Superform is the world's leading supplier of Superformed components for a wide variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, rail transportation, medical and architecture.

From its two manufacturing facilities in the UK and USA, Superform supplies complex parts to customers such as  Airbus, Aston Martin, Bentley, Boeing, Bombardier, British Aerospace, Goodrich, Lamborghini, Lockheed, Morgan Cars, Rolls Royce, Siemens and many others around the globe.

Over the past 35 years Superform has developed exclusive forming processes for materials ranging from medium strength aluminum alloys for automotive and rail applications, to high-strength airframe alloys, including magnesium sheet and carbon composites.
Superforming gives designers the freedom to create complex geometric shapes that conventional forming processes cannot produce.

On most projects, the tooling investment for Superforming is far less than that associated with conventional matched-die tools and offers significant cost benefits where low volume, high variety manufacture is required. Superform has also developed the ability to form complex parts from magnesium sheet.

Superform has extensive Computer Aided Engineering capabilities  including process simulation and Computer Aided Design offering three dimensional sheet forming solutions from car body panels to engine nacelles for business jets. These state of the art tools allow modelling of new components to determine process feasibility and provide key information in terms of thickness distribution to support
customer Finite Element Analysis.

With ongoing investment in technological development in tooling, part handling and press control, Superform continues to push back the boundaries of what can be achieved using the unique Superforming process.
