Quintus Technologies introduces the Flexcell™ concept, a solution dedicated to efficient low volume sheet metal fabrication. The system takes advantage of the high pressure Flexform technology, using only one rigid tool half, the other tool-half being a flexible rubber diaphragm, backed up by hydraulic oil pressure.
The Flexcell concept minimizes the time for tooling changes and takes the time for new tool set-ups from hours to seconds. The Flexcell™ concept substantially increases productivity, allowing fabrication of small production batches, when a wide variety of part shapes are required.
The Flexcell™ concept also makes the handling of heavy tools easier, while taking away the manual feeding of parts, making this process safer and more efficient.
The Flexcell™ press creates very low tooling cost and short lead times make Flexform™ ideal for low volume production of high quality sheet metal parts.
Quintus has supplied more than 150 Flexform™ systems to companies such as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Cessna, Embraer, British Aerospace, Aerospatial and China Aviation.
For decades, Quintus has supplied Flexform™ solutions to major automotive manufacturers worldwide, including Ford, Daimler-Benz, Volvo, BMW, Rover, GAZ and Saab.
The Flexform™ technology provides solutions for appliance and white goods manufacturers, and for a wide variety of low volume custom parts fabricators.
