From 0 to 3,000 in seconds
In hydroforming, hollow bodies are expanded from the inside into a mold using high water pressure of up to 3,000 bars within seconds. Even after 30 years the whole potential of this process has not been fully achieved. Multistage mechanical forming steps can be efficiently combined using hydroforming.
Hydroforming has revolutionized the possibilites of tube forming. With this new process previously thought unkown shapes have now become feasible.
This new technique allows greater flexibility with regards to design and materials selection. Stainless steel, steel, aluminum or non-ferrous metals are prime candidates that can be processed into exact dimensions and shapes. This process offers high dimensional accuracy as well as repeatability. Hydroformed components offer the optimum combination of space efficiency, freedom of design and weight savings in combination with maximum strength and precision.
