Shaping the Aerospace Jet Engine Industry with Flexform™
Quintus Technologies has supplied high-pressure hydroform presses to the world’s major aircraft and jet engine manufacturers for decades, such as Airbus, Boeing, Rolls Royce, Pratt & Whitney and their supply chain.
The availability of high forming pressures greatly increases the range of sheet metal parts that can be formed economically. The final shape can be achieved in fewer steps and with less manual correction. Also, heavy gauge and difficult materials can be formed into complex shapes with close tolerances. Trimming can be included in the press cycle.
The hydroform technology is ideal for:
✓ Structural items, from small shallow to large deep parts, in aluminum alloys, stainless steel and titanium.
✓ Engine components, including deep drawn parts, in high-strength, heat-resistant materials.
✓ Expansion forming of tubes, ducts and other irregular shaped parts.
Learn how to efficiently produce complex jet engine parts in sheet metal
Learn how to eliminate production cost with high pressure hydroforming. We will review three examples of jet engine parts, where the combination of forming simulation, innovative tooling design and the high pressure forming process will be discussed.
For this discussion we have chosen a Diffuser, a Tube part and a Heat shield to illustrate the process benefits.
Whitcraft Group Gears Up for Aerospace Growth with Quintus Hydroform Press
“We make hard-to-manufacture sheet metal aerospace components and assemblies from a broad variety of materials. The Quintus press enable us to produce very complex, high profile parts that require a deep draw function. A reflection of our commitment to relentless, continuous operational improvement, it is expected to help achieve our ambitious production goals spurred by the current growth in the jet engine arena. ”
