AFDEX is a general-purpose metal forming simulator based on rigid-elasto/thermo/viscoplastic finite element method, specialized in forging and other bulk forming processes.
AFDEX (Advisor for metal Forming process and Design Expert) can predict forming loads to assist in selecting appropriate presses and also to develop and optimize the metal forming processes. For example, costly process design tryouts can be completely removed by drastically reducing the development time and cost as well as enhancing the product quality in terms of metal flow lines (grain flow, fiber flow) and increased life spans. These predictions also prolong die life and thus increased productivity will give the user and company a great return on investment.
