Altair’s SolidThinking recently introduced the Click2Extrude 2017, a new kind of software suite that has features of both Click2Extrude Polymer and Click2Extrude Material. Many of you might not be well-versed with the product and its usage. If you are new to it, know that you must have used it or interacted with it in recent days. Software like Click2Extrude 2017 are used to help polymers and metal extrusion companies to simulate the interaction between materials with dies that can give a final shape to a given substance.
Previously, more rigid designs lacked subtle curves that are in high demand in aerospace and automotive industries, the polymer and metal extrusion process doesn’t need high quality simulation. But the case is completely different now. The Click2Entrude suite ensures that dies and materials work together in a seamless manner scientifically and simply. Ravi Mayavaram from solidThinking explains, “Our new environment is designed for beginners and experts alike, to deliver an exemplary user experience by keeping all the complexities away from the users. Our focus is to improve both the quality of the extrusions and the profitability of our customers.”
Both Click2Extrude Polymer and Click2Extrude Metal come with a new row of features. The Metal version has the capability to calculate where internal flaws can occur in skin tracking, weldments, for recognizing back-end defects and scraps. The new version of this software has ability to predict profile shape defects, mandrel shifts, clamshelling, and co-extrusion analysis. The Click2Extrude Polymer is capable of featuring litany of several other powerpacked enhancements that turn extrusion simulation more detailed and simple to use. A Click2Extruder user and Alumat & Almax Mori Group CTO says, “Click2Extrude 2017 is a big step ahead in the model meshing for extrusion simulation. We reduce the time required by 50 percent and the element’s quality is drastically better. Click2Extrude is also easy to use; a new engineer can become independent in a month’s time.” As the demand for such software is increasing with every passing day in the aerodynamics and lightweighting segments, you can stay assured that extrusion simulation software will become more significant for manufacturers.
