The DEFORM® system is the most widely used metal forming process simulation software worldwide! To serve our broad user base, SFTC offers a range of systems and modules to ensure that your DEFORM System meets your simulation requirements.
DEFORM is used for forging, cold heading, machining, heat treatment, rolling, mechanical joining and a wide range of other applications. DEFORM offers flexible packaging to provide an optimum solution to your modeling requirements. Common system components are utilized throughout. Application-specific GUIs (graphical user interface) simplify data input and postprocessing.
DEFORM-3D is a flexible and open system capable of analyzing a wide range of deformation, thermal and microstructural processes requiring three-dimensional modeling.
DEFORM-2D is a flexible and open system capable of analyzing a wide range of deformation, thermal and microstructural processes when a two-dimensional (axisymmetric or plane strain) solution is appropriate.
FORMING EXPRESS (3D) is an easy-to-use three-dimensional modeling system capable of analyzing forging, cold heading, extrusion, drawing, upsetting and other common processes.
FORMING EXPRESS (2D) is an easy-to-use two-dimensional system capable of analyzing forging, cold heading, extrusion, drawing and upsetting for axisymmetric (round) and plane strain cases.
DEFORM-HT can be licensed as a stand-alone program to simulate heat treatment processes and microstructure development. Alternatively, the Microstructure Module can be added to a DEFORM-2D or DEFORM-3D license to enable microstructure development during deformation. Simulation queue’s, floating licenses, cluster licensing and a range of application-specific preprocessors are available for rolling, machining and cogging.
