solidThinking Launches Extrusion Simulation Software, Click2Extrude® 2017

Industry leading HyperXtrude® is rebranded as solidThinking Click2Extrude in a new environment making metal and polymer extrusion simulation easy

TROY, Mich., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- solidThinking is pleased to launch the Click2Extrude suite consisting of Click2Extrude Metal and Click2Extrude Polymer as the next generation environment of the industry leading HyperXtrude suite.  Together with this new user friendly environment, the Click2Extrude suite is being licensed and distributed by a powerful network of distributors around the world with a focus an offering fast, easy, accurate and affordable solutions to manufacturing communities.

"Our new environment is designed for beginners and experts alike, to deliver an exemplary user experience by keeping all the complexities away from the users," explains Ravi Mayavaram, Director, Solver Development – Manufacturing Products. "Our focus is to improve both the quality of the extrusions and the profitability of our customers."

"A big step ahead in the model meshing for extrusion simulation," states Tommaso Pinter, Chief Technology Officer of Alumat & Almax Mori Group. "We reduce the time required by 50% and the element's quality is drastically better. Click2Extrude is also easy to use; a new engineer can become independent in a month's time."

Key updates for Click2Extrude Metal 2017 include:

  • Seam weld location and strength predictions to identify internal defects
  • Charge weld and skin tracking to identify scrap and backend defects
  • Die failure prediction

Key updates for Click2Extrude Polymer 2017 include:

  • Die swell prediction and profile shape defects
  • Co-extrusion analysis and material interface
  • Clam shelling and mandrel shift

As a result of the updated features of Click2Extrude, users are able to drastically reduce the time of the extrusion simulation process. "With Click2Extrude's newly designed interface, I have cut my modeling and preprocessing time on average from 2 hours to 10 minutes," explains Jeff Skinner, Sales & Technical Representative of Thumb Tool & Engineering."

Due to the demand for lightweighting in aerospace, automotive and other fields, the interest in aluminum extrusion for these applications is rapidly growing.  Regardless of the well-established extrusion industry, the challenges that come with complex profile shapes and new alloys are putting tremendous pressure on extruders to innovate in order to meet the stringent strength and tolerance requirements. Click2Extrude is designed to help die designers and extruders meet these demands.
