White Paper - Formability of Titanium Ti-6Al-4V sheets at moderate temperature combined with high-pressure

Costly and time-consuming high-temperature forming methods have limited the use of Ti-6Al-4V to highly stressed components in narrowly specialized and small volume applications, ideal for applications where less than ~1000 parts per year is required, and in vide varieties. A new forming technology, High Pressure Warm Forming process (HPWF) combines high pressure with a moderately elevated temperature for a more rapid and cost-effective forming of aerospace-grade titanium parts.

White Paper - High Pressure Warm Forming System

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.
