If you take time to check out the best and newest bikes on the market, from dirt bikes to street bikes to racing bikes, you’ll find most of them have one thing in common.
They all have hydroformed components.
Take, for example, the 2020 Polygon Cleo 2.
Creating bellows with tube hydroforming. At American Hydroformers, we are excited to have tube hydroforming as one of our popular services. If you are not sure what tube hydroforming is, we are glad you stopped here.
Earlier this year, we discussed what the COVID-19 global pandemic could mean for the world of hydroforming, particularly on the friction stir welding market.
Today, we intend to discuss the hydroforming market as a whole.
Right now, we’re all keeping an eye on our bottom lines. With the economy still in flux due to the shakeup brought on by COVID-19, we’re all doing what we can to keep ourselves in the black.
One step you could consider is Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
Those who invest in application generally save time and money in the long run.
How hydroforming works and what it is. Hydroforming is a cost-efficient way of transforming and shaping ductile metals (like aluminum and stainless steel) into lightweight, sturdy pieces. It uses fluid pressure in place of punches and dies.
If you find yourself too busy these days to keep up with what’s going on in the world of hydroforming, never fear.
We’ve rounded up the top stories from summer of 2020 and gathered them right here just for you.
In one form or another, welding has been around for hundreds of years.
According to the book Friction Stir Welding: From Basics to Applications, “Although joining pieces together can be traced back more than 2,000 years, welding emerged as a viable manufacturing process only in the late 1800s.” It was not until the 1990s, however, that the method we know as friction stir welding emerged.
In that sense, it’s a “newer” technology.
When discussing hydroforming with some who has never heard of the process, the obvious question that will arise is: what is hydroforming?
One of the most important processes in manufacturing is metal forming. The metal forming process is available for the effective production of a variety of products and components. One of the methodologies that can be found in the metal forming category is deep draw hydroforming. The deep draw hydroforming methodology is one that will offer a significant amount of value and efficiency, as well as cost-effectiveness.
