The Metal Forming Team at Quintus Meets New and Existing Customers Globally
Visitors at our Fabtech booth were able to find out how Quintus' unique Flexform™ hydroforming technology can reduce production cost and cut lead times.
Strong Presence at Fabtech and Euroblech
We are ecstatic with the interest our visitors at both Fabtech in Atlanta, GA and at Euroblech in Hannover, Germany showed in our unique hydroforming technology and our new High Pressure Warm Forming process.
Quintus also presented on the topic of “New Development within the Hydroform Technology” at the Alternate Forming Processes Educational program. Click here to receive a copy of the full paper.
The capability to form and trim parts in one and the same forming operation, using the unique and simple Flexform one-piece die technology was demonstrated at our Open House.
Quintus Open House Event in Sweden
At the event, invited customers experienced a tour of the workshop and the recently inaugurated application center. Quintus demonstrated the latest high pressure developments, including the new High Pressure Warm Forming process.
The workshop tour was combined with seminar sessions offering great opportunities to discuss specific metal fabrications issues with colleagues from all around the world. Visitors from all over the globe, including European countries, China, Japan and the USA made the event, truly a global information sharing session.
Quintus 85,000 ton press-force fluid cell press type QFC 1.6x4-1000 during final testing before dispatch to the customer. Available forming area of 1.6 x 4 meter (63 x157.5 inch) at a forming pressure of 1,000 bar (14,500 psi).
Quintus Technologies Fluid Cell Press Bolsters Mecahers Aeronautica Capacity for New Aeronautical Programs Components
Titanium forming requirement drives Portuguese company’s investment in high pressure press. Mecahers Aeronautica, one of Europe’s major independent manufacturers of detailed metallic aerospace parts, has invested in a state-of-the-art high pressure fluid cell press from Quintus Technologies. The press will support its role in the Airbus widebody aircraft program.
Installed at the Mecahers facility in Setúbal, Portugal, outside of Lisbon, the new 800 bar (11,600 psi) Flexform press will be instrumental in the fabrication of components to meet Airbus’ capacity ramp-up.

New Quintus Flexcell™ Concept
Quintus Technologies introduces the Flexcell concept, a solution dedicated to efficient low volume sheet metal fabrication. The system takes advantage of the high pressure Flexform technology, using only one rigid tool half, the other tool-half being a flexible rubber diaphragm, backed up by hydraulic oil pressure.
The Flexcell concept minimizes the time for tooling changes and takes the time for new tool set-ups from hours to seconds. The Flexcell concept substantially increases productivity, allowing fabrication of small production batches, when a wide variety of part shapes are required. The Flexcell Concept makes the handling of heavy tools easier. It also takes away the manual feeding of parts, making this process safer and more efficient.
