AutoForm-Explorer makes it very easy for you to quickly set up simulations and evaluate the most important result variables. If you are a process planner or process engineer, AutoForm-Explorer enables you to easily define and evaluate in detail a manufacturing process intended for sheet metal part production.

With AutoForm-Explorer, you can interpret results quickly and easily. Thanks to the semi-automatic issue identification feature, you can speed up the identification of stamping issues as well as the types of issues and their locations. By using synchronized multi-design views, you can track the progression of identified issues and quickly compare them. In addition, this software enables you to easily visualize surface imperfections through the digital stoning method.
