Hydroforming is a fabrication method that is regularly used in the transportation and automotive industries. Hydroforming is used so often because it allows even the most complex shapes to be created without the need to weld parts. Many automakers have relied on a traditional stamping method and a traditional welding method to fabricate components.

When it comes to Finite Element Analysis, more companies than ever are putting this new technology to use at various points in the production process. Everything from the probability of fractures in ceramic components to a tendency toward buckling in honeycomb structures has been analyzed by this method.
One of the most popular and most unconventional metal forming processes is tube hydroforming. Tube hydroforming is generally used to create various tubular components. When this process is used, tubes are shaped into different forms using internal pressure to force the blank tube to fit into the shape of the given die cavity.
Here at American Hydroformers, we pride ourselves in keeping current with industry trends. That is just one of the many reasons why people to trust us with their high-temperature metal gas forming needs.
