3D Metal Forming B.V.
3D METAL FORMING is the global leader in METAL FORMING of very large and complex, double curved, shapes for the Aerospace, Architectural and Energy Markets.
For the Aerospace Industry we form both Near Net Shapes (Preforms) out of thick plate and Final product shapes out of sheet metal. Our capability of Low Cost metal forming complex shapes out of thick plate is an Enabling Technology for designing and manufacturing Monolithic Aerospace Structures eliminating the need for (sub)assembly.
Current Nose Fuselage designs as shown on the left are typically made up of hundreds of different parts which are assembled by means of drilled holes and rivets in special purpose assembly jigs.
3D Metal Forming designed & manufactured all #64 Double Curved panels in the “Architectural Nose” and the Double Curved panels below the Escalator and Stairs of the Erasmus Train Station.
3D Metal Forming is developing Demonstrators and Prototypes for Aerospace OEM customers as part of their Technology Readiness Level programs. High Energy Hydro Forming will deliver our Customers increased competitiveness by decreasing production cost and reducing weight. The High Energy Hydro Forming process is fully capable of reliably and repetitively producing high quality parts at rates of #75 per month. 3D Metal Forming is in the process of implementing EN 9100.
3D Metal Forming delivered on June 2nd 2016 the last set of double curved panels for the Erasmus Train Station, The Hague, The Netherlands to van den Bersselaar Constructie.
