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.

Whitcraft Group Gears Up for Aerospace Growth with Quintus Hydroform Press Press eliminates forming operations, intermediate heat treatments, and operator dependencies, cutting manufacturing lead times by half. Thirteen months after being tapped to supply $234 million in parts and assemblies for Pratt & Whitney’s next-gen geared turbofan engines, Connecticut’s Whitcraft Group inaugurated a brand-new Quintus hydroform deep-draw press at its Eastford sheet metal facility. Operating at 11,600-psi, the press was selected for its ability to handle the formability requirements of low-weight and very tough metal alloys, in an efficient process that meets demanding cost and quality criteria and stringent delivery schedules. Whitcraft and Quintus have also entered into a cooperation agreement to promote market awareness of hydroform/Flexform technology and the fabricator’s new production capabilities.
