 Strain Rate Controlled Gas

Superplastic forming press is a multi-step process that uses a hot-forming press and an inert, pressurized gas such as argon. First, a metal blank is loaded in a die between two platens. The press then heats the blank and die to temperatures as high as 1000 degrees Celsius. When the superplastic temperature is achieved, the inert gas inflates the blank to fit the die. This produces a part which conforms to the die's smallest details. In some cases, superplastic forming press is followed by diffusion bonding, a solid-state joining process that holds pre-machined components under load at elevated temperatures in a protective atmosphere or vacuum. Often, superplastic forming equipment that performs diffusion bonding is used with aerospace applications.
