QUINTUS® High-Pressure Fluid Cell Press Takes Metal Forming to Next Level at Trestad Laser

The Swedish firm Trestad Laser AB, a subcontractor supplying sheet metal components to GKN Aerospace and Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, among others, will expand capacity with the acquisition of a state-of-the-art High-Pressure Fluid Cell Press from Quintus Technologies in Västerås, Sweden.

The investment in the Quintus Fluid Cell Press is driven by Trestad Laser’s growth strategy, a high priority for the second generation of the Andersson family, which owns and manages the company. Along with offering advanced laser cutting, welding, machining, and milling, by adding the new press Trestad Laser takes its metal forming capabilities to the next level, enabling the production of sheet metal components with complex geometries in materials that are challenging to form. The Quintus technology is particularly suitable for small series production.
