Electromagnetic Forming (EMF)
Electromagnetic forming (EMF) uses a high velocity electronic
pressure pulse to rapidly form the work piece without mechanical contact. PMF
combines electromagnetic forming and flowforming to provide a unique
combination of processes to meet manufacturing challenges.
EMF can be used to join dissimilar materials, such as
aluminum on to rubber or aluminum on to stainless steel.
Electromagnetic Forming Advantages:
No heat affected zones
Minimal joint preparation
Work piece can be pre-coated
Metal to non-metals connection using no chemicals
Minimum spring back after forming
No lubricants necessary for forming
PMF has successfully formed powder coated parts in a
variety of applications, including tube-to-tube connection, tube end shaping,
tube-to-end fittings, tube-to-plate connections, connector assemblies, ground
rings, metal-to-plastic, and dissimilar metals.
