Tube Hydroforming is a type of die forming that is used to shape certain metals, including aluminum and stainless steel, into strong but lightweight pieces. This method is often used in the automotive industry, especially for sports cars, and is also used to create the tubes used in bicycle frames.
When your product represents a structural component of your customer’s purchase it sure better be structurally sound. Who can afford a costly recall or, even worse, be responsible for a personal accident? To help ensure against part failure American Hydroformers employs exacting Finite Element Analysis (FEA) procedures.
More and more companies are becoming aware and taking advantage of wind energy and its environment friendly benefits. This refreshing pursuit of clean alternative energy has led to a global increase in wind energy production. As a result, there is a growing need for the components necessary to create wind energy, making the prospect of hydroformed components all that more appealing.
When you are working with metal, you will find that there are a variety of options and tools available for you to use. Although there are so many options for you to choose from, many companies decide to use hydroforming. Hydroforming is perfect for creating shapes using different types of metals. Hydroforming gives you several benefits when it comes to work operations, efficiency, productivity, and the cost.
