The DEFORM ® system is an engineering software that enables designers to analyze metal forming, heat treatment, machining and mechanical joining processes on the computer rather than the shop floor using trial and error. Process simulation using DEFORM has been instrumental in cost, quality and delivery improvements at leading companies for two decades. Today’s competitive pressures require companies to take advantage of every tool at their disposal. DEFORM has proven itself to be extremely effective in a wide range of research and industrial applications. Scientific Forming Technologies Corporation (SFTC) develops and supports the DEFORM System. SFTC is available for consulting, training, contract simulation and software development on a project basis.
