SMQ-Stamp/Mold/Quench

Lightweight, stiffened, heat-treated, multi-thickness part from sheet stock produced in a single operation.

50% increase in bending stiffness and yield strength for Magnesium & Aluminum Parts

Greater Dimensional Control

Less Energy Consumption

Lower Total Cost

The increase in temperature reduces the strength  of the material, allowing it to flow into stiffening features or embossments. 

A preheated blank is stamped using a smart susceptor die as in a warm forming operation. 

Part is quenched inside the die resulting in heat treatment up to T4 or T6 (aluminum).
