Tube Hydroforming Updates: News Snippets from Around the Web

Beginning in the 1970’s, the process of tube hydroforming has met the increasing demand for the manufacture of simple, lightweight components. Over the next few decades, this process has developed to maximize strengths and eliminate weaknesses.

Recent innovations are aimed to improve competitiveness of hydroforming technology by reducing initial investment cost, increasing production rate, and material utilization, consolidating more parts into single parts, and finding ways to eliminate drawbacks, such as excessive thinning (Journal of Materials Processing Technology).
