What is Inspire Extrude Metal?

Inspire Extrude Metal offers an analysis tool for virtual testing, validation, correction and optimization of extrusion die designs.

Today's extrusion companies are forced to produce a higher mix of complex profiles in shorter product development cycles while simultaneously reducing their production costs. Inspire Extrude Metal is a simulation tool developed to analyze and validate the design of extrusion dies and process.

The HyperXtrude solver enables production engineers to analyse material flow and heat transfer inside a die during extrusion to validate die designs which in turn helps to reduce or eliminate costly and time-consuming die trials.

Inspire Extrude Metal is easy to use CAD based interface. You won't be required to complete steps such as meshing or boundary condition creation manually. All these operations are completely done in the background with no user intervention.


Minimize die design time and cost
Robust, reliable and efficient computer simulation provides insight and direction before cutting dies and set up press.
Design robust die assemblies
Accurately predict tool deflection and stresses due to extrusion loads to optimize die designs.
Visualize material flow
Understand extrusion material flow, temperatures, pressures and forces.
Minimize weld scrap
Calculates transverse weld length to minimize weld scrap.
Reduce costs
Through virtual validation, reduce die trials to save valuable time and money.
Increase productivity
Through all these above benefits, increase overall productivity.
