DANTE Solutions, Inc.

DANTE Solutions is an engineering consulting and software company, specializing in metallurgical process engineering and thermal/stress analyses of metal parts and components. Started in 1982 by Dr. B. Lynn Ferguson as Deformation Control Technology, the company has evolved into the premier heat treatment modeling company using its flagship simulation software, DANTE.

DANTE Solutions 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 to our software licensees.

About DANTE Heat Treatment Simulation Software

DANTE® is the State-of-the-Art in heat treatment simulation software, promoting improved component and process design in heat treatment.

OUR Software

DANTE heat treatment simulation software is a coupled thermal, carbon/nitrogen 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.

Over the past few years, I have been using Dante software to model various heat treat processes for automotive combustion engine components. The software has provided valuable insight to the complicated physics that govern induction hardening and carburizing processes. Dante has also been a useful tool for optimizing heat treat recipes, much more quickly than possible with physical testing. Furthermore, I can rely on the Dante team to provide fast, capable assistance to work through any technical issues that arise. I have also worked with Dante on a couple of significant software development projects, and they have always demonstrated a high level of professionalism and efficiency. I look forward to continuing to use Dante for current and future applications.

DANTE® Heat Treat Simulation Software has been a great boon to Cummins. Since we started using their software we have gone through several projects that have increased our understanding of heat treatment and some of which that have saved us production costs. One example was enabling us to gain the leverage needed to make a material and process change on a legacy product that is now saving us at least 25% on material costs. The team at DANTE Solutions has always been very accommodating and is very quick to give assistance and feedback whenever troubles arise, even when the troubles are caused by other parts of the simulation and not DANTE itself. I look forward to working with the DANTE team in the coming years as we expand our list of engineers who use this software.
