Deform is a finite element-based system that can predict chip form, cutting forces, temperatures, tool wear, and other parameters based on cutting tool geometry, feed, speed, depth of cut, and coolant.
The Deform material library contains more than 50 materials, including common grades of steel, titanium, aluminum, and superalloys. Release 6.1 includes several new materials. On the numerical side, the system features a new mesh generator for improved run times, increased robustness, and accuracy.
