AutoFormplus R10 – The Next Level of Process Simulation. AutoForm Engineering GmbH, the leading supplier of software solutions for the sheet metal forming industry, has unveiled its latest software version AutoFormplus R10. This release brings tangible benefits and enables users to reach the next level of process simulation.
AutoFormplus R10 enables users to reach the next level of process simulation through a new set of powerful enhancements and functionalities. As a result, users benefit from higher flexibility and efficiency in process set-up and final validation for all forming processes in general and in particular for progressive dies and hot forming.
Cooling channels – tool design, tool temperature and sheet temperature.
Blank plan and bend plan: AutoForm<sup class=plus>plus</sup> R10 new functionalities enable users to efficiently plan and simulate (e.g. springback) progressive dies.

AutoFormplus R10 brings advances in process modeling for hot forming as this release allows users to take cooling channels into account. Cooling channels can now be easily modeled with 3D curves and their corresponding diameters. Different cooling channel layouts lead to different temperature distributions on the tool surfaces. Hot spots on the tool surface can be easily detected and controlled depending on the selected layout of the cooling channels.
One of the major highlights of AutoFormplus R10 is the improved planning and simulation of progressive dies. In particular, AutoFormplus R7 supports the following use cases: import of CAD-designed tool geometry for the final process validation, part import for the planning stage and part import for full process engineering, which includes die face generation and simulation. These use cases are supported by new functionalities which enable users to efficiently plan and simulate progressive dies.
In addition, AutoFormplus R10 enables users to benefit from AutoForm-Sigmaplus capabilities as all Sigma pre and post processing functionalities are now integrated within AutoForm-ProcessExplorerplus. AutoFormplus R7 software users can now take advantage of Sigma applications – Systematic Process Improvement and Process Robustness. As a result, users can ensure a highly efficient engineering process and robust part production while meeting desired.
