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.
Casting vs. metal stamping: should metal stamping be your choice? Working with metal is not a new method of manufacturing. Since the middle of the 1800s, a large number of metal forming operations started to grow rapidly. Ultimately, these operations turned into what we know them to be today. With the creation of the metal forming operations, there was bound to be a degree of separation. In this industry, many companies have a specialty in one metal forming operation.
We have written in the past about how American Hydroformers has taken center stage as the Midwest’s best and most convenient choice for those in need of hydroforming services. In addition to our wealth of experience (evidenced by satisfied customers) and our reliability, we highlight proximity as one of our best features.
American Hydroformers: News Roundup from Around the Web
The closing months of 2017 proved interesting in the world of hydroforming. As evidence, we have collected some articles around the web to keep you informed of recent announcements, advancements, and developments.
Motorcycle frame manufacturing is an ideal match for hydroforming technology. Motorcycle performance is a function of power and weight. Anything that can help reduce weight on a motorcycle without compromising structural integrity pays off in performance.
