Västerås, Sweden, August 18, 2020 — With the installation of two hydroform deep draw presses from Quintus Technologies, F&B Manufacturing has elevated both the capacity and capabilities of its Phoenix, Az., facility. The presses’ flexible forming technology allows F&B design and development engineers to offer more options to serve customer production streams, while also addressing new applications and markets.
Material densification is a critical process for many manufacturing and materials processing applications. By using high-pressure techniques, materials such as metals, ceramics, and composites can be compressed to higher densities, resulting in increased mechanical properties and performance.
Quintus Technologies’ High Pressure Processing (HPP) is a natural, scientifically validated technology for food processing. HPP delivers food safety benefits, extends shelf-life, and maintains flavor, freshness, and nutrients. HPP uses ultra-high pressures instead of high temperatures and preservatives to inactivate foodborne pathogens, reduce waste, and deliver natural and nutritious.
