Reference Case - Ford Motor Company

The Ford New Model Programs Development Center in Dearborn have successfully operated a 93,000 ton Quintus Flexform press for more than two decades. The Flexform process is used for low volume sheet metal fabrication and for prototype development, where complex shapes and high part quality is required. Quick time to market is a key feature in all Flexform activities, as well as the low tool cost to produce parts. Typically, Flexform parts within Ford range from body-in-white components to skin panels like roofs and doors. The process is also ideally suited for a large variety of blank material and thicknesses.

White Paper - Forming Simulation Correlation with the Flexform Hydroform Technology

Forming Simulation Correlation with the Flexform Hydroform Technology  Flexform is a high pressure hydroforming technique using a flexible rubber diaphragm between the pressure medium and the formed sheet. The technique allows sheet metal to be formed in different thicknesses in one and the same tool, as the blank will take the shape of the single rigid tool half. Flexform pressing is used for low volume production and prototyping, where the low tool cost and short lead time is of essence.
