Deep draw hydroforming is in competition with a variety of other manufacturing processes that are used to create things we use on a daily basis. However, there are several differences when it comes to deep draw hydroforming that sets this process apart from the other manufacturing processes. Deciding the right choice can certainly be confusing, and you will likely hear different opinions and advice as you are considering the right method for your needs. Unfortunately, some of those opinions and advice will be based on myths and misconceptions.
Here are a few myths that we want to debunk so you will be able to make the best decision for your next production.
Myth 1: Deep Draw Hydroforming Is Not For Complex Parts
This is incorrect. Deep draw hydroforming can create parts that are simple and parts that are complex. Not only will these parts be created without any hiccups, but the ending results will be strong and durable.
Myth 2: Deep Draw Hydroforming Is Too Expensive
This is also incorrect. This process is a very affordable method because it is a continuous process. In fact, it is one of the most affordable methods you will find.
Myth 3: Deep Draw Hydroforming Will Create Weak Materials
This is probably one of the most heard misconceptions about deep draw hydroforming. During the deep draw hydroforming processes, the material will not be damaged. The material will be formed under a significant amount of pressure, but this pressure will create the desired shape of the part you are creating. While the material may be stretched, it will be very minor. When the part is finished, you will discover that the part will feel stronger than the actual material you used.
