Part of the award-winning Manufacturing Insights video seriesthis program gives an exclusive look into the innovative applications of metal forming simulation that have led to better, more reliable tooling. Metal Forming Simulation takes you inside Riviera Tooling Co. in Grand Rapids, Michigan to share real-world applications of this technology.

Increased competition and the need to control costs have demanded that die designs generate dependable tooling that produces good parts starting almost with the first hit. Metal forming simulation technology is minimizing these risks of errors in die design that cause delays in production. Learn how your company can:

  • Provide early results to your customers for changes in part design before the tooling is actually built
  • Predict production problems, such as sheet metal tearing and wrinkling
  • Predict thickness variation and strain
  • Help fabricators reduce their material costs

This program is for individuals and companies who are involved in product design, die design, stamping and forming. It will show you how simulation is applied and will lead you to the most efficient methods to create forming dies.
