White Paper - Recent Hydroform and Flexform Development

White paper by Sture Olsson, Quintus Technologies.  In Flexform, sheet metal is formed over one rigid, shape-defining tool half by a flexible rubber diaphragm supported by hydraulic pressure. The technology has been the preferred sheet metal fabrication method within the aerospace airframe industry for decades. The automotive industry has more recently successfully adopted the technology within prototyping and low volume production.
