Application support - Sheet Metal Forming

Application support

Flexform, combined with process expertise
and modern tool design, enables: 

  • Reductions in production time by as much as 80%
  • Reduced production steps by 50%
  • While increasing production capacity by 100%. 

Learn how to best design your tools. The key to a good sheet metal manufacturing process.

Learn how to:

  • Minimize or eliminate the need for hand correction
  • Improve part quality and stress concentration
  • Extend the life of your equipment

Properly used Flexform will:

  • Save process time and cost
  • Reduce manufacturing operations
  • Reduce the number of parts required

Quintus Technologies offers training courses and tool design consultancy services that will generate a good understanding how to achieve the best result with the Flexform process.

Training may be offered at various levels, adapted to your background and experience. The training will focus on the complete process, from determination of materials blank, process definition to the final pressed part, involving both operators and tool design engineering.

We can control the pressure more accurately on small parts in this press and eliminate even more touch labor. The press is easy to operate, user friendly, requires short time to train operators, and needs little maintenance.
Reference | Cessna Aircraft Company Four decades of high-pressure parts forming
For many parts, hand correction of incompletely-formed shapes has been completely eliminated. We have documented cost savings of 25 to 42 percent on sampled parts due to fewer required cycles and reduced manual rework.
Reference | Daher Daher cuts costs with high-pressure parts forming
The quality of the parts meets the same standards set by the original press, but setup time has been reduced remarkably: 2.5 minutes less per part. Overall labor time has been cut by 60 percent, from 9 minutes to 3.6 minutes.
