Flowforming Case Study 1: Aerospace PMF Redesign

PMF Contribution

  • Design and engineering assistance at an early stage of the process resulted in a more accurate, economical and efficient part than would have been possible using other methods.
  • Flowforming allows the part to be made from a one-piece form with minimal additional operations required.
