Altair Engineering, a global provider of technology and services empowering client innovation and decision-making, announced the last release of Altair HyperForm Solista and Altair HyperBlank, two standalone technologies that allow sheet-metal part manufacturers to easily simulate forming operations to cut production costs and material scrap while improving product quality. Leveraging AltairвЂ™s powerful finite-element solver engine, RADIOSS, HyperForm Solista and HyperBlank offer efficient, cost-effective and accurate solutions to simulate the entire manufacturing process for sheet-metal forming, tube bending and hydroforming.
Altair HyperForm Solista: Sheet-Metal Forming Essentials
- Predict Forming Problems and Reduce Cost вЂ“ The most accurate incremental sheet-metal forming solver on the market, Altair RADIOSS, is seamlessly integrated into HyperForm SolistaвЂ™s process-driven user interface. This solver allows users to quickly predict wrinkles and splits prior to cutting steel, avoiding the unnecessary costs associated with die machining and press downtime.
- Streamlined, Process-Oriented GUI Increases Productivity вЂ“ HyperForm SolistaвЂ™s extensive built-in knowledge of the manufacturing domain efficiently captures the stamping process. A comprehensive collection of tailored, process-oriented automations for virtually every stamping application further boosts user efficiency. Together with an intuitive, easy-to-understand user interface with navigation and terminology that are consistent with the production floor, these products do not require prior finite-element analysis training or knowledge.
- Complete Simulation Solution for Stamping вЂ“ The HyperForm Solista stamping platform efficiently manages the entire stamping simulation process from feasibility analysis through final process validation and optimization. It also boasts a broad and robust functionality suite, including concept die face design, springback prediction and compensation, and a powerful results-visualization framework to meet and exceed usersвЂ™ high-performance requirements.
