|Type of Press||Triform Deep Draw Sheet Hydroforming 12-10-7BD|
|Max Chamber Pressure||10,000 PSI|
|Forming Area||12" diameter|
|Challenge||Reduce manual hand work.|
|Solution||Thanks to the flexible diaphragm of the Triform press, parts are produced with a smooth, uniform, scratch-free surface, typically requiring no additional finishing. By eliminating the need for secondary hand work, labor costs have been significantly reduced.|
|Challenge||Improve overall part quality.|
|Solution||Torn or wrinkled parts are easily eliminated with Triform's programmable pressure and punch position. The "In-Sight" feature gives an operator the ability to manipulate the process variables throughout the forming cycle and save successful recipes for fast recall.|
|Results||Spring back, scrap, manual handwork, and wrinkles are relics of the past. The Triform press automated manufacturing operations so successfully that it's saved a total of 55 minutes in the production of each of these parts.|
An aerospace parts manufacturer was using a rubber pad press to form their products, many of which turned out successfully. However, their flanged parts, formed on the rubber pad press, suffered from high scrap rates due to excessive wrinkling and high costs due to the need for highly skilled craftsmen and significant amounts of hand finishing work.
By transferring production to a Triform Sheet Hydroforming Deep Draw press, this manufacturer was able to form the flanged components in one single press cycle without any wrinkling. In fact, the parts are now so easily and dependably formed time after time that there’s no longer a need for highly experienced press operators, or for skilled craftsmen to perform labor-intensive hand finishing.
Thanks to the Triform, spring back, scrap, manual handwork – and most importantly, wrinkles – are relics of the past. The Triform press has automated manufacturing operations so successfully that it’s saved a total of 55 minutes in the production of each of these parts.
