AniForm Engineering develops simulation software to predict the forming process of composite laminates. The software allows engineers to predict potential processing issues in the early product design stages, but also predicts the new material properties after forming which is relevant for structural analysis.
AniForm’s mission is to create the world’s most accurate and easy-to-use forming simulation tool for professionals in the composites manufacturing industry. This is evident from its increasing application in the aerospace and automotive industry.
AniForm also offers engineering services, which include advanced formability assessments by using the simulation software and in-house practical expertise. Additionally, AniForm offers material characterisation, and tailored trainings for companies who wish to expand their current capabilities and know-how about the composites forming process.
AniForm Engineering is a member of the TPRC. This membership results in close cooperation with TPRC’s researchers and other members of the consortium like OEMs and material suppliers, such that AniForm’s quality of expertise is under continuous and well-directed development.
“Our collaboration with TPRC researchers leads to matured, recognized, and standardized material characterisation methods for forming simulations, which is eventually a great benefit for all of our clients.” Sebastiaan Haanappel – Aniform Engineering
