Ripe for volume production

Prototyping – testing up to 45 mm pipe diameter

Pleasant surprises are a delight. Those of the unpleasant variety tend to cause worry lines, especially when new products are being
developed. The prototyping department at transfluid® now helps protect against the undesirable type of surprises.

Continuously more complex requirements and smaller tolerance specifications present quite a challenge in the area of pipe forming in particular.

And after the new development of a very promising idea, the product must of course go to volume production in an optimal manner. Our prototyping solutions provide process stability here and allow for versatile testing procedures. Components and tools with a pipe diameter of up to 45 mm can be tested in our research department. The versatile testing takes place on two REB axial forming machines with an upsetting force of up to 25 tonnes. In addition, an SRM rolling forming machne with CNC control is available.

Precision for volume production maturity

Of course we rely on the department not only for transfluid® research. Highly precise forming tools are also deployed for specific customer projects.

If requested, we try out new forming geometries and test future efficient tool concepts for their quality with regards to volume production maturity. Modern measuring instruments, such as an optically and tactilely functioning measuring apparatus, ensure that the components and tools can be measured precisely and that the results can be reliably documented.

Zero series without a machine park

Customers without their own machine park can precisely analyse and optimise a zero series at transfluid®. The assessment can be carried out with high-strength materials and components, even independently of the tools for some geometries. We thus offer the zero series or prototype production at particularly optimal costs.
