SYSWELD 2018.0 2018年7月16日

From Weld Quality to Body Manufacturing & Distortion Engineering, ESI SYSWELD offers a unique computer-aided assessment of material characteristics, residual stresses and distortions by taking into account all the multi-physics that is involved in Welding, Assembly and Heat Treatment manufacturing processes:

  • for process feasibility and material characteristic control
  • for process security and product performance improvement
  • for car body manufacturing and distortion control

ESI SYSWELD 2018.0 includes:

  • Welding Simulation: Visual-Weld 14.0 and SYSWELD Solvers 2018.0
  • Heat Treatment Simulation: Visual-HT 14.0 and SYSWELD Solvers 2018.0
  • Assembly Simulation: Visual-Assembly 14.0 and Virtual Assembly Solver (CSM) 2018.0, for distortion control in:
    •  Body manufacturing for auto industry
    • Thick plate and large welded assemblies for shipbuilding
    • Welding Sequence Optimization with help of PAM-OPT 2018.0

* Weld Planner is migrated within Visual Assembly and will not be released anymore.


Highlights of the release:

Visual Weld and HT:

Fast, intuitive and easy-to-use welding and heat treatment simulation tool which covers all activities of the welding & heat treatment engineer. Some key new functionalities are:  

  • Sub-assembly management (mapping on deformed geometry, mapping with initialization of physical properties, mapping with geometrical transformation…)
  • Clamping condition based on the current deformed geometry (not the initial one)
  • Update in contact parameters to improve convergence performance
  •  Heat treatment – machining chaining solution for part distortion

Visual Assembly:

New generation, easy-to-use assembly simulation for distortion control which:

  • Covers complete car body manufacturing chain starting from the stamped part to pre-positioning to holding/clamping and finally welding/joining. Inheriting details of the “as manufactured” components from the press shop, visual assembly simulates step by step the entire assembly and welding process chain in the body shop.
  • Covers large welded assemblies with thick plates and multi-pass welds, which are common in the shipbuilding industry. Aimed at shop floor production, the software can deliver the optimization of a weld sequence plan thanks to a streamlined and intuitive interface, offering dedicated automatic meshing functionalities and easy model set-up.
