Hot Forming is a punch/die forming technique with a short cycle time using medium-high temperature to increase the formability of the material being formed.
This process results in a low thickness dispersion and involves punching a sheet, followed by forming at a controlled temperature (700°C for Ti-6Al-4V).

HF Process

Hot forming is used for the production of deep drawing shapes and structures with high strength materials in a single cycle.

The parts typically produced with hot forming are:

  • pylon panels
  • nacelle panels
  • piping components
  • heat shields
  • jet engine components
  • compressor parts
