Advanced HyperForm Solutions

Advanced HyperForm Solutions

 This is an advanced HyperForm class for manufacturing process engineers and CAE analysts on topics beyond traditional sheet metal forming simulation such as tube bending and hydroforming, hot stamping, and composite forming. In addition, you will learn about automatic setup of optimization of forming processes to maximize part quality by iterating on blank shape, trim line, blank holder and drawbead forces through a seamless interface with HyperMorph and HyperStudy.
