What is Altair Inspire Extrude?

Altair Inspire Extrude Metal and Inspire Extrude Polymer simulate the metal or plastic extrusion process. With Inspire Extrude, testing of complex profiles needing tight tolerances, quality surface finishes, and high strength properties can be done virtually before needing to cut any steel to make a die. Using a virtual die, you can set up an extrusion process quickly and easily.

Make Better Design Decisions

Make better design decisions by detecting potential defects before a die is built. Even the most complex profiles can be validated for production with Inspire Extrude Metal. Using the geometry creation and simplification tools, CAD can be quickly de-featured and modified inside the tool, ensuring potential profile distortion, damage from deflection, backend contamination, charge weld defects, bad seam weld, bad grain size, overheating profile quality, and poor surface quality issues are corrected early in development.
