Hard Metal Sheet Metal, Hot Forming

LAUAK Group invested into two Hot Forming and Super Plastic Forming industrial machines (with a maximum strength of 800 T). Those both technologies allow to manufacture complex parts of shape in titanium with very high mechanical performances for an optimized final part mass.

 

  • Hot Forming: In heating platens press, deformation by tooling punch / matrix maintained at temperature (600 to 800 °C) compatible with elongations up to 50%.

  • Super Plastic Forming: On matrices made of refractory alloy, 900°C stamping by “gaseous punch” (Argon inert gas) to form the metal and allow extreme elongations (up to 500%).
