FTI has provided OEMs and suppliers in the automotive, aerospace, electronics, and appliance industries with innovative solutions designed to reduce development time and material costs.
Our leading edge technology enables our customers to immediately improve their balance sheet by reducing material and labour costs. FTI solutions are sold through an international network of reseller partners around the world.
In addition to its best-in-class solutions, FTI offers an extensive curriculum of Industry hands on Metal Stamping and Welding training courses that are developed and delivered by industry experts. We also offer engineering services based on our software products and our experience in the sheet metal industry. FTI professional services include training, engineering, consulting, product feasibility, formability risk assessment, and green simulation.
FormingSuite Professional is our signature product for Green Simulation. Automotive OEMs around the world and their Tier 1 suppliers are now demanding Green Simulation to confirm the viability of their quotations for tool and die work.
A Sculpting Approach to Creating and Morphing Addendum and Binder Geometry resulting in a Fast, Flexible, and Visual Approach to Die Face Design
Develop a full die face or draw development model in minutes
Create first-form draw models for accurate material cost estimates for drawn panels
Determine impact of developing flanges on punch face, die face, or binder
Optimize press axis direction for minimizing undercut or draw depth while analyzing trim conditions, draft angle and undercuts
Construct complex, developable curved binder geometry using a variety of powerful, industry driven approaches
Accurately develop trim lines for flange, hem and extrusion geometry onto die surfaces
Export surface data for use in COSTOPTIMIZER, ProcessPlanner, or FASTIncremental simulations
Step-by-step wizard guides:
Import 3D CAD data and perform Stamping Feature Recognition
Die tip (draft angle, minimize draw depth, average normal)
Positioning and bridging double attached parts
State of the art curved binder generation with morphing and tilting
Fill holes and/or notches and optionally use symmetry
Create and morph Part Extension (PE) curves
Pre-unfold of flanges onto extension, addendum, or binder
Develop a full 3D surfaced addendum
Evaluate impact of Die Face on Trim Conditions
Accurately locate trim lines for subsequent flanging operations
