DEFORM for Machining Simulation

DEFORM is used to simulate and optimize milling, drilling, turning, tapping and other machining processes while predicting product distortion due to material removal. Powerful meshing and re-meshing capabilities enable small features such as swarf and tool coatings to be modelled.

Control Distortion and Optimize Machining Processes

Using DEFORM's unique large deformation calculation and meshing capabilities, process and tooling engineers and researchers can accurately model a wide range of machining operations.

Typical Machining Processes

  • Turning

  • Boring

  • Grooving

  • Milling

  • Drilling

  • Reaming


DEFORM includes process wizards and templates to assist the set up of machining simulations such as turning, boring, grooving, milling and drilling.
