DYNAFORM 5.9.2.1 RELEASED WITH ADD-ONS
Software Release Offers a New Module and Add-ons for Trim Line Development, 
Rotary Tube Bending, Hot Forming and Die Structure Cooling
 
Troy, MI—Engineering Technology Associates, Inc. (ETA) announces the release of DYNAFORM Version 5.9.2.1. DYNAFORM is a simulation software solution, which analyzes the entire die system and allows organizations to bypass soft tooling, reducing tryout time, lowering costs, and improving cycle times and productivity. This latest release offers many new and improved features, as well as a new module, for Die Evaluation (D-Eval).  It also includes some useful new add-ons for Trim Line Development, Rotary Tube Bending Design & Analysis, Hot Forming and Die Structure Cooling.
 
D-Eval, DYNAFORM’s new module, supports binder generation and drawbead layout applications. The D-Eval module also includes the quick solving INCSolver (up to 4 cores) for die design evaluation of formability at no additional charge.
 
A major new feature in the new release is the Trim Line Development Add-on.  It offers multiple stage trim line development simulation capabilities.  It uses an iterative approach for simulating trimming during metal stamping, which ensures that final trim line result matches the target line.
 
Another functional new feature in DYNAFORM Version 5.9.2.1 is the Rotary Tube Bending Add-on.  This allows the user to calculate the tube (product) centerline, generate the bending process automatically, edit, review and analyze the bending process through simulation.  The user can also preview the tools movement through the bending process via the simulation.
 
Hot Forming Simulations are also now possible with DYNAFORM.  Hot forming occurs when hot sheet metal is contacted by a hot die and a hot punch and held in the forming process for a specified period. Using this add-on, the hot forming process can be simulated, while the user can accurately predict the result under different blank and tool temperatures.
 
The Die Structure Cooling Add-on, implemented in a special version of ETA’s PreSys software environment, uses tetra mesh generation plus a transient thermal solver showing the temperature history during stamping cycles.
