TriboForm software allows you to quickly simulate the effects of tool coatings, lubricants, material surface characteristics or new sheet materials on friction and ultimately on product quality. Through a more realistic consideration of tribological effects, a new level of simulation accuracy can be achieved. TriboForm’s products complement AutoForm’s product portfolio.

TriboForm Analyzer is a stand-alone software which enables you to efficiently simulate, visualize and evaluate friction and lubrication conditions. It includes the TriboForm Library, which contains generic tribology data sets for the most commonly used sheet materials, tooling material and lubricants in the sheet metal forming industry. You can export results for direct use in the AutoForm-FormingSolver using the TriboForm Plug-In.


  • Accurate representation of complex tribological phenomena
  • Simulation, visualization and evaluation of friction and lubrication conditions
  • Savings on expensive tool modifications during tryout or production
