Webinar - The Quintus Flexform™ process for low volume production

Learn how to produce sheet metal parts with complex shapes in small volumes. In the webinar we will discuss how the high pressure Flexform technology can provide value to the vehicle sheet metal fabrication industry.

Shaping general low-volume manufacturing with Flexform™

The Flexform technology provides solutions for appliance and white goods manufacturers, and
for a wide variety of low-volume custom parts fabricators.

Flexform is a modern sheet metal forming method for cost effective low-volume production. Quintus Technologies has supplied high-pressure rubber diaphragm presses to the world’s major manufacturers
for decades. Flexform is used by manufacturing companies for general low-volume sheet metal forming to achieve low-cost, high quality parts with short lead times.

Flexform is ideal for:

  • Prototype and development components, from small shallow parts to large deep parts, in all alloys.
  • Low-volume production items, from small shallow parts to large deep parts, including trimming,
    in all alloys.

Listen to one of our Expert movies and learn why hydroforming is the ideal process for low volume sheet metal forming.

Shaping the low volume sheet metal forming industry

In Flexform, sheet metal is formed over one rigid, shape-defining tool half by a flexible rubber diaphragm supported by high hydraulic pressure. The use of a single rigid tool half results in short lead times, low tool costs, fast try-out and easy tool modification after component design changes.

Reference Case - Ford Motor Company

The Ford New Model Programs Development Center in Dearborn have successfully operated a 93,000 ton Quintus Flexform press for more than two decades. The Flexform process is used for low volume sheet metal fabrication and for prototype development, where complex shapes and high part quality is required.
