Elio Falco, CEO at FARA Stampi S.r.l., Italy

“AutoForm solutions applied to progressive die design has allowed us to evolve from handcrafted processes to an industrialised method.”

“Truth be told, thanks to AutoForm, we expanded the variety of parts we produce today, and thus extended our market.”

“We now produce parts that we could never have produced without AutoForm simulation in short amounts of time.”

Steve Hackett, Engineering/Technical Consultant at Whiston Engineering, UK

“We have been using AutoForm simulation software successfully for many years. .... Time is the enemy of the toolmaker – there is never enough of it. Priorities for us are speed, accuracy, ease of use, cost savings and overall efficiency.”

“We are really happy with AutoForm software – we use its DieDesigner, Trim and Sigma modules. We are also looking at using its hemming software in the future.”

Giovanni Costa, project leader for the A/SP Hemming of Thin Gauge AHSS team and corporate hemming specialist at FCA US LLC, USA

“With AutoForm-HemPlanner, the hemming operation could be planed efficiently, and typical hemming defects that occur during the hemming operation could be successfully addressed.”

“The results achieved by the hemming team were exceptional, and AutoForm software aligned with our actual results. It proved to be a valuable tool for early product development.”

Graeme Haggon, Die Maintenance Supervisor at Nissan Sunderland Plant, UK

“AutoForm has huge potential for us in the sheet metal forming environment. The AutoForm-Sigma software allows us to simulate actual production conditions.”

“Working in the press shop, validation of the AutoForm software is clear as we see actual conditions on the panels that are highlighted by AutoForm simulation. Basically, it provides a more systematic approach, rather than ‘it’s a black art’ mentality.”

Brian Mason, Simulation and Tool Processing Manager with Walker Tool & Die, Inc., Grand Rapids, MI, USA

“We’ve used AutoForm since 2011, and are especially happy with the features and computation speeds. We can perform six to 10 iterations in a day on some parts where, before, we would get one.”

“We dropped the project into AutoForm and modified the process to develop the tip and addendums to better attack springback. We saw a big benefit in using simulation for this springback challenge.”
