FASTFORM forming simulation - click for full size imageFASTFORM provides product and die designers with fast formability analysis for evaluation and validation of stamped components. Try-out simulations are based on either the component geometry for early feasibility or on the full tool, taking blank holder force, drawbeads, and pressure pads into account for improved reliability. It accurately determines if a component can be stamped consistently with minimum cost, while fulfilling all product performance requirements.

FASTFORM evaluates & validates the formability of product designs & process engineering proposals

• Predicts product and process feasibility
• Eliminates risk by identifying formability issues up-front
• Quickly identifies splitting, wrinkling, and thinning
• Reduces process development time by accurately sizing blanks
• FASTFORM evaluates and validates the formability


• Develops accurate blank shapes for improved material utilization
• Introduces feasibility criteria during early product development
• Results provide guidelines for material selection, blank size, binder & pressure pad force, and drawbead layout
• Simplifies results interpretation by providing graphical display of safety zones, forming zones, splitting, wrinkling, and thinning
• Customizable materials database provides flexibility required to simulate any material
• HTML-based report generation summarizes the product development process
• Fast, intuitive interface makes the software extremely user-friendly
