The Most Accurate and Advanced Forming Feasibility Solution for Product Engineers in CATIA

  • Identifies 90% of forming feasibility issues within minutes, to substantially reduce financial risks during product development
  • Accurate blank size calculation to reduce development time
  • Full associativity and regeneration enable a 70% productivity improvement in Engineering Efficiency to manage complex variations, as compared to non-CATIA products that suffer from process discontinuities
  • The CAA enabled CATFORM reduces Collaboration Lag (time to communicate a change and obtain feedback), and hence results in 50% less engineering changes, since the analysis is current with the geometry



  • Capitalizes on the seamless integration with native geometry in CATIA
  • Uses the most accurate forming analysis engine and ONLY one for tight radii
  • Accurately predicts feasibility of product geometry, as well as blank size, accounting for material properties, friction, and blankholder forces
  • All Forming Conditions are applied to native geometry to simplify use for non specialists
  • Simulation results include safety zones, forming zones, FLD, splitting, thinning, wrinkling, thickening, stress, strain, and optimal blank shape
  • Tailor welded parts analysis with multiple weld lines
  • Results are stored in CATAnalysis file for PLM integration eliminating multiple files
  • Export Nastran file thickness results for subsequent crash analysis
