PAM-STAMP - Quality Results in Time

High Quality Results without Trade-offs in Cost or Time

As a consequence of all the new developments, trade-offs between simulation time and result quality can now be discarded, and realistic virtual prototyping is now possible.

The tools for die face design from ESI produce high quality die faces based on B-Spline geometry, which represent an accurate description of the contact surfaces. An automatic transfer of data to PAM-STAMP and set up of the drawing simulation minimizes work time. Iterations on part geometry, die face, binder, draw beads and any other process related parameters are completed in no time. Today, the PAM-STAMP solver always works with accurate contact in the drawing operation, no trade-offs in numerical settings and, if needed, with geometrical draw beads and any advanced material model for the yield surface and hardening. The new triple speed mode in conjunction with four or eight core parallel processing delivers simulation results in a breath-taking short response time, even on low cost computers. Simulation times are amazingly short on computers with eight cores, a solid-state drive, and a more recent processor. The speed up with an eight-core configuration and triple speed mode can be up to 20 against a single core configuration with no triple speed option. This allows constant high quality results from early feasibility to high-end formability and, consequently, the minimization of the overall engineering cost.
