Pryer Technology Group (PTG), manufacturer of Triform sheet hydroforming presses, has announced a strategic partnership with ESI Group, a provider of virtual prototyping systems for the manufacturing industry. Under the agreement, Triform presses now are available with ESI Group's PAM-STAMP® 2G forming simulation software.
The software, designed for sheet metal forming, allows users to simulate the forming process before tooling is developed. It covers the entire tooling process, from quotation and die design through formability and tryout validation.
The software also allows the design engineer, material provider, die designer, and press operator to communicate and make decisions online, from the early stages of design to production. The web-enabled technology allows images, annotation, text, and 3-D models to be shared.
