Topics of the meeting

On the 22nd of September
We like to introduce Simufact, a new company in the MSC family since beginning of this year. Simufact is a leading FEA based simulation solution for metal forming, welding and heat treatment.
With the ability to simulate the entire manufacturing process chain, starting from blanking, shearing of wires or billets, to multi-stage forming, punching, trimming, and heat treatment followed
by joining operations, welding and structural analysis. 
You will be updated wiht "What´s New" presentation on Adams, Finite Element Analysis, MSC Apex, and we introduce to you MSC One. Meeting starts at 9:00 and ends at 17:00.
