Revolutionising metal manufacturing with user-friendly simulation solutions

Simufact offers a range of powerful and user-friendly simulation tools designed specifically for practitioners in the metal manufacturing industri. The product range includes tools for additive manufacturing, metal forming, welding, mechanical and thermal joining operations. Simufact offers a user-interface and setup that supports advanced simulation for users without requiring expert knowledge.

"Simufact Welding is a powerful tool that gives us the opportunity of studying the process wholistically prior to the experiments and rectify the possible sources of problems in advance, from tool path to post-DED processing. The software provides possibility for documenting the entire process and performing the cost analysis in addition to the deep scientific analyses."

Dr. Amin S. Azar, Head of Additive Manufacturing, Effee-Induction AS

Simufact Virtual Manufacturing

Product Portfolio - Overview

Below you can get a deeper insight in three of the most common processes: Forming, Welding, and Additive Manufacturing.

Simufact Forming

Simufact Forming covers the complete spectrum of forming technologies and guarantees a realistic portrayal of the processes with full 3D functionality and 3D representation of all the tools and parts. Accurate simulations are possible by capturing the key aspects that affect the processes, which include:

  • The kinematics of the machine
  • Nonlinear material behavior of the workpiece
  • Friction and contact between tools and forming parts
  • Self-contact of forming parts to predict folds
  • Thermodynamics of the process

Multiple modules are available to address the processes of interest to you.

Simufact Welding

Simufact Welding helps simulate complex welding processes that may involve multiple welding sequences and predicts distortions of the components, while considering phase transformations occurring during the process. With Simufact Welding, users gain insight into the properties of the weld seam, and welding defects such as hot cracks, helping them to address problems prior to putting the process into use.

By coupling Simufact Welding with Simufact Forming, users can simulate a combination of various process chains with upstream and downstream welding processes. Easy data transfer allows not only consideration of the forming history, but also strength analysis of simulated welded seams.

Simufact Machining

Do you want to know the distortion when you are machining 3D printed, forged or welded parts?

Already in Simufact 2021, we introduced the ability to simulate machining processes. Today, with the new version of Simufact 2022, our users can simulate multiple machined parts at the same time. This enables machining simulation of assemblies. In addition, you can import geometries that represent fixations for machining processes.

With these two improvements, the productivity in defining machining processes is notably increased. And with even more control in setting up machining processes you will benefit from more realistic simulation models.

Simufact Additive

Simufact Additive is a powerful simulation environment for "right the first time" optimization of powder bed additive manufacturing processes (SLS, SLM, LBM, DMLS , EBM)

Simufact Additive predicts the distortion and residual stresses in the part and guides the production engineer in how to compensate to ensure a quality part the first time. Process control variables may be selected to optimize the 3-D printing process to reduce time and waste.

Simufact Additive can be used to explore the process space, including examining the influence of:

  • Material selection

  • Power vs. speed

  • Powder characteristics

  • Build path / hatching pattern

  • Support / Internal structures

Project LightHinge+

Hear how LightHinge+ used Simufact Additive to simulate lightweight components.

Build for non FE experts

Easy to use and simple to analyse. Also for you who are not an expert in Finite Element.

Simulate complex processes with a simple interface

Complex forming processes with large material deformations are handled thru a simple interface.


Dedicated to simulation of manufacturing process

While most simulation tools has been developed to test products during the design face, Simufact is developed with the aim of testing the manufacturing process to cut down failures and optimize costs.
