Quintus Technologies Whitcraft Aerospace Group Ref. Case

Reference Case - Whitcraft Group

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.
