Quintus High Pressure Application Centers
Your engineers are probably looking for solutions, or answers to their technical challenges online. They probably read a lot of white papers on the subject, and watch hours of interesting videos. But they will always want to do some hands-on research. This is where Quintus High Pressure Application Centers can play a significant role.
It’s hard to have the perfect research and experimental set-up at your own facility. As a Quintus Technologies customer you have access to our Application Centers led by technology experts.
The Perfect Set-Up
After the success with our Application Center in Columbus, OH, in the US, we are proud to announce the inauguration of the new Quintus High Pressure Application Center in Västerås, Sweden. The center is equipped for high pressure demonstrations, tool and process development, customer application training and for new process and equipment development purpose. The machines and software are state of the art. Your project is guaranteed confidentiality. Without interruption to production you can:
- Evaluate new production processes and materials
- Optimize parameters to get the correct material properties
- Develop and implement new solutions
- Run test cycles in our presses
- Design new tools to optimize production
How It Works
After a feasibility study, we present a proposal for optimized tool layout, application methods and machining strategies. In a process validation phase, we simulate and verify the process and provide training. We give you detailed documentation. Finally, we implement the turnkey solution – complete and ready to use – at your facility, we get our hands dirty together, setting things up so that we see the process in operation. You reap the benefits right from the start.
