Forming

  • We develop processes for bulk forming and sheet forming of metallic materials.
  • We design complex thermomechanical treatment procedures.
  • We possess experience with forging, extrusion, hot and cold rolling, production of pressed sheet parts and the hydroforming technique.
  • We study unconventional processes, such as the preparation of materials with ultrafine structures by means of severe plastic deformation techniques, rolling of sheet with variable thickness, and others.
  • We carry out rolling of steels, aluminium alloys, nickel superalloys, titanium and other non-traditional materials.
  • We deliver new design, process and material solutions for forming tools to extend their life and improve their reliability in service.
  • We supply prototype formed products.
 
Press
 

Roll

  1. Hydraulic forging press
    • Maximum forging force: 2500  tf
    • Closed-die and open-die forging
    • Simulations of the operation of various types of presses and hammers
    • Adapted for “Software-Controlled Forging”
  2. Rolling mill
    • Reversing rolling
    • Hot rolling of strip and sheet (two-high roll arrangement) and cold rolling of strip and sheet (four-high roll arrangement)
    • Thermomechanical rolling
    • Straightening and grinding of rolled products
  3. Other equipment
    • Continuous extrusion in a ConformTM S315i machine and grain refinement using the ECAP-Conform method
    • Grain refinement using the ECAP technique (Equal Channel Angular Pressing)
    • Universal press for forming small specimens
    • Rapid radial forging machine
    • Software and computer stations for numerical modelling of forming processes
    • Thermomechanical simulator
