Aerospace Deep Drawing Hydroforming Sheet metal forming

Facing robust demand from the aerospace industry, the Whitcraft Group has ordered a hydroform deep draw press from Quintus Technologies. The new 11,600-psi high-pressure press will advance the production of jet engine sheet metal parts and assemblies at Whitcraft’s facility in Eastford, Conn., USA.

“We make hard-to-manufacture sheet metal aerospace components and assemblies from a broad variety of materials. The Quintus press will enable us to produce very complex, high profile parts that require a deep draw function. A reflection of our commitment to relentless, continuous operational improvement, it is expected to help achieve our ambitious production goals spurred by the current growth in the jet engine arena.”
