AutoForm Engineering GmbH is pleased to announce the availability of AutoForm^Plus R7.0.6. This patch has been developed in order to enable AutoForm^Plus Stand-alone R7 to read new license files and is a cumulated patch, i.e. it contains all changes and fixes that have been introducedwith all previous patches R7.0.1 - R7.0.5. AutoForm^Plus R7.0.6 - Release Date: February 18, 2019
AutoForm^Plus R7.0.6 is the sixth released patch version of AutoForm^Plus R7 and is available for download from February 18, 2019. Since soon license files based on the AutoForm^Plus Stand-alone R7 licensing model are not going to be available anymore and AutoForm^Plus R7.0.5 is not capable to read new license filesbased on the new licensing model introduced with the release of AutoFormForming R8, the AutoForm^Plus R7.0.6patch has been developed in order to enable AutoForm^Plus Stand-alone R7 to read those new license files.There are no changes in AutoForm-Solverplusin relation to the previous patch version which means that simulation results are identical to those of AutoForm^Plus R7.0.5! As all previous patches AutoForm^Plus R7.0.6 is a cumulated patch, i.e. it contains all changes and fixes that have been introducedwith all previous patches R7.0.1 thru R7.0.5.
About AutoForm^Plus R7. AutoFormplus R7 enables users to reach the next level of process simulation through a new set of powerful enhancements and functionalities. As a result, users benefit from higher flexibility and efficiency in process set-up and final validation for all forming processes in general and in particular for progressive dies and hot forming.
AutoFormplus R7 brings advances in process modeling for hot forming as this release allows users to take cooling channels into account. Cooling channels can now be easily modeled with 3D curves and their corresponding diameters. Different cooling channel layouts lead to different temperature distributions on the tool surfaces. Hot spots on the tool surface can be easily detected and controlled depending on the selected layout of the cooling channels.
Blank plan and bend plan: AutoFormplus R7 new functionalities enable users to efficiently plan and simulate (e.g. springback) progressive dies.
One of the major of AutoFormplus R7 is the improved planning and simulation of progressive dies. In particular, AutoFormplus R7 supports the following use cases: import of CADdesigned tool geometry for the final process validation, part import for the planning stage and part import for full process engineering, which includes die face generation and simulation. These use cases are supported by new functionalities which enable users to efficiently plan and simulate progressive dies.
In addition, AutoFormplus R7 enables users to benefit from AutoForm-Sigmaplus capabilities as all Sigma pre and post processing functionalities are now integrated within AutoForm-ProcessExplorerplus. AutoFormplus R7 software users can now take advantage of Sigma applications - Systematic Process Improvement and Process Robustness. As a result, users can ensure a highly efficient engineering process and robust part production while meeting desired quality requirements.
