimization can be enabled with RADIOSS® to optimize the design that avoids defects, minimize die tryouts and press down time resulting in quality parts conforming requirements. Hyperform® provides unique opportunity for tool makers to optimize the die structure using Altair’s Optistruct® for maximum tooling life with minimum material to save cost.

 

Tryout and Production

Altair’s stochastic analysis software HyperStudy® coupled with incremental simulation allows tool makers to perform what if studies, six sigma analysis, DOE analysis on the established design to identify its sensitivities to different process parameters. This is of immense help to die tryout engineers as the cause for the potential defects that could occur are known ahead and dies could be proven in tryouts for production. Production engineers can monitor and control the identified sensitive process parameters within acceptable limits to avoid any defects and down time in press lines resulting in big cost savings.
