Aerospace Hydroforming Sheet metal forming

Titanium forming requirement drives high-pressure investment.

A modern high-pressure fluid cell press from Quintus Technologies will support the Airbus widebody aircraft program at Gardner Aerospace, one of Europe’s largest independent manufacturers of metallic aerospace detailed parts. The new 800 bar (11,600 psi) Flexform press will have a central position at the Gardner facility in Mazères, in southern France, in order to meet Airbus’ capacity ramp-up, chiefly driven by the new A350.
