Super Plastic Forming

Superplastic forming is the manufacturing process of complex parts from superplastic materials like titanium and alloys. Under controlled temperature and strain rates, metallic microstructures are de-formed into large strains using low force.

This process produces complex, 3D shapes with constant section thickness, no re-entrant angles and large deformations from any metal with a stable superplastic microstructure.

This process produces large complex components in one operation. This allows us to keep parts light and avoid assembly work, a particular advantage for aerospace products.
