DEFORM Training

October 15 @ 8:00 am - October 17 @ 4:30 pm EDT

SFTC offers training for the DEFORM system periodically in their Columbus office.

Days 1-3: 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM (Eastern Time)

The in-person training offering is limited to staff from U.S. and Canadian companies with an active DEFORM license. Those from other countries should contact their local DEFORM distributor for training assistance.

Training is appropriate for attendees with no DEFORM experience, or for those who would like to sharpen their skills or refresh their knowledge. The class uses standard training examples to introduce the basic functionality of DEFORM. Each class also has time set aside for attendees to work on their own part simulations. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own geometry and process data.

For more information on the class, or to register, please contact Caryl Gatton at (614) 451-8330 ext. 100 or via email.

The deadline for registration and payment is two weeks prior to the first class.
