SIMULATION SOLUTION, A MUST IN THE MEDICAL SECTOR

In the medical industry, numerical simulation has now become an essential and strategic tool for developing medical devices: it guarantees the precision, quality and safety of parts. Transvalor solutions are particularly suitable for simulating high-precision processes for designing orthopedic implants, surgical implants or medical devices.

FOR FORGED COMPONENTS

Simulation is best for simulating high-precision forging (near-net), for designing orthopedic implants (hips, knees, shoulders, ankles, dental implants, etc.) and ancillaries that guarantee high-level physical and mechanical properties.

  • With Transvalor, you’ll have a high-performance predictive tool for simulating the entire forging range according to different processes: closed die forging, stamping, machining, heat treatment, and more.
  • You can improve the service life of your MDs (stents) by simulating their behavior under conditions of use.
  • Simulation can also be used for biomedical applications and makes it possible to anticipate mechanical stresses during bone.
  • FORGE® is a simulation software dedicated to hot, warm and cold forging processes.

COLDFORM® is a simulation software dedicated to cold forming. It is particularly suitable for the study of ranges for fasteners as well as for mechanical assemblies (riveting, clinching, etc.). Designed on the basis of FORGE® software, it benefits from exactly the same level of reliability and robustness.

FOR CASTED COMPONENTS

Simulation is a tool to improve the performance of your medical devices (prostheses and orthopedic implants) made with investment casting process. Simulating a lost wax casting process optimizes casting attacks and weighting. By taking into account the self-radiation, you will get more precise results.

  • THERCAST® is a software dedicated to foundry casting with whatever molding technology is used. It is particularly effective for studying molds with directed solidification as well as investment casting

FOR HEAT TREATMENT OF METAL PARTS

Transvalor offers its SIMHEAT® simulation solution dedicated to heat treatment for a wide range of metal alloys. For massive or large parts, the heat treatment stage is overriding to ensure the expected mechanical properties while controlling distortion phenomena.

  • SIMHEAT® makes it possible to address both heat treatments in the mass (quenching, annealing, tempering, etc.) and surface heat treatments (carburizing, nitriding, etc.).
  • SIMHEAT® simulates the heat treatment processes of metal alloys. It provides a clear vision of the observed distortions on parts, residual stresses and microstructural evolution. It will help you resolve welded joint mechanical strength problems.

FOR PLASTIC COMPONENTS

By carrying out rheological studies, numerical simulation makes it possible to control your material flows and to validate the balance of the mold. You therefore save cycle time and reduce your costs.

  • REM3D®is a numerical software for plastic injection processes and above all for chemical foaming.
