TriboForm R3.1 Released for Sheet Metal Forming Simulation

TriboForm Engineering has unveiled its latest software version TriboForm 3.1. This new software version offers new enhancements and allows for realistic consideration of tribological effects. TriboForm’s expertise in the field of tribology provides a new dimension in sheet metal forming simulation.

Expertise in tribology has shown that accuracy in sheet metal forming simulation is increased when the constant coefficient of friction, which is commonly used in this type of simulation, is replaced with realistic and highly accurate friction and lubrication data. The latest industrial trends and needs have clearly indicated that the integration of the friction and lubrication data into the sheet metal forming simulation significantly contributes to the higher simulation accuracy. In continuous efforts to advance its software products, TriboForm Engineering now offers an important functionality. With TriboForm R3.1, users are able to import and use their own experimental friction data as well as sheet surface and tool surface measurement data. In addition, the direction dependent friction can now be taken into account. This is important since the selected sliding direction over the sheet surface has direct influence on frictional behavior. With TriboForm 3.1, users can efficiently and accurately carry out the simulation, visualization and evaluation of friction and lubrication conditions.
