HYSON | The Metal Forming Technology Center
In January, 2015 HYSON officially opened our Metal Forming Technology Center. The first of its kind in the region, the MFTC provides a platform for metal forming advancement through research, development and tryout.
The center is equipped with the latest forming technology, including a 300-ton Servo Press, HYSON’s 50 ton MASTERform(TM) Servo-Controlled Cushion and INTELLImax(TM) knockout system. The center not only serves as a central hub for customer tryouts, but also for academic, steel and OEM collaboration and study.
With the launch of the center, HYSON is helping to lead the development of next generation force products that help solve forming issues, improve customer’s processes and enable the future utilization of lighter and safer metals with more efficient forming.
