    Technology | Press-forming of exhaust components...

With many years of producing complex forms and shapes that are often incorporated into today’s highly sophisticated high-revving race engine exhaust designs, we are considered as masters in the state-of-the-art process of press-forming for exhaust manufacturing. This process allows us to offer a great deal of flexibility to our customers who require a fast and relatively low cost solution to developing exhausts within short lead times.

A controlled multi-stage hydraulic press-forming process gives a more consistent wall thickness than many other forming processes, which is critical in the manufacturing of lightweight thin-walled exhaust components made from exotic materials such as Inconel® 625, Haynes 718 and titanium in material thicknesses from 0.50mm to 2.00mm.

These component parts have been tested extensively and have survived the extreme environment of many areas of Motorsport including Formula1, LeMans and Supercar exhausts.

Costs are a fraction of that of Hydro-forming tooling and the lead-time can often be a matter of days, not weeks.

Our own choice of special tooling material is stocked by Primary Designs to further the reduction in lead-time and we have several reliable local CNC machining companies that are experts in producing high-quality press-form tooling to our requirements and tolerances.
