Cutting tool supplier Dormer Tools Ltd. (Sheffield, U.K.) cooperated with Third Wave Systems (Minneapolis, Minn.) to develop AdvantEdge, a finite element modeling (FEM) and finite element analysis (FEA) software package to simulate machining requirements. Reported benefits of the software include increased tool life, predicted shape, shortened product-design cycles and reduced costs. The FEM/FEA suite is designed to reduce the number of test tools required. This, in turn, reduces costs and speeds up the simulation process significantly.
