DEFORM - The PREMIER system for metal processing simulation.
The DEFORM® system is the premier process simulation software for finite-element analysis (FEA) of bulk metal forming, heat treatment, machining and mechanical joining applications. It provides a “virtual” trial environment that allows manufacturing processes to be modeled on a computer. Simulations efficiently and accurately predict process behavior, thus reducing the need for costly and time-consuming shop floor trials. Hundreds of companies, ranging from large multinational corporations to small family-owned businesses, rely on DEFORM throughout their design and development activities.
Scientific Forming Technologies Corp. (SFTC) was founded three decades ago with a mission to provide design and analysis technology to the metal forming industry. The company develops DEFORM, the most widely used bulk metal forming process simulation system in the world. SFTC delivers world-class technical support for DEFORM and also collaborates on numerous research projects. SFTC is a leader in the development of next-generation process simulation technologies serving the aerospace, automotive, defense, energy, industrial and medical markets.
