Benefits of Flowforming with PMF

At PMF Industries, Inc., our approach to flowforming makes us unique. Our in-house capabilities start with our engineering expertise and end with your finished part. What sets PMF apart is that we have the in-house expertise to combine flowforming with a broad array of metal forming and fabricating processes. We call it FlowformingPlus™.

Flowformed Parts Cost Less

Flowforming enables the one-piece construction of assemblies and saves money in material, inventory, tooling, and assembly costs. Flowforming enables PMF to manufacture finished parts using less material, and therefore, it is cost-effective.

One piece construction also eliminates the need for non-destructive testing that is typical in welded parts.

Flowformed Parts Weigh Less

Flowforming eliminates the need for thicker materials that would otherwise be required if the part was welded. Increased mechanical properties due to cold working reduce the need for thicker cross section areas in high stress areas.

Review our case studies for real-world examples of how we helped other companies manufacture their parts more efficiently.

FlowFormingPlus: a Combination of Processes

PMF combines flowforming with an array of processes:

These processes are controlled to ISO 9001, AS:9100, and Nadcap standards.

Near Net Shape Manufacturing

The metal fabrication industry, aerospace manufacturing in particular, is always looking for more efficient ways to produce near net shape components. The ability to produce a metal part, before machining, which is as close to the finished product as possible, can significantly reduce production costs, waste material, reduce manufacturing time and eliminate the need for additional post processing.

Flowforming Expertise

Since 1961, PMF Industries has been a pioneer in the flowforming markets by continually expanding our expertise and capabilities to include a broad array of industries:

PMF continues to develop and broaden our expertise in metal forming and fabrication processes. We continuously develop proprietary manufacturing processes as a result of in-house research. PMF also collaborates with research organizations in the U.S. and Europe to develop new technologies.
