ICTP 2023 in France, 24-29 September

QForm UK was presented at the 14th International Conference on the Technology of Plasticity (ICTP) in France by the stand arranged by Micas Simulations Limited and by the presentation of the paper on automated die design done by Dr Nikolay Biba.

ICTP is also called the «Olympic games of metal forming» because ICTP is a conference where the latest scientific achievements are presented, and a bridge is built between fundamental science and industrial applications. Gathering scientists and engineers from across industry, academia, and government allows sharing of the latest results and thinking about future solutions. The ICTP community can provide to answer significant challenges related to industry, society and environmental issues.

Numiform in Krakow, Poland on 26th June 2023

GMT mbH and QForm UK were able to demonstrate the interconnection of FEM and material simulation through a joint presentation at Numiform in Krakow, Poland on 26th June 2023. Practical tips were provided for selecting suitable material data and models, along with impressive application examples where real forming processes such as open die forming, die forging, and heat treatment were simulated using QForm UK.

The results demonstrated an outstanding correlation with actual material properties and process parameters. Feel free to ask us for more information!


The Forum Aluminium in Austria, July 4-6, 2023

The Forum Aluminium, organized by CAG Holding, was held for the first time in St. Pölten, Austria, from July 4-6, 2023. The topics focused totally on aluminum: materials science, materials processing, semi-finished and finished products up to application technology. But also overarching aspects such as supply chain, energy supply and emissions were dealt with in lectures and plenary discussion rounds. The approximately 250 participants and 45 speakers were recruited from the entire spectrum of the manufacturing, processing and supplying industries, including applications.

QForm UK Seminar in Milan, Italy, 22 June

QForm Direct usually attracts a lot of interest from the audience. At the seminar in Milan, on 22 June, QForm Direct was presented by Dr. Nikolay Biba, Director, Micas Simulations Ltd. During the presentation Nikolay Biba showed the principal aspects of Direct: the methods on which the construction of preforming dies is based. Using the Direct is very simple - you need to use the finish forging dies as initial data and after the automatic generation to pick the best surface for preliminary dies, but the calculation methods are based on thorough scientific research and analysis. Turning complicated into simple and user friendly - is that a miracle or a good job? :)

QForm UK Seminars in India, 13 and 15 June

We talk a lot about QForm's new features and how important it is for us to capture new trends and bring them to life. However it's much more important to listen to those who have been using QForm for a long time. At the seminars in India, held on 13 June in Bangalore and 15 June in Faridabad, we were able to listen to the experience of those who have been using QForm successfully for a long time.
