Reference Case - Airbus Defence and Space

To secure high equipment availability and improve productivity, Airbus Defence and Space decided to upgrade a Flexform Fluid Cell Press in one of its production plants. The press was originally designed and commissioned by Quintus in 2002. The upgrade was performed during a planned maintenance stop, and the press was back in operation after a record-short time thanks to great teamwork and meticulous planning

High Pressure Warm Forming System

Shaping the Aerospace Titanium Industry   The Flexform High Pressure Warm Forming (HPWF) process is a new technology, potentially replacing or complementing traditional hot forming methods, such as super plastic forming (SPF), hot stamping and hot gas forming. The HPWF process operates at a temperature below 270°C (520°F), and at a forming pressure of up to 1,400 bar. The unique combination of high pressure and relatively low temperature provides a cost efficient forming process for alloys like titanium and magnesium.

White Paper - High Pressure Warm Forming Reshapes the Economics of Ti-6Al-4V Parts

Costly and time-consuming conventional forming methods have limited the use of Ti-6Al-4V to highly stressed components in narrowly specialized applications. High Pressure Warm Forming (HPWF), an innovative new process developed by Quintus Technologies, breaks the cost barrier that has, until now, prevented more widespread adoption of this exceptional material.

Flexform™ Deep Draw Presses

The QUINTUS® Deep Draw Presses are the most versatile of the Quintus Flexform presses in terms of forming capabilities. Not only can they form the same kind of parts as Flexform fluid cell presses, but also complex and deep parts which require a deep drawing function. This is performed with the rigid tool half – a movable punch and blank holder – and by controlling the forming pressure as a function of the draw depth. The circular Flexform unit contains the flexible rubber diaphragm.

White Paper - Trends in Hot Isostatic Pressing in Aerospace Applications

The demanding environment in aerospace applications, especially jet engines, has long required the use of Hot Isostatic pressing (HIP) to ensure consistent, defect-free material characteristics to ensure long term high integrity operations. As the conflicting requirements of low weight, and high integrity continue to set higher bars of performance, a larger, and more diverse set of aircraft and engine parts are seeing HIP requirements as part of their processing. It is extremely important to understand that modern HIP systems can now offer the capability to combine a conventional HIP cycle with other heat treat processes and offer productivity and process efficiency improvements.
