Electromagnetic Forming

Electromagnetic Forming

Current methods of tube-to-tube, tube-to-end fitting or tube-to-plate construction and assembly have significant drawbacks, such as annealing and warping with welding. Electromagnetic Forming is unique in its solution to these problems. Electromagnetic Forming uses an electronic pressure pulse to rapidly form the piece.

Understanding Flowforming

Understanding Flowforming

For hollow metal components that require precision, economy, and flexibility, flowforming has some unique benefits that will help you accomplish your design objectives. An advanced form of spinning, flowforming has been used for years in the military and aerospace industries to produce precise, thin-walled, seamless rocket motor and missile casings, nose cones, rocket housings, and, more recently large cartridge cases.

However, the process is being used for many other commercial applications such as for components in equipment for aerospace, transportation, filtration, food and electronics industries, where there is a requirement for hollow symmetrical shapes with relatively close tolerance control, variable wall thickness and profile, improved tensile strength, and superior inside surface finishes.
