Flexible Forming

Flexible Sheet Metal Forming with Stretch Forming and Incremental Forming Thilo Vogel

Flexible forming processes allow for the adaptation and modification of the product geometry with little effort. They enable the economical production of prototypes and small series, an extended geometry portfolio and the production of thickness-optimized semi-finished products. Therefore they are serving lightweight design and the trend towards shorter product development cycles as well as increasingly individualized products.
