For many years, American Hydroformers has been one of the leaders in hydroforming technology and friction stir welding technology. Friction stir welding is a type of technique that offers a variety of benefits and advantages over one of the more traditional methods known as fusion welding. Friction stir welding has the ability to create a bond of any size, and this is one of the reasons why it has the ability to serve a wide range of industries.

From time to time, new discoveries change the way we approach various aspects of industry and technology. Recently, the discovery of a new metal has us doing exactly that.
Is Finite Element Analysis on your radar for projects you plan to develop during 2019? If not, it should be.
What It Is Finite Element Analysis
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is an engineering technique used to obtain “approximate solutions of boundary value problems.” By running the specs of your prototype through FEA software, technicians are able to determine strengths, weaknesses, and potential refinements.
Though carbon steel and stainless steel are two major contenders that benefit from hydroforming, they are not alone. Applications for aluminum hydroforming are on the rise. Today we will highlight three products significantly improved with hydroformed aluminum parts.
