Data Sheet - Fluid Cell Type Presses - Type QFLProduct info sheet-metal-forming
Many companies, particularly in the aerospace market, use Flexform™ to form the majority of their sheet metal production parts. Fluid cell forming is perfectly suited to the relatively low-volume requirements of commercial, military and business aircraft. Quick cycle models can produce up to 120 parts per hour, and automated pallet systems can substantially improve efficiency in longer production runs.
1. The part formed at 350 bar came from a pre-cut blank with a width of 145mm.
2. The blank for the 800 bar test was 160mm width, with the extra material used for the shrink flange and draw dam with cutting edge
3. If the larger blank would have been used to form the 350bar part, then there would have been even more wrinkling.
