Trimming/Piercing/Shearing

QForm can simulate trimming, piercing and cutting operations with ease. This allows you to look at the distortion of the forging during trimming, piercing or cutting. You can also model a hot sheared billet to accurately predict the shape of the cut end. The program can separate the work piece material for these sort of simulations and both parts can be further simulated in subsequent forming operations.
