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.
