Finite Element Analysis: One Concept Fledgling Firms Shouldn’t Overlook

Finite Element Analysis: One Concept Fledgling Firms Shouldn’t Overlook

If you are relatively new to the manufacturing or construction field, the term finite element analysis may seem both unfamiliar and intimidating. However, we assure you that it’s one concept well worth looking into on a number of levels. For one, it has the potential to save lives, decrease accidents and prevent public relations nightmares. Allow us to explain using metal stage supports as examples.

What is Tube Hydroforming?

What is Tube Hydroforming?

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.

Finite Element Analysis strengthens hydroformed parts and customer relationships

Finite Element Analysis strengthens hydroformed parts and customer relationships

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.

The Power of Hydroformed Components

The Power of Hydroformed Components

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.

Metal Stamping and Hydroforming: High-Quality Work at a Low Cost

Metal Stamping and Hydroforming: High-Quality Work at a Low Cost

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. 

Friction Stir Welding Brings Alloys Together

Friction Stir Welding Brings Alloys Together

The process of friction stir welding is a relatively new way to join metal components together. It is a metal joining method that has applications in industrial fabrications and manufacturing such as aerospace, automotive manufacturing, and industrial engineering, anywhere that metal components need welds that meet the most demanding specifications.

What Is Hydroforming: The Basics

What Is Hydroforming: The Basics

Hydroforming is a unique process used to form metal. As a unique process, it also solves unique problems. Hydroforming makes a number of products possible that wouldn’t be possible through mainstream methods. Although it is not the most common method of forming metal, it is very useful, and a necessity to our society today. Let’s talk a little about how hydroforming works and what it does.

FEA or Finite Element Analysis Implementation: Are You Ready To Make The Step?

It does not matter where you look, you will always find information on how various companies and organizations have used an engineering simulation as part of their strategy when it comes to development. One of the best examples of engineering simulation is FEA or Finite Element Analysis.

Tube Hydroforming vs. Sheet Hydroforming: What is Hydroforming?

Tube Hydroforming vs. Sheet Hydroforming: What is Hydroforming?

What is hydroforming? Hydroforming is when the force of water, hydraulic fluids, or oils is used to shape a single part. There are two types of hydroforming and each has uses when creating products from steel, aluminum, etc. Hydroforming, used in industries, creates parts without using welds. This makes a stronger part and sometimes a product is created from a single piece of metal. So, what are the two types of hydroforming? They are Tube Hydroforming and Sheet Hydroforming.
