Process type choice based on AFS technology – extended application range
With Simufact.welding 5, Simufact has laid the foundations for the introduction of AFS technology (application function sets), which has already proven its worth in Simufact.forming. Simufact.welding users can now make an initial choice of welding process types and application scenarios.
Depending on the process type chosen, different, practical defaults are set, e.g. for time stepping and other numerical parameters, and the corresponding tools. Simufact’s AFS-technology aims at making the software even more user-friendly, so that the use of its applications becomes intuitive – an approach that quickly show its benefits in daily use.
Simufact has further extended the application range of the software: with the new version, users can simulate additional welding process types, process steps, and application scenarios, such as arc welding, beam welding, an analysis of the potential influence of different clamping and cooling concepts and the new process resistance spot welding.
