  • Triform Fluid Cell Sheet Hydroforming 16-5BD – Piper Aircraft

    “We might change tools 15 times or more per shift. With the Triform, tool changes literally take seconds. Conversely, changing tools on our larger hydroforming presses can take 30 minutes or more.” - James Priest, Lead Press Operator Read More

  • Triform Deep Draw Cuts Tooling Costs – Electronics Manufacturer

    Thanks to the soft rubber bladder in the Triform press, this manufacturer was able to eliminate secondary polishing completely, while slashing tooling costs by 70% and reducing waste. Read More

  • Bulldozer 3-press Package – Railroad Manufacturer

    "This 3-press package is another great example of how our Sales and Engineering teams worked with the customer to develop a solution tailored to their specific needs and production goals.” - Jeffrey Debus, Beckwood Press Company Read More

  • Sheet Hydroforming Eliminates Annealing and Speeds Production – Aerosud

    “With the success we have had with the hydroforming press on the A320 program, Aerosud is now working on the design for the Airbus A350 Slat Track Cans using the press.” - Dr. Leon Labuschagne, Director of Technology for Aerosud Holdings Read More

  • Multi-Ram Press Consolidates Manufacturing Processes – Osmundson Manufacturing

    “The size and configuration of the press require less steps and less motion from the operators. The machine’s small size means an operator doesn't have to reach far to run both sides of the press. It’s been a nice upswing for us. The ability to form and fixture-quench the part at the same time has eliminated three steps from our production cycle.” -Doug Bruce, President and Owner, Osmundson Manufacturing Co. Read More

  • Lighting Manufacturer Cuts Production Costs by More Than 70%

    Thanks to their new Triform Deep Draw Hydroforming press, our customer no longer needs to stock the expensive molds that had originally been required to cast their products. Their post tops also now have a flawless finish as they come out of the Triform press, due to the flexible rubber diaphragm which acts as the female half of the tool. As a result, production costs went from approximately $30.00 per piece to $8.00…a savings of more than 70% per piece! Read More

  • From Rubber Pad Forming to Deep Draw Hydroforming: Slash Production Time/Eliminate Wrinkling

    Using their Triform deep draw sheet hydroforming press, this manufacturer was able to eliminate spring back, scrap, manual handwork and wrinkles.
