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 welding
  • 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.
