Altair Inspire Extrude Metal

Altair Inspire Extrude Metal (formerly Click2Extrude Metal) offers simulation-based environments designed to help extrusion companies produce profiles that involve tight tolerances, quality surface finishes and high strength properties all while reducing costs.

Product Description

Altair Inspire Extrude Metal software has been designed to be used in the earliest concept design phase to avoid costly failed prototypes. Using Altair Inspire Extrude Metal, the entire process can be radically shifted upfront during the die design stage with virtual simulation before any die is fabricated. This virtual press allows users to visualize material flow and temperature during extrusion and make changes to ensure balanced flow as well as identify and eliminate product defects which drastically reduces cost while vastly improving the quality. Only minimal training is required.
