Avure fluid cell metal forming press advances capabilities of Jones Metal Products Co.

The installation of a new high-pressure fluid cell metal forming press from Avure Technologies expands opportunities for USA-based Jones Metal Products Company (JMP) to provide economical parts-forming solutions to customers in demanding industries--aerospace, defense, medical, rail, lighting, and power generation, for example--where there is zero margin for error.

The Avure model QFC 0.7x1.8-800 fluid cell press features dual rectangular trays measuring 27.5” x 72” (700 x1850 mm), a size that will enable Jones to expand applications in existing and new markets. The press operates at a highly cost- effective 11,600 psi (800 bar).

According to Dan Erb, President and CEO of Jones Metal Products, in West Lafayette, Ohio, the Avure press results in better parts tolerances and lower per-part production costs.

“We are buying the Avure press to expand our maximum forming area up to 27.5 inches by 72 inches,” Mr. Erb comments. “This will allow us to better serve our current markets and expand into new ones. The Flexform process from Avure fits our company very well, and we look forward to the partnership with Avure.”

Jones Metal Products currently utilizes several Cincinnati Hydroforming machines. After visiting Avure's manufacturing facility in Västerås, Sweden, the company decided to introduce new forming methods utilizing high pressure as the next step in its planned growth trajectory.

In addition to the press purchase, Avure and JMP have agreed to collaborate in the promotion of Hydroform/Flexform technology awareness in the market.

Mr. Erb comments, “Avure has come to us with a solution, not only with the proper equipment, but also with a long-term partnership that will have our organizations working very closely together. We are very excited and pleased with the Avure approach and business mentality.”

Tres Frank, Avure's Business Development Manager, Americas, says, “This press offers Jones a high-production capacity, due to the size of the forming trays in relation to the press cycle time. Combined with its low cost of operation, small footprint, and easy installation directly at floor level, the QFC 0.7x1.8-800 is a perfect match for JMP, delivering the flexibility and growth opportunity the company is looking for.”
