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.
