Weld Quality and Residual Stress Engineering - Process and Product Safety

With simulation-based weld quality and residual stress engineering, you can:

Check if the weld will perform as well as the parent material and will not affect the ability of the parent material to perform as stated in its material specification

Choose the best possible material

Determine the best possible micro-structure after welding

Evaluate material exposure

Control residual stresses

Minimize tensile stresses to avoid buckling

Distortion Engineering - Product and Process Development

With simulation-based distortion engineering, you can:

  • Reduce the amount of prototyping and distortion repair work
  • Develop a weld plan
  • Identify distortion directions and magnitude
  • Keep distortion within given tolerances
  • Minimize gap fit up forces
  • Minimize deviation from fixture forces
  • Minimize the amount of weld consumables needed
  • Minimize clamp tooling
