MFAC was founded in 1995 by Dr. Chris Galbraith. We provide engineering software, technical support, and consulting services for mechanical engineering industries.
MFAC is the Canadian distributor for LS-DYNA, a general purpose finite element code. We also sell DYNAFORM, which is a bundled software package incorporating LS-DYNA for conducting sheet forming simulations.
Chris Galbraith worked at Alcan International Ltd. prior to starting up the Metal Forming Analysis Corporation. He has pioneered a number of enhancements for modeling sheet forming which have been included in LS-DYNA. He has presented and lectured extensively on sheet metal forming simulations using LS-DYNA. His work with Alcan on automotive sheet metal stamping simulations garnered two COMPUTERWORLD-SMITHSONIAN AWARD Nominations in the manufacturing category and was selected as one of five finalists in this category in 1995 and 1996.
Dr. Galbraith is a graduate of Mechanical Engineering from Queen's University at Kingston who is licensed to provide consulting services in Mechanical Engineering. With 25+ years of experience in mechanical engineering, he has provided numerous companies with technical expertise to help them better manage their engineering practices and processes.
