Reference Case - Premium AEROTEC

The Flexform Fluid Cell Press at Premium AEROTEC’s plant in Bremen, Germany, had been in operation for more than 30 years when the company decided to upgrade the control system of the press to ensure reliable uptime and access to spare parts. This would also increase productivity and enhance both alarm handling and data logging greatly.

White Paper - 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.

Modern Quintus Fluid Cell Deep Draw Press

Data Sheet - 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.
