Simulating processes and production methods

Simufact supports user-friendly simulation solutions for the metal manufacturing process including additive manufacturing, metal forming, mechanical and thermal joining operations. Interface and setup supports advanced simulation for non FEA users.

Simufact software solutions cover a large number of manufacturing processes in the metal working industry. 

Simufact Virtual Manufacturing

Product Portfolio - Overview

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

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

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.

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.
