ACCURACY AND REPEATABILITY OF ARGON GAS PRESSURES COUPLED WITH MULTI-ZONE TEMPERATURE CONTROL

Accurate and repeatable argon gas pressures and multi-zone temperature control are critical elements of a successful superplastic forming operation. These process variables are easily managed using Macrodyne’s proprietary flexible and repeatable superplastic forming press control system. These presses are available in standard configurations or can be customized to suit the Buyer’s specific requirements, regardless of the size or complexity.
