HEATform leads the industry in the application of warm forming or Hot Metal Gas Forming (HMGF) for hollow bodies.
Applicable to most metal alloys, unique control over wall thickness has created a dramatic shift in how complex products can be produced. Design freedom can be realized cost effectively by:
Only 10% of the energy expenditure of light hydroforming.
More economical tools focus on forming parts rather than constraining massive forming pressures. HEATform’s ability to control wall thickness optimizes raw material use and final product weight.Part overview
HEATform gives you the possibility of superplasically forming materials by using a standard industrial manufacturing process.
Practical Superplastic Forming (SPF) requires exotic alloys, exacting temperature control, and slow, controlled, material flow.
HEATform provides the forming freedom of super plastic forming with a standard, rapid manufacturing process. Exotic product designs, once exclusive to cost insensitive military applications, are available to all industry segments.Markets
