Third Wave Systems’ AdvantEdge FEM version 5.7 is a predictive, material physics-based software solution designed to optimize metal cutting. It provides detailed information about heat flow, temperatures, stresses and forces for machining processes. According to the company, providing data that isn’t available from trial-and-error tests makes the software useful for cutting tool design as well as process analysis and optimization.
Enhancements include performance speed-ups, with a special focus on improving meshing speed; enhanced boring and tapping processes; and an elliptical-motion feature suited for modeling processes such as elliptical vibration-assisted machining.
