Some Simulation Xpress Advice Please

We have designed a bending jig to bend some aluminum flat bars.  We do know that it takes 8 ton to bend one bar and this jig holds five bars.  They get bent into U shape.  I have attached the file and two screenshots.  We are concerned that the gold color roller might flex out a bit.   It does not appear we have the full simulation package.  Am I able to do any stress analysis with Simulation Xpress?  I posted a question about this same assembly a few weeks ago.   At that point we were just wanting to simulate movement.  Now we would like to do a stress analysis.   Any input will be appreciated.  This is kind of a new area with SolidWorks with us.  thanks
