Tube bending and hydroforming stamping simulation package

Tube bending and hydroforming stamping simulation package

ESI Group's PAM-TUBE 2G is a new suite of stamping-simulation software packages that are tailor-made for the tube bending and hydro-forming processes. PAM-TUBE 2G supports all stages, from design to product manufacturing. It is an intuitive software package, where the user is guided through the different steps of the process. PAM-TUBE 2G offers accurate tube-bending simulation with realistic tool modelling and behaviour for better forming simulation results, as well as offering coupling capabilities for more accurate product performance assessment. "ESI Group is engaging in a new phase in its long-term partnership related to advanced tube manufacturing technology," explains Martin Skrikerud, product manager at ESI Group. "PAM-TUBE 2G development has benefited from academic and industrial know-how. Thanks to a partnership with the University of Siegen in Germany, and close collaboration with DaimlerChrysler, Audi, Schuler Hydro Forming, bu+Engineering GmbH, hde Solutions, Ebersp├Ącher and ThyssenKrupp Budd, we've brought a high level of confidence to tube-bending and hydro-forming simulation in a robust product solution for industrial manufacturing."
