Use Cases

Altair Inspire Extrude - Metal Extrusion

Altair Inspire Extrude is an easy-to-use tool for simulating metal extrusion, polymer extrusion, and friction stir welding processes to detect potential defects early in the product development phase and improve the process efficiency. It uses Altair HyperXtrude solver to simulate these processes. In this short video we'll demonstrate a typical workflow for metal extrusion simulation.

Use Cases

Driving Design from Concept to Manufacturing with Inspire

Altair Inspire has rapidly advanced from a topology optimization tool for designers to a design environment spanning industrial design, structural simulation and optimization, motion analysis and manufacturing simulation.

Design for Extrusion

Driving designs that are cognizant of the downstream manufacturing processes Increasing manufacturing costs and stiff competition coupled with low profit margins are posing tremendous challenges to extrusion companies, especially automotive and aerospace industries. One way the leading companies stay ahead of the competition is by reducing the product development time and production costs through virtual testing. Design engineers and analysts use CAE software to analyze and validate die designs and thereby reduce/eliminate costly die trials. This webinar explains how extrusion simulation framework provides an easy to use CAE environment to: - Validate extrusion die designs - Optimize process conditions - Identify potential defects and correct them before becoming critical problems
