Founded in 1989, Forming Technologies (FTI®) is the world’s leading provider of software solutions for the design, feasibility, and costing of sheet metal components.

Cost Engineering

Define target costs early in the design process by performing an accurate cost analysis to improve material utilization, reduce vehicle weight and tooling development time using simulation technology


Design Engineering

Perform quick feasibility studies of sheet metal parts at the design stage to improve design for manufacturability (DFM) quality to eliminate re-work and reduce the number of engineering changes after part design release

Manufacturing Engineering

Perform virtual tryouts of stamping and assembly processes to identify issues before building the tooling to reduce costs and time-to-market, while improving product quality. These solutions can be applied to all types of metal forming, joining, welding and metal-based additive manufacturing.
