COPRA Virtual Conference

It’s time to talk roll forming! In this online conference series specialists from various disciplines present and explain latest technical developments for your business success.

Our interdisciplinary team will look at roll forming from multiple perspectives: We share best practices in everyday roll form design, demonstrate new COPRA software features but also discuss topics of digital transformation in our industry.

Our specialists are developing tailor-made solutions for your entrepreneurial success.

Long gone are the days of paper drawings: With the first version of our COPRA RF (Roll Form) design software we used to pioneer in our industry. Today our COPRA products have become indispensable in the roll forming world.

COPRA RF and COPRA FEA RF digitized the design process and thus revolutionized the exchange of data across the organization. Now, manufacturers can move rapidly from design department to shop floor and back again as changes come through from the engineering team. Working with COPRA software also allows easy transfer of know-how within a team and transfer of data from COPRA to CNC machines for example. This workflow boosts productivity and allows projects to move much faster.

With increased digitalization today, classic CAD models are gradually being replaced by so-called digital twins. Combined with effective simulation tools, like COPRA FEA RF, they become a powerful tool to virtually validate a forming process, put new mills into operation or to fine-tune the production control for a new set of forming tools.

In the course of this conference series, we invite you on a journey through our COPRA Universe that beckons extraordinary possibilities for our industry: Starting from proven CAE software programs for the design and simulation of the roll forming process up to newest technologies like Internet of Things, sensors or smart devices, digital twins, data mining or BlockChain technology.

Register now for our upcoming events and become part of the digital transformation.
