Quintus Technologies Innovations in Aerospace Fluid Cell Tooling White Paper

White Paper - Innovations in Fluid Cell Tooling

Innovations in fluid cell tooling and process efficiency dramatically lower the costs of aerospace sheet metal parts  Since the 1960s, aerospace manufacturers, including Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, Cessna, TAI, Embraer and others, have successfully used fluid cell (or “bladder”) presses to precisely form a wide range of aluminium and other sheet metal components. Today, however, strategic shifts among the major airframe OEMs mean that a growing number of these parts are being out sourced to tier 2 and 3 suppliers. With the advent of new intermediate size presses, these subcontractors are beginning to invest in fluid cell technology to cut production costs and improve their competitive position.
