Public Profile

DANTE Solutions Inc., formerly operating as Deformation Control Technology (DCT), develops heat treatment simulation software. Specializing in metallurgical process engineering and thermal/stress analyses of metal parts and components, the company has evolved into the premier thermal process modeling company. The firm maintains an active program of alloy characterization, process modeling consulting, continued innovation in application to new processes (i.e. vacuum carburizing, high pressure gas quenching), and technical support for its software licensees. DANTE heat treatment simulation software is a coupled thermal, carbon diffusion, solid mechanics finite element based program for heat treatment simulation of steel parts. Engineers can use DANTE to predict the residual stress state in a given part after heat treatment, the evolution and final volume fractions of metallurgical phases, hardness, and part distortion. The DANTE analysis tool couples a multiphase material constitutive model directly with diffusive and martensitic phase transformation kinetics models. For use by metallurgists, process engineers, heat treaters and designers, the heat treatment simulation capabilities of DANTE include heating, carburization, immersion quenching, gas quenching, spray quenching, press or fixtured quenching, and tempering. Additionally, the system is interfaced to popular pre and post processors.
