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.

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.
