Roll forming simulation software
simulation of roll forming process: Roll forming is a well-known process used to manufacture long sheet metal products with constant cross-section. to avoid forming defects and to reduce the process development efforts, finite element analysis can be used to predict strain distributions and sheet geometry during and after the process.
In roll forming quality of products is highly dependent on the process parameters. some of the Effective parameters are bending angle increment, strip thickness, flange width of section, web width of the section, friction in the roll and strip contact, speed of roll, and distance between the roll stands. It is so important to consider these parameters for roll forming process design.
There are several CAD programs available on the market for the design of roll-formed products, forming rolls, and roll pass sequences. such as:
