THE NEXT GENERATION OF SHEET HYDROFORMING
Triform: Deep Draw Sheet Hydroforming
Deep Draw Sheet Hydroforming Overview
For applications that require a controlled flow of the material, such as deep drawn parts or those with curved geometries which have the potential to wrinkle during the forming process, Triform Deep Draw presses are the ideal solution.
• Form parts with up to 12 inch depth of draw and 32 inch blank diameter
• Depth of draw accuracy to 1% of full scale and +/-0.002" respectively
• Simple deactiviation of punch allows for Fluid Cell operation
All hydraulic, mechanical and electrical components, as well as CNC controls components, are standardized and considered "off the shelf" from the OEM suppliers, so they are readily available at supply houses worldwide. All critical components are sourced from top-of-the-line manufacturers such as Allen Bradley, Parker Hannifin, Bosch Rexroth, Oil Gear and others. We design each system with serviceability in mind.
Deep Draw models use a punch cylinder (on which the tooling is attached) that extends upward during the bladder pressurization to draw the material into the bladder and form the part.
"Clam Shell" containment system dramatically reduces weight, allowing for portability with no pit or foundations required.
Tooling Costs Substantially reduced
Thanks to our single tool technology, Triform hydroform presses can reduce tooling costs by 50% to 90% compared to conventional presses. There is no need for a mating die to the punch (male die), as the flexible rubber diaphragm in the machine acts as a universal female. Triform tooling is easily manufactured from standard, inexpensive materials and typically has a longer life than conventional press tooling, due to the steady, uniform pressure applied during the Triform process.
Tools made on Fortus 3D Production Systems are ideal for Hydroforming. Fast throughput tooling on Fortus is produced at a fraction of the cost of traditional tools.
Triform Deep Draw maintains uniform wall thicknes on parts.
