This guest contribution is written by Renganathan Sekar, M.Sc., a research engineer at MFRC, the developers of the intelligent metal forming simulation software AFDEX which is available through the Altair Partner Alliance.
Recent advances in traditional metal forming processes have given rise to tremendous opportunities of expansion. Simulation-assisted development of hot stamping and cold forging processes have facilitated reduced material wastage. This is due to the ability to form much complicated, near-net shape geometries with enhanced material properties. Read More
