CATFORM provides CATIA V5 users with a fast formability analysis for evaluation and validation of stamped components. Formability analysis is based on component geometry and accounts for material properties, friction, and blank holder force. CATFORM determines if a component can be stamped consistently with minimum cost, while fulfilling all product performance requirements and is fully integrated into Dassault Systemes PLM environment.
substantially reduces process development time by accurately sizing blanks
Accurately predicts feasibility of product geometry, as well as blank size, accounting for material properties, friction, and blankholder forces
Results are stored in CATAnalysis file for PLM integration eliminating multiple files
