Whenever there’s an opportunity to reduce the weight of a car or light-duty truck, it’s that reduced weight which moves us closer… “to [meeting] the 2025 CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) standards,” says Brain Fish, North American Automotive Marketing Manager at Dupont. An average goal set for passenger cars and light-duty trucks is 54.5 mpg by 2025. That makes lighter vehicles top priority.

When the right situation presents itself, sheet metal hydroforming will be an efficient and cost-effective manufacturing process. However, the situation will depend on the project and the type of equipment that will be available.
For years, American Hydroformers has been using tubular hydroforming in the automotive industry, appliance industry, and other industries to convert multi-part assemblies into hydroformed parts that are light and durable. Our ability to use hydroforming effectively allows us to create simple and complex parts that we would not be able to create using conventional or traditional forming methods.
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.
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.
Hydroforming: Yet Another Midwest Distinctive. When Americans think of the Midwest, several distinctives may spring to mind. First, there’s Chicago, the Midwest’s largest and best-known city. Then there are the Midwestern sports teams, such as the Ohio State Buckeyes. The Midwest has always been known for its farming and has been more recently singled out for its ability to draw Hipsters. On a less well-known front, the Midwest occasionally gives its citizens a peek at the Aurora Borealis. More recently, the Midwest has become home to some of the nation’s most promising start-up companies. In fact, the region may soon have more start-ups than the Silicon Valley.
American Hydroformers: Planning Ahead. The manufacturing process that is used to form flat metal sheets into compounded sheets by exerting water pressure on a hydroforming press is known as hydroforming. In the automotive industry and others, hydroformed components have significantly improved the quality of products that are being produced. Hydroforming has also opened the doors to many new ideas and designs.
There is a good chance that the majority of the things you use on a regular basis were created using a hydroforming process. The vehicle you drive every day and the bicycle your children ride every day after school were built using a hydroforming process. Hydroforming is an effective and efficient process that is used to form metals. The hydroforming process holds a variety of features that make it an increasingly popular choice in a variety of industries, including the automotive industry.
