Machining Simulation

Control distortion and optimize machining processes

DEFORM is used to simulate and optimize milling, drilling, turning, tapping and other machining processes while predicting product distortion due to material removal. Powerful meshing and re-meshing capabilities enable small features such as swarf and tool coatings to be modelled.

Using DEFORM’s unique large deformation calculation and meshing capabilities, process and tooling engineers and researchers can accurately model a wide range of machining operations.

Applications

DEFORM includes process wizards and templates to assist the set up of machining simulations such as turning, boring, grooving, milling and drilling.
