Digital modelling of manufacturing processes.

IVP specialises in the digital modelling of manufacturing processes. In particular, this includes virtual validation of entire production chains. IVP software tools have been among the market leaders in forming technology simulations for over 20 years now. For the simulation, IVP uses its own finite element program, developed especially for modelling cutting processes: the FEM FineFormTM program.

Turning theory into practice.

The next level of virtual production.

The finite element program is based on the ALE method, specially adapted to cutting processes, which boasts significant advantages in calculation accuracy and computing speed thanks to the  forming-appropriate modelling of the calculation networks.

  • Globally recognised institute in ‘special-purpose’ FEM packages.
  • Precise failure models developed to predict forming limits.
  • Expertise in ‘smart’ production systems.
  • Development of innovative forming systems.

Forming Technology and Foundry Engineering.

Fineblanking as part of shear cutting has been a key pillar of research at UTG for decades. As well as pure cutting parts, UTG is now conducting research with a Feintool press on the manufacturability of complex components with a high proportion of clean cuts. This collaboration is allowing technical limits to be regularly extended: whether in terms of lightweight construction or gear production, harnessing the inherent stresses induced by production technology.

Experiments and simulations.

Methodological expertise for your project.

The combination of experiments and simulations forms the basis for the long-term expansion of the application possibilities in fineblanking.

  • High methodological expertise and experience in planning and implementing research projects.
  • An array of flexible fineblanking tools.
  • Wide-ranging measurement and analysis options for tools and components
